On my shop I have two doors that are going to be roll up doors and one that is basically a sliding barn door. I got rollers for the sliding door that "dangle" or allow me to pull the door away from the building at and angle so that I could put weather stripping on the door to make it seal. I got the door up, painted everything 2 days ago, and my pull clasp type latches came in yesterday so this morning I went out to install the latches and weatherstrip. I put the weatherstrip on the door frame, and then installed the latches. When I undid the latches to re-open the door the door would not budge. I tried pushing it from the inside and pulling from the outside. After about 20 min with a pry bar and hammer I managed to free the door. The brand new weather strip which I just spent about 50 bucks on is trashed. half stuck to the frame and half to the door. I just cant believe how stong the bond was, it was almost like double sided tape. I immediatly called the manufacture's number on the package and explained what had happened. The rep told me that the paint should have been allowed to dry atleast 3 weeks. I was kinda pissed that they package didnt say anything about this, but figured I wouldnt be able to get anything out of them for it. The rep then asked me if I wanted a replacment, took my name and address, and said she would get a replacment out to me. While I think the packaging should have said something about fresh paint, I think this company has great customer service and obviously stands behind their products.
