Before installing a new door we will take off the old one. We will also add a trim extension if needed to doors with sidelights. We will prime and paint the new trim, position it with a reveal equal to the other trim and then nail it into place.
Storm doors hang from the door trim, technically called “exterior casing.” If the door has never had a storm door, we may have to extend the trim between the door and a sidelight. This is the most difficult situation we are likely to encounter. We have to rip a new trim piece to match the thickness of the other trim (usually 1-1/8 in. thick). If your entry door trim needs paint, we will help. It’s a pain in the neck painting around a new door, and you will have a crisper-looking job.
Manufacturers make storm doors a bit narrower than standard openings to make sure they will fit. If your opening is typical, we will have to “fur out” the sides to center the storm door in the opening. There is always need to install at least one 1/4-in. furring strip (screen molding usually works fine) on the hinge side and possibly even have to add another one to the latch side.
To figure this out, we will have to measure the exact width of the opening, that is, the distance between the inside edges of the trim. To install the door, there is a need to center it on the latch and lock.
These are only few steps toward having a new door installed. Our door service company has professionals dealing with door as this is our speciality, so call us for help. Call us 24/7!
