These installation instructions demonstrate the installation of a Marvin door in new wood frame construction using an industry approved water management system. For installation using other construction methods, such as remodeling, replacement, and recessed openings refer to ASTM E2112--07, “Standard Practice for Installation of Exterior Windows, Doors and Skylights,” for installation suggestions. The same information for ASTM E2112 can be found on the ASTM website, www.astm.org. Regional standard practices, environmental conditions, and codes may vary and supersede the procedures contained within. The responsibility for compliance is yours: the installer, inspector, and owner(s).2010--10--2519970479
