I was pleased that when John installed our new front door +sidelight, he recognized the need to install the door higher than the previous one so it would clear the flooring appropriately. This meant work to chisel a half inch of the header away and put a 2x4 under the frame. He only installed the longer nails that were included with the deadbolt after we insisted we wanted them for security. However, there was a draft coming under the entire new door frame, so there was not a good seal of caulk under the door frame to prevent airflow into the house. (Without a good seal, you don't have good energy efficiency.) We also realized the door was not properly sealing inside the frame, and had to raise the adjustable threshold and also bend out the t*** of the strike plate to stop air (and light) from coming in around the door. He was punctual and got the job done efficiently, and charged us the price he quoted. He hauled away the old door and would have been willing to deliver the new door (but the company delivered it). He did a nice job of the exterior trim around and below the door frame.
