That treatment has a good price. The blue stuff under the windows here is Henry's bluskin or simular

Yes, you do need to add flashing around that door sill. It will keep the water out.

SO Yesterday I took it all fixed it all up really well. Today I set the door in and it was great just a little warping int he frame but I was going to straight that out no problem.... That was UNTIL my wife. First she noticed this was the "old" style of window blind control with 2 levers instead of the 1 we had been promised. I got her to accept that after some grumbling... THEN she tried them and the internal blinds on the fixed door don't work... I can't believe my luck. I'm going to call Minnkota Monday but I'm so ticked. I've done the 2 clicks it should work thing but it doesn't... THe sliding door works just fine. Thankfully I just set it in before I applied caulk behind it... If I didn't have bad luck I'd certainly have no luck with this dang house.

10/11: Bought the perfect house, 11/12: 10k & 200 hours,08/13: 30k & 400 hours into the perfect house, 12/13: 35k & 500 hours,02/14: 37k & 550 hours, 08/14: 38k & 650 hours
05/15: 40k & 700 hours and I think it's done, Home appraised +40k!!! 1 to 1 ratio achieved!
03/16: Filed small claims court on contractor for siding + all of previous
