    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.  Most noteworthy, caulking doesn’t last forever and there are many grades.  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.

  • If the door assemble is installed in a recess, check to see if the recess is sloped outwards correctly or inwards incorrectly.

  • 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. As a result, caulking typically fails here in time.
