    Hi guys, Ive just fitted a new integrated dishwasher and the door got badly damaged in the process!

    I know these have a tendency to swell and wondered if anyone had any tips to try and help to avoid this?

    I had considered pva but would rather ask the experts first.

    Cheers.

    How about cutting out some of the damaged section and fitting some iron-on kitchen edging strip?

    And then maybe seal with a tiny bit of white sealant.

    It would be best to prime the 'wood' with an oil-based wood primer first.
