How durable are your doors?

What is the warranty coverage for doors?

It depends on the door your purchase. For labour, we offer a standard five year installation and labour warranty. For products, the number of years ranges based on the quality of the door.

Locks and security mechanisms are separate for warranty coverage, so check your product specifications upon installation to determine how you are covered for repairs and replacement.

What is involved in replacing my door?

SPring and summer are best, where the temperature is not too cold at night (can slow down curing and can freeze the water mixed in with the cement), or too hot in the daytime (too much heat will rush the drying process). Best temps are at around 15° to 29° Celcius. Overcast days are ideal as well, since direct sun can also contribute to the issue of the layers applied shrinking too quickly.

How do I measure my door for replacement?

Measuring for your door involves several steps in measuring for your Calgary exterior door. They are best followed with instructions from JELD-WEN Canada.
