On this episode, Handyguy Paul brings two topics to the podcast pertaining to preventing wood rot and to wood and ground contact.
Preventing Wood Rot on Door Jambs
Paul asks Handyguy Brian about the best way to deal with rotting door jambs and in particular the garage door jambs. Brian discusses this problem in general as it relates to any exterior door. Exterior jams should be primed and painted on their end grain before installing to help prevent the absorption of moisture. The wood end grain acts as straws, soaking up moisture over time. Once rot sets in, the best repair is normally a replacement of the entire jam. Paul talks about the complications of having the garage door track structurally attached to the jam.
