Care & Maintenance
Q: What is the best way to clean sandblasted or etched glass?
A: Dust the frosted glass with a feather duster. Do this at least once per week to minimize the chance of dust accumulating on the glass.
Rinse the fronted glass, using plain water. You can use a water hose, but don't use any pressurized attachments, as they can damage the etching.
Wash the glass, using mild dishwashing liquid and water. A lint-free terry cloth towel is the ideal type of towel to use for this job. Ideally, you will do this once per month.
Spray ammonal-free glass cleaner on a terry cloth towel and wipe the glass. Wipe the glass until the glass cleaner is completely dry to avoid streaking.
Q: Am I able to buy touch up paint or stain to fix some scratches on my door?
A: Yes, but it will need to be purchased through one of our Dealers.

Q: How do I stain and seal a fiberglass door?

Q: Can I sand down and restain a fiberglass door?
A: Please view our finishing instructions.
Q: There's a draft coming from the bottom of my door, how do I fix this?
A: There are two situations that typically cause a draft at the bottom of your door:
1. The first thing to check is your door sweep. The sweep is the rubber seal on the bottom of the door slab. The sweep is intended to make contact against the riser bar of your sill (threshold). If the sweep has noticeably been compromised from daily use, a new one can be sourced from your nearest Bayer Built dealer in order to replace it.
2. If your sweep is still intact, the next thing to check is the riser bar. This is the brown bar within the sill (threshold) that makes contact with the door sweep when the door is closed. If you can see daylight between the riser bar and the door sweep when closed, the riser bar can be adjusted to close those areas. To adjust, gently pry out the round brown caps located within the riser bar and adjust the screws with a screwdriver. The riser bar can be adjusted up or down in order to eliminate drafts or reduce where the sweep may be too tight against the riser bar.
