Glue melting and Running Down Steel Door

Previous Next
 
I have a Stanley steel front outside door which has an arched leaded glass panel on top of the door. As this door faces south, it receives a lot of sun and consequently, the glue from the top panel is melting and running down the door. Any recommendations as to forbid this and to clean the door without having to paint it again. This has been occurring for the last five years.

Answer:
The glue that oozing out of the unit is most likely some form of glazing compound used to seal the glass of the unit.
Is there a storm door on this unit? If so, storm doors are normally problematic with steel units as they can cause the space in between the entry door and storm door to be very hot. Normally what we tell customers to try and forbid this from happening is to place a small bead of caulk around the seal. Once the caulk hardens this should assist to forbid some of the oozing.
