Building A New House
Apr 13, 2019 5:00 pm
I am currently building a house and they installed the cavity sliding doors. First of all these doors were installed and then they were removed as they installed the incorrect ones (As we ordered push to pull cavity doors)
They have removed and replaced, but have noticed big gaps between the cavity door and the house frame.
Does this look right to you?
Site supervisor says it is fine, but would like another opinion.

That's the problem with replacing doors frame etc as the replacement may never fit properly.
In this case the constant opening and closing of the door may pull out the fixing nail and come loose
best to use packers and screws

I just found the installation guide from the manufacturer that states packers should be used, so I will be organising a site meeting with the supervisor.
Thank you all for your feedback

And yes, if you still want to use MLV, best way will be to cover the full section of the pocket wall between gyprock and studs.
