Warp Tolerances

  1. "Warp" is any distortion in the door itself and does not refer to the relationship of the door to the frame or jamb in which it is hung. The term "warp" shall include bow, cup, and twist. Measuring the amount of warp present in a door shall entail the following procedures:
        1.  Bow, cup, and twist shall be measured by placing a straight-edge, taut wire, or string on the suspected concave face of the door at any angle (i.e. horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), with the door in its installed position. The measurement of bow, cup, or twist shall be made at the point of maximum distance between the bottom of the straight-edge, taut wire, or string and the face of the door.
  2. With respect to warping, Millwork Plus will only warrant doors up to 3'0" (36 inches) in width and 8'0" (96 inches) in height. Any door over 3'0" wide or 8'0" tall is not covered by the manufacturer's warranty for warping defects.
  3. Warp shall not be considered a defect unless it exceeds 1/4 inch in the plane of the door itself.

  2. Cypress doors are not covered by the warranty.
  3. The appearance of field finished doors is not warranted in any event.
  4. Natural variations in the color or texture of wood are not considered as defects.

Handling, Job Finishing, and Installation Instructions

  
1. Doors must be sealed all 6 surfaces within 3 weeks of accepting delivery.
 
2. Handle with clean gloves and do not drag across another door or other surface.
  3. Store flat on a level surface in a dry, well ventilated building. Cover to keep clean but allow air circulation.
  4. Door(s) should not be subjected to abnormal hear, extreme dryness, humid conditions, or sudden changes therein. They should be conditioned to average prevailing relative humidity of the locality before hanging.
  5. The utility or structural strength of the door must not be impaired in the fitting fo the door, the application of hardware, or cutting and altering the door for lights, louvers, panels, or any other special details.
  6. For exterior doors, use 3 hinges on the door less than 7' in height, and 4 hinges on doors over 7' in height.
  7. Before finishing, remov handling marks or effect of exposure to moisture with a thorough, final sanding of all door surfaces using 3/0 and 5/0 sandpaper and clean before applying sealant or finish, Some species of wood contain a chemical (particularly oak) that reacts unfavorably with certain finishes. Where possible, the surface should be tested for such unfavorable reactions. Application of a sealer before finishing will usually prevent the difficulty. The full beauty of wood is best emphasized by the use of a satin or semi-gloss finish.
  8. Immediately after fitting or cutting for closures, weather-strip, and/or threshold (and before hanging any interior or exterior door on the job) the entire door, including the top and bottom edges, must recieve an application of a primer and 2 coats of a good grade of paint, varnish, or lacquer.
  9. Dark colored finishes should be avoided on exterior surfaces or exterior doors.
