Why buy DOORBRIM products?

DOORBRIM exterior rain guards are a good choice as a pemko 346 alternate weatherstrip or above door rain guard.  They are superior to all metal flashings in several aspects. Unlike some products made of steel,  DOORBRIM rain guards will never rust or corrode and will last a lifetime. Aluminum is also a dissimilar metal that could possibly interact negatively through galvanic action when mounted to steel door frames and actually lead to corrosion in some instances.  DOORBRIM rain guards also project a full 7 1/2″ away from the wall compared to smaller strips of metal without front gutters to channel water and prevent dripping.

A huge difference is our integrated front gutter which will not only prevent dripping but will direct water away from building structures. DOORBRIM products will extend the life of your doors, windows and hardware.  As a great alternative to expensive repairs and replacement, our awnings are easily installed with minimum tools. As a past property maintenance manager, I realize firsthand the value of being proactive and spending wisely. It will be prudent to consider that DOORBRIM products will also protect and preserve your doors, jambs & hardware for many additional years. You don’t have to wait for the inevitable leaks and deterioration from inclement weather and UV rays that will destroy your property. A DOORBRIM exterior door rain guard is cheap insurance compared to future repair and replacement.  Give us a try. You won’t be sorry.

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 caulk. 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.  There are many grades of caulking and most do not last forever. 100% silicone is not affected by the sun’s degrading UV rays.
  • Windows and doors should have flashing installed before siding as an added protection rather than relying solely on the trim to divert water.
  • Check to 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.
