External gasket on doors not sitting flat

Postby finchyboy83 » Wed May 27, 2020 11:57 am

Would anyone be able to tell me why the external gasket on my doors is not flat/straight? The installer said it would straighten out with a bit of heat but 6 months in nothing has moved. Should external gaskets be fitted before the glazing? I'm pretty sure these were forced in after the glazing.

Hi finchyboy83
There is something wrong with the installation - probably the wrong size gasket has been fitted. Get the installer back to put it right.
