Forum Title: Raising a threshold
Is there any reason I shouldn't put a PT 1x6 under the threshold of a new swing door in a concrete-floored garage? Other than the obvious trip-hazard? The idea is to raise the lightly-primed wood frame of the new steel door above water that tends to end up there after storms.

What Chandler said, but use a composite board(all man made-vinyl and/or plastic). Azek trim comes to mind. Won't rot, warp, etc.

I was thinking of a cellular PVC trim board but I was wondering if it would compress or collapse. I've seen some in the stores with dents. Composite deck planks are too thick. I like the look of the 5/4 decking planks because of the radius, and that's what I was considering. Treated with a CPES product like Rot Doctor, then painted.
