Why buy DOORBRIM products?
Our awnings are superior to competitor metal flashings in several aspects. Unlike our competitors products made of steel, DOORBRIM awnings will never rust and will last a lifetime. A huge difference is the integrated front gutter. DOORBRIM awnings project a full 7 1/2″ away from the wall compared to small metal drip edges. The front gutter will not only prevent dripping but will direct water out and away from building structures. Extend the life of your doors, windows and hardware with DOORBRIM awnings. A great alternative against expensive repairs and replacement, our awnings are easily installed with minimum tools.
Send us a few images, if your experiencing window or door leaks, and our staff will analyze your circumstances and make our best recommendations. Make sure to include an image of the overall building showing the site and roof overhangs, if existing. We will make every effort to help you solve your problem and we don’t always recommend a DOORBRIM canopy.
DOORBRIM Leak Checklist Tool?
Are there any penetrations above the opening that could be the source of leaks like a wall vent or louver for attic circulation?
Look for cracks in the stucco above openings. Route out all cracks should be with a grinder and caulked. Elastomeric paint may also be a solution but not in all cases.
Broken, clogged or leaking gutters and roof flashing may excessively funnel rain water over doors and windows.
Check siding trim for faulty old or cracked caulking. Caulking doesn’t last forever and there are many grades. 100% silicone is not affected by The sun’s degrading UV rays will not affect 100% silicone.
Windows and doors should have flashing installed before siding as an added protection rather than relying solely on the trim to divert water.
See if the door is installed in a recess lower than the finish floor? Check to see if the recess sloped outwards correctly or incorrectly inwards?
Look for negative pitched concrete slabs and decking that funnel water under and around thresholds and jambs. You should not rely on caulking as the sole defense in these areas. Caulking typically fails here in time.

Good Morning, I had a local Handyman service install your Doorbrim yesterday while replacing my basement door. I am very pleased with the way it looks and the Handyman service took the paperwork and said they plan to use and recommend to other customers instead of building some from scratch to serve the same purpose. You have a very good product.

Good morning! We have had soooo much rain in the last four weeks. The DOORBRIM works better than expected! You have to know I am somewhat skeptical at times and was pleasantly surprised at how well this item worked. No more water inside my Preschool doorway and into the carpet.

The door brims are perfect! They are unobtrusive and blend right in with our house. They completely fixed the leaking water on our hardwood floors. Although I was willing to give it a go, my husband thought they might be tricky to install (they weren’t), so he had some house building friends come over to hang them. They were totally impressed with the whole concept, lol. Thanks again for all of your advice.
