A friend of mine owns a home in the Outer Banks, NC. They have heavy-duty sliding doors meant to withstand hurricanes.
The doors appear to be wood with vinyl panels glued to the outside. One of the doors has the vinyl peling off and it's just starting to affect the wood.
I was thinking that I could remove the failing, damaged vinyl, repair the wood damage (if any) and glue another vinyl piece to the door and get another year or two out of it.
But I can't find out where to purchase 1/16" or 1/32" thick PVC exterior vinyl. I'd like to glue it on and flush cut it to the door with a router.
If I can't find the vinyl, I'll make the wood repairs and just paint the wood with several coats of a marine paint my dad calls "the good stuff".
Anyone else have this problem? At this time, replacing the door is out of the question from a financial standpoint. I'm just trying to buy him some time and have it look decent.
Thanks in advance!
