I rent a home with an antique front door on the west side of the house. It has several pieces of wood going across and down. There is an oval insert of glass. The door was drafty but otherwise fine, until the house across the street was torn down, which blocked the setting sun. It now hits the door, and the living room jumps 10 degrees in the afternoons. My problem is, the door started expanding and contracting so much it started to fall apart, and the glass broke, trim broke and fell off. My landlady does not believe me when I told her the door is falling apart due to the house across the street being torn down. Can anyone confirm that this is possible?

sure I do confirm it is possible. why not. Want a piece of advise? give her a modern one, she will be glad. My friend bought something from milanodoors. A wide range of models. Good quality. Modern is much more appropriate these days!
