New Sliding Glass Door - Lots of Caulk?

7 years ago

Hi All,

Just got a new Provia Fiberglass slider installed. Cost, including installation, was around $3k. Door looks great, inside is clean and seamless, but the outside is a little more sloppy than I am accustomed - lots of caulk. However, I've never had an exterior door replaced so not sure if this is typical or not. The door is installed on a concrete slab. Excuse the dirt and water from the kids. Thoughts?

Door installed

Lots of caulk at the base of the door.

Top of door looking east. The closest corner has caulk filing what I imagine is some type of hole/gap in the siding/flashing.

Top of door looking west.

Some fingerprints or other imperfections in the caulk - perhaps I'm being nit picky.
