Shed door repair

by Henry Moss
(Grayslake, IL)

I purchased a 8 X 10 shed some years ago. I was told after it was put up to make sure I seal doors and paint. My question is can a person purchase a shed door? Even though I sealed and painted the doors, one of the door frames is starting to rot. Do I need to replace the 2 x 4's if I cannot get a door?

Hi Mr Moss,

I'm sorry to hear about the door problem, It's not uncommon. I think what happened as when you painted and sealed the door you could not paint behind the 2x4's and missed a small spot when you sealed painted and water got into that area and sat and rotted that door. Just a hunch, anyway I have a website that offers replacement shed doors it's called These doors are quality built, we use a Dura-temp plywood siding that has a pre-primed face and we use cedar trim. This really helps the longevity of the door. Please visit our site.

Thanks John
