Re: Replacing Bay Window

Exactly, thanks, I got the reveal adjusted better, and used some alum tin plates three behind each hinge and it brought the door over a bit, so more reveal on the hinge side, and its sitting good, and sealing better, and adjusted the strike plate, and like you say, that brought it in tighter against...

Re: Replacing Bay Window

Guy down at the door store where they make the same custom door frames, he was saying I just got to re adjust the reveal and shims. But I can only adjust them so far, as the top pc of door frame comes across and is blocked or runs into the other vertical pc. And bottom level has been set already. No...

Re: Replacing Bay Window

Thanks, I will look into it. You asked earlier how much my house was dropped. It looks like its right about 1 inch sunken in the right corner if looking at the front of the house. Is that pretty bad? 26 ft span or wide house at front. Looked like no footings poured, just a wall, stem wall, I cant re...

Re: Replacing Bay Window

Im confused now.
I had to use casing nails to nail the brick molding in place, the molding that goes around the door frame on the exterior.

Re: Replacing Bay Window

Curious what you use to fill in over the screw holes around the door frame and brick mold nail holes?
I tried alex plus type stuff, latex acrylic caulking, but it just dries concave with divit.
Then I used that wood filler stuff, but notice it says interior on it.

Re: Replacing Bay Window

Yea I read ya. It did work, it made it so it wasnt so easy to pull apart, I just made the nails up higher so it locked them in tighter. Seems to work. See gaps on some of the, some sit really flush and no gap.

Hey thanks. I painted the brick mold with a few coats, then put on j channel. I wonder if I should have put on a drip cap.

Re: Replacing Bay Window

I seemed to have straighted it out, pushed the top in and it pushes more evenly against the seal, gonna try putting it in a bit more. Would you say, is it best to have my door frame in board of the outer layer on outside of house, or outboard of it? I guess it is a bit crooked so it wont be straight...

Re: Replacing Bay Window

I ended up, removing the 2x4 jack studs and putting in 2x6 studs on either side for jack studs for door frame. So it was the hard way, but I think it will be better then to make sure I get the screws biting in. I took the door off the hinges, so I will install the door frame jamb next, just hinge si...

Re: Replacing Bay Window

I think my only option is to attach 2x4 to the inside. I dont think it would work so good to bring the door further towards the outside. Or I could re frame the door with 2x6, which is probably what I should have done in the first place maybe. Or just fur it in, seems to be the best option. Without ...

Re: Replacing Bay Window

That may not work at this point, I will have to go look at it again. It actually may not do anything unless I attach a 2x4 to the king and jack studs. Know what I mean. I think anything inboard of the hinges screws and dead bolt plate, dont bite into any studs, they just reach the very edge of my 2x...

Re: Replacing Bay Window

Hey so i ran the 1.5 inch wide wood around the opening, worked perfect. Then i put a 2x4 under the header to shim that down. But there is about 1/4 inch gap at the top of the door frame.

Re: Replacing Bay Window
