Mastic Seal ?
« on: April 07, 2018, 03:25:01 pm »
Please could someone advise if there is a reason why the mastic seal around the middle hinge of the door shown in the picture sticks out compared to around the top hinge?

Thanks in advance.

The door or brickwork opening is not straight or plumb.
There is more room from the hinge to the wall so mastic can be "tooled" at the top hinge.
