Composite Front Door With Dye Coming off When Wiped?

Postby tomw82 » Mon Dec 07, 2015 1:35 pm


We just got a new composite red front door. It's a door manufactured by Door-Stop, but sold by a reseller.
When I clean this door with just water and paper towel or cloth, the door dyes them. I have attached a picture showing this.


I'm afraid something is wrong with this door. Is it normal for a composite door to dye like that?

Simply Build It

just fitted one today, it does not normally come off, but could be residue from the spray process, Clean the door with a hose and sponge, and then try it again. If it still comes off, then its a manufacturing fault
