After you have installed Haven, you have the option of weatherizing the unit so that it last many years. We would advise that you take the extra time and resources to do so. Haven has been design to withstand a ton of punishment, but that doesn’t mean the area surrounding Haven will be able to survive years of use, especially in a moisture-heavy environment like a front door threshold.
The primary enemy for Haven and your front door area is Moisture. We need to make sure any gaps in the flooring are filled so no moisture can get into your subfloor. Moisture can cause warping and will degrade the strengths of your flooring. In other words, moisture is very bad.
In addition to protecting your floor and subfloor, we will also walk through protecting your Haven lock itself from excessive moisture and salt (for all you snowbirds).
