It's time to get out your paint tools and deal with the exterior doors on your home.
Here's a trick that will save you a headache this coming winter. When painting an exterior door, you must be certain to seal all six of its sides.
Exterior doors have a tendency to warp and twist when the weather turns damp. That warping is a sign that the door hasn't been properly sealed on all six sides -- outside, inside, hinge side, handle side, top and bottom.
If you want to head off having to repair your doors next winter, be sure to seal all six sides when you paint them this summer.
