My GC is a bit nervous about getting the install right since its hung on hinges that are lag bolted to the underlying structure. The frames aren’t perfectly square so he will need to do some shimming to get it just right. The issue is that he can’t shim the jambs because the lag screws go deep into the supporting frame. So I suggested that he build a temp support to hold the doors in the exact closed position he wants it and then use that to line up the hinges.
Anyone try anything like this before? Given the weight we are worried that they will shift a bit and then will be out of alignment. Or over time they will sag. The lags have a out a 1/32 of an inch of play within the hole of the hinge. Plus the hinges are mounted on the face of the building frame so he can’t shim it horizontally.
The poor seal caused much condensation both inside and out. Unfortunately this is taking its toll in the form of minor isolated corrosion (as seen in pic) along with a constant mildew problem. This Kenmore (#2539768481) is probably 12-15 years old and, while still in otherwise very good condition, I’m not sure investing in a $100+ genuine gasket is worth it.
Any tricks-of-the-trade appreciated.

-After looking through many documents, it appears you are quite limited in the amount of step down you can get from the door to the deck. When adhering to the allowable ledger bolt patterns and the band joist bolts, without completely changing the size of your joists, you are stuck with practically no step down. I am using 2×10 joists for the deck, and house band joist is 2×10, which by code would only allow a .75″ step. That is not great for snow in New jersey. Check out link to confirm
-Another area where I wish I has some room was the footings 5ft from the foundation rule. Unless you intend on digging your deck footings to the elevation of your house footings (unrealistic), than you have to space the deck off further than 5ft. This confuses me as the none of the maximum allowable joist overhangs in the code can reach span that 5ft distance. In my case this is not critical, as I am right on the edge of 5ft, however if I could cheat a little I would. Do inspections measure from the footer to the house? Pier to the house? Post to the house? Or, are they quite strict about the footer to the house distance?
-Stairs landing on concrete pads. Code says stairs must land on an area with footings of proper size and below frost. I have seen countless pictures of stairs landing right on concrete slabs, sometimes, just concrete blocks. ?
-How does an inspector, inspect your ledger attachments if he/she cannot access your interior band joist? Obviously, an owner w cannot demolish the floor to access the band joist? How does he very you are attaching the ledger to the right spots on the band joist (edge distances, no drill, no pass zones, esc)?
Thank you guys, I really need some advice here
Its not the fact that Trump is trying to tie Hillary to jewish cash…. but its the fact that Trump used that image that they got from a white supremacist post…… and reused it….
Do you want someone that dang stupid sitting in the white house ??? The guy is one ignorant sack of doodie.
Trump can say what he wants about the star….. but man… it doesnt take a 3 yr old to fiqure out what they are trying to say with the star and the pile of cash….
Maybe the US can get Mossad to deal with Trump…… in their own special way…. I know if I was in government… I would at least be considering that option…. no matter which side of the table I was sitting on.
