INTRODUCTION
For optimal performance, new primed or unfinished products should be finished or painted as soon as possible after installation. Finishing is
necessary because by nature, door construction materials are susceptable to the elements. Painting and finishing seals the surfaces, maintains,
protects and enhances the beauty of the product by keeping it less susceptible to debris and easier to clean. Keeping doors properly finished
is the first step in effective maintenance.

PRECAUTIONS, SAFETY & CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS
PRECAUTIONS & SAFETY
RECOMMENDATIONS
• Never mix cleaners or solvents. This may be dangerous as well as
ineffective.
• Do not power-wash doors or use a garden hose; this can cause
seal failure in glass units and allow water to enter the structure.
• If using commercial cleaning or finishing products or solvents,
carefully read and follow safety instructions, warnings, cautions
and disposal instructions on manufacturer’s labels. Wear
appropriate safety gear (e.g. clothing, goggles, gloves) and
provide plenty of ventilation.
• Avoid using metal tools, razor blades, or other sharp objects and
abrasive cleaners. They can damage door surfaces, scratch glass
and remove coatings.
• Immediately clean spills.
• Most solvents are flammable and/or toxic and must be handled
with extreme care. Do not use near open flame, sparks, or
electrical motors.
• Do not allow aggressive cleaners to come into contact with door
surfaces. Immediately rinse and dry.
• Do not allow cleaners to puddle or collect at glass edges near
glazing materials.
• Avoid cleaning in direct sunlight or in temperatures too hot or
too cold.
• Avoid excessive rubbing and over-cleaning.
• Do not scour.
• Clean and rinse one area at a time.
• Clean twice a year (monthly in coastal areas) or when dirty.
• After-market tints and films are not recommended on glass, as
they may cause damage to the glass and/or sealant.
NEEDED MATERIALS & TOOLS
MATERIALS
TOOLS
• Baby shampoo or mild soap, or vinegar, and water
• Soft bristle brush
• Several clean, soft, non-abrasive, absorbent lint-free dry cloths
(cleaning)
• Spray bottle
• Commercial glass cleaning products or solvents
• Sponge
• Plastic putty knife (for paint or label removal)
• Plastic wrap (for label removal)
• High quality sealant (100% polyurethane if painted and 100%
silicone if left exposed)
BASIC INSPECTIONS & MAINTENANCE
GUTTERS & OVERHANGS
Gutters and overhangs protect doors from excess exposure to water.
Clear at least once a year or as necessary.
SLAB & FRAME INSPECTION
• Inspect annually (due to the corrosive environment of coastal
areas, inspect monthly).
• Inspect stiles and rails for damage (cracks or splits in wood or
fiberglass surfaces, dents or scratches in metal surfaces).
2
• Immediately repair scratches or cracks in painted or finished
surfaces. Re-finish surfaces as necessary when finishes fade,
crack, peel, split etc.
• Check glass for cracks. If cracked, call us or your local glass
supplier for replacement.
• For insulating glass units, look for moisture or fogging between
glass panes (most likely to occur on cold mornings). This may be
an indication of seal failure. See our Seal Failure Document at
www.jeld-wen.com/resources or call us for recommendations.

