Tips For Installing a Door in Ajo Pantry Cabinets
Pantry cabinets are actually quite common in homes and do not require much maintenance. The only thing you really need to keep it up is the regular sweep with a broom or dust pan. It is also wise to have a box of suitable foods stored underneath the pantry cabinet for quick access.
Some of the most common types of pantry cabinets are ones that are fully insulated, which is particularly good if you want the cool air to flow into your house. But these types of pantry cabinets are expensive. One can get a cheap one by installing a door in the pantry and placing insulation in the interior.
As a matter of fact, there are several considerations before you install a door to your attic pantry. First is that it should be constructed of metal. If you install it in a metal attic, you will be able to heat up the walls inside the pantry. Because the metal can be heated up, the air that goes into the house can be heated as well.
Second, you need to consider the interiors of the interior walls. For that, you need to seal the walls with an acrylic membrane on the interior.
Third, you should use a drywall on the interior surface of the wall. It will keep the moisture out of the attic, thus reducing condensation. Also, it will keep the moisture out of the walls to the extent that the humidity is kept down.
Fourth, you must use insulation on the interior of the walls and then remove it before you install the door on the interior. For the interior part of the doors, it is better to use metal strips. Install a simple sealer over the metal strips so that no water gets through.
The last thing you should do before you install a door on the interior of the pantry cabinet is to add flashing to the exterior surface of the door. To make it easier for you, you can buy a galvanized hardware kit from a hardware store. You can even find a kit that has rust-proof hardware, if you want to avoid the rust from touching the door.
It is possible that the last thing you have to do is to add some sort of protective cover on the interior of the door. A typical door would include a plastic or metal cover. You can use this to protect your roof from the rain.
