Marietta used a DOORBRIM Rain Diverter to stop leaking and prevent dripping.

Mariett’s husband altered the door canopy for a perfect fit to their siding. She calls it “a real KISS invention = Keep It Sweet & Simple. It looks good and is doing its job. It indeed is a brilliant product.
Often the preventive maintenance is way behind and thus running into bigger issues that also cost more $$$. This sure is a wonderful product and we only wish we’d found this sooner.”



Here’s what some viewers on Mariette’s blog had to say:

“That’s brilliant, Mariette! Such a simple thing, but so necessary and attractive to boot. :-)”

:Well Done And Looking Good”

“It looks really beautiful and bright. Well done Pieter for installing it; and you for choosing it.”

“What an interesting and brilliant product! I would have loved to have one of those at previous home we rented a long time ago… but then, if the landlordof that place had done some much-needed work, something like that wouldn’t have been necessary. I’m going to bookmark that website for future reference!”

“Great idea to protect the wood from the elements. Amazing how quickly moisture can rot wood.I know first hand having had a beach house!”

“It seems like a good solution to keep the door open for years to come.”

Why buy DOORBRIM products to fix a French door leak?

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 without front gutters. 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. I am a past property maintenance manager and realize firsthand the value in spending wisely. However, it will be prudent to consider that our products will also protect & preserve your doors, jambs & hardware for many additional years. You don’t have to wait for the inevitable deterioration and leaks from normal weather and UV rays. A door canopy is cheap insurance compared to future repair and replacement.
