new doors and air coming in
I just spent a lot of money on Jeld-Wen french doors with a stationary french door on each side. So that is 4 full size windows/doors. I have a home air infiltration problem which causes high humidity levels in the summer so I wanted these doors to be very tight. I was sure this would help my problem, but I was wrong. During cold days I can feel cold air come in at the seams (certain areas between the door and the molding). Not all the seams -- just some of them. My installer said that is because my house is old and the opening wasn't square. My house was built in 1979. I am female and I think that he is trying to take advantage and is not telling me the truth. My guess is that he didn't install the doors correctly. What do you think???? I don't want to accuse him inappropriately. If he didn't install the doors correctly can I make him come back and correct the error --- he works for the company that sold me the doors - he was the salesman who earned the commission. However, the company doesn't install, so he did it on the side. Any suggestions you can offer me will be very much appreciated.
