How do I go about installing a pre hung exterior door?


Answer by  oddflash (902)

Remove old door, frame and facing. Slide new frame into place. Check for plumb and squareness, place shims behind frame to plumb it. Fasten with finish nails and caulk outside.

First, remove the door that will be replaced. The new door should match the old in configuration for easy installation. Unscrew the screws holding in the hinges of the old door, remove it, then attach the new hinges in exactly the opposite process.

Remove existing door and frame down to the rough opening. Place the door into opening. Put in the bottom first with the top facing outward, tilt the door into place.

Take out old door (if there is one) and install new door. Make sure the new door is leveled and screw into place

It's really pretty easy. You just need to make sure that the door is going to fit in the frame or you're in big trouble.