BASIC INSPECTIONS & MAINTENANCE – CONTINUED
WEATHERSTRIP & SWEEP INSPECTION
Foam Wedge Inspection
Inspecting and maintaining weatherstrip can help avoid costly
structural damage from water leakage and energy loss due to air
and/or water infiltration. Replace weatherstrip, that has gaps or is
missing, torn, cracked, brittle, discolored, gummy, or that has no
“bounce back” when pressed down.
A foam wedge should be
installed at each lower corner
where the door slab is when
it's closed. If the foam wedge
is torn or missing, call us for a
replacement.
Precautions
Foam
wedge
• Solvents such as mineral spirits or petroleum-based products may
damage or dissolve weatherstrip.
• When using alcohol, always test small area first to avoid product
damage.
• Do not allow solvents or silicone to touch surfaces around
weatherstrip.
• Do not use abrasives, sanders, or anything sharp near
weatherstrip.
Light Cleaning
1. Clean with damp cloth or mild soap and water.
2. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
3. Repeat if necessary.
Non Water-Soluble Cleaning
Clean with denatured alcohol on soft cloth. Test on inconspicuous
area first. If denatured alcohol doesn’t work:
1. Clean with small amount of lacquer thinner on soft cloth. Follow
all instructions and do not get lacquer thinner on fiberglass.
BLINDS BETWEEN THE GLASS
For easiest operation, keep the slats in a fully open position while
operating.
Adjustments
1. If the operator comes off of the track, hold the operator at a
sharp angle to the glass and reinsert the two legs under the
track opening.
2. Re-couple the operator magnets.
Re-couple operator magnets
1. Slide the operator until the first click.
2. Full travel blinds will fully engage when you hear the first click.
Half travel (those units with a single side operation) will require
you to continue moving the operator up until you hear the
second click. This will ensure the magnets are fully engaged.
2. Repeat if necessary.
3. Clean with mild soap and water, then rinse. If unsuccessful,
consider replacing weatherstrip.
Weatherstrip Repair
If weatherstrip is loose or falling out of the kerf:
1. Carefully remove weatherstrip.
2. Apply thin bead of silicone sealant into kerf.
3. Reinstall weatherstrip.
4. Hold in place with tape for 24 hours.
5. Carefully remove tape.
Sweep Inspection
Visually inspect the sweep
for tears and missing
Door
components. If the sweep is
sweep
damaged, consider replacing
it. See our product guide for
replacement instructions.
When the door is closed,
the sweep should be
compressed by the threshold
Threshold
by approximately 1/8". If the
threashold has screws visible
on the top, it can be adjusted by turning the adjustment screws on
the threshold clockwise to lower the threshold or counterclockwise
to raise it. Adjust each screw until the threshold applies uniform
compression on the sweep.

EXTERIOR SIDING & PRODUCT SEALANT JOINTS
A proper seal of the joints in
the door system and between
the door and the exterior
surface of the structure will
provide a proper shield from
the elements and will keep
water and/or air from leaking
into the house.
1. Inspect sealant in the
joints for:
• Cracks
Sealant
• Voids
• Deteriorating areas (e.g. loss of adhesion)
2. Repair damaged sealant with a best quality sealant.
Note! Do not apply sealant to areas where installer or
contractor did not originally seal. Seek professional advice from
an installer or contractor if unsure.
When repairing a sealant joint, 100% silicone sealant is the
most durable, but it cannot be painted. Use 100% polyurethane
sealant if painted. Follow sealant manufacturer’s instructions for
proper application.

CLEANING GLASS
GENERAL CLEANING
STUBBORN STAIN REMOVAL
Prepare cleaning solution (1 tsp baby shampoo to one gallon of
water or 1 1/2 cups vinegar to one gallon of water).
Commercial glass cleaning products may be necessary.
1. Rinse surface with clean water from top to bottom.
2. Clean with mild soap and water and sponge or soft brush with
uniform pressure horizontally, then vertically.
3. Promptly rinse thoroughly with clean water (sponging while
rinsing may be helpful; do not allow cleaning solution to dry on
the surface or collect and puddle).
4. Wipe dry with lint-free dry cloth.
5. If necessary, repeat steps above until clean.
6. Dry door with separate cloth.
LABEL REMOVAL
Slowly peel from one corner. If label tears or sticks, moisten with
soapy water and gently scrape with plastic putty knife. Stubborn
labels can be soaked with soapy water and covered overnight with
plastic wrap. Gently remove with plastic putty knife.
• Apply small amount directly to the stain. Avoid spilling or
dripping down the glass.
• Some persistent stains may need higher strength cleaning
solutions that contain active ingredient chemicals such as
denatured alcohol or acetone. Special care must be taken when
using these types of cleaners.
• For oil and grease: try baking soda and water.

DOOR SURFACE CLEANING & HARDWARE LUBRICATION
Cleaning and lubrication help to maintain and restore smooth operation to movable parts such as hinges and locksets and, in most cases,
offers some corrosion protection.
Clean door surface and maintain hardware any time doors are not
opening or closing properly or at least bi-annually (monthly for
coastal areas):
1. Lubricate hinges with light oil (3-InOne oil or equivalent) annually or
when noisy.
®
• Clean dirt/debris with mild soap and water and rinse clean
• Tighten loose screws
• Replace damaged hardware
PRECAUTIONS
The following substances may damage protective finishes. Do not
use:
• Vinegar-based cleaners (use on glass only)
• Citrus-based cleaners (lemon, etc.)
• Paint removers
• Window cleaners
• Brick/siding washes
• Any other industrial or abrasive cleaners
