How To Measure For A New or Replacement Door

Here is what to measure for a new or replacement door if you’re keeping the same doorjamb: (taken from Masonite Doors)


1. Open the door and carefully measure the width and height of the door slab.
    This is the net door size

2. Hinges: measure from the top of the door down to the top of the first hinge;
    then from the top of the door to the second hinge and so on.

3. Measure the size of each hinge and note if it is square or radius (rounded)
    corners. Standard radius corners are 5/8” or 1/4”.

4. Measure for the lock bore location(s) from the top of the door to the center
    of the bore(s). Important: Be sure to measure to the center of the lock bore.

5. Measure the size (diameter) of the bore hole(s) to the nearest 1/8”.
    Standard bore hole size is 2-1/8”.

6. Measure the distance from the edge of the door to the center of the lock
    bore — the “backset” of the lock. Standard measurements are 2-3/8” or 2-3/4”.

7. The last step is to determine the “handing” of the door. The procedure is
    simple. Open the door and stand inside the doorjamb (door frame) with your
    back against the hinges. If the door opens to the right, it is a “right hand
    swing”. If the door opens to the left, it is a “left hand swing”. For a detailed
    explanation on how to determine handing, speak with one of our sales

8. As you measure the doorframe in various places across the width and height,
    make a note of any discrepancies in the measurements; they’ll help when
    fitting the new door.


Understanding your Door or Window Project:


Weatherford Door and Window offering window products by Jeld-Wen Windows and DoorsTotal window replacement or insert
Any time you have the option of doing a total window replacement then you should. If a total window replacement is not practical, an alternative is to remove the existing window, except for the original frame, and then insert a smaller window in the opening. Doing an insert is great but the insulation barrier behind the existing frame is subject to failure. You don't know what is “back there” to protect your home from air infiltration. So if you choose the insert window route, make sure you check behind the old frame for proper insulation. If you choose the total replacement (or new construction method) you'll be stripped down to the jack studs. So you know there will be sufficient insulation around the frame. This will also set you up for proper flashing around each window.

Sooner or later, every door needs minor repair or repainting. But installing new exterior doors makes sense for other reasons. Its no wonder, four out of five homeowners include new doors when they decorate or remodel. A new door does more than fulfill its promise of appearance and reliability; its value repays when the time comes to sell your home. If your door is poorly fitted, drafts can enter the room through gaps at the bottom or sides. It is not just uncomfortable it’s unhealthy for your family. Entry doors are more accurately described as an Entry Door Systems. In order to take advantage of recent advances in energy efficiency and security, we recommend that both the door and frame be replaced as a unit. If a total replacement is not practical, a door only replacement may be in order if the door jamb (the frame in which the door fits) is in good condition.


Architectural Style: Architects and general contractors generally can provide good advice on the types of windows and doors that will be appropriate for the rooms you're remodeling or adding. Weatherford Door & Window can also be a great resource and guide.

Tip: Be sure to take into consideration your home's architectural style and the current door and window styles used in the rest of your home. You'll get the most return on your investment and curb appeal by maintaining the architectural style of your home.


Material Choices


Exterior Doors: Steel, wood, fiberglass or clad

Exterior DoorsSteel: Steel doors are strong, durable and economical. Flush doors and a wide variety of panel designs are available. In addition, clear or decorative glass inserts can be installed. Steel door limited warranties typically range from 1 to 15 years depending on construction. Steel doors are almost always painted.

Wood: Wood doors vary tremendously in size, shape, specie, construction and price. Wood doors must be specified to meet the particular application. They can be stained or painted. Most wood doors require periodic maintenance for prolonged life.


Fiberglass: Fiberglass doors offer durability, low maintenance and additional finishing features. They won’t dent or rust and they resist splitting, cracking and warping. Clear or decorative glass inserts can be used. Fiberglass doors come with a smooth or textured wood-grain surface. The smooth surface can be painted and the textured surface is great for staining to achieve an authentic wood look. Limited warranties typically range from 20 years to limited lifetime.


Interior Doors:


Interior DoorsWood Panel (stile and rail) door designs typically range from 1 to 6 raised or flat panels. Stiles (vertical) and rails (horizontal) make up the framework. A variety of substrates exist – softwoods, hardwoods, and composite wood. Wood panel doors can be painted or stained.

Molded doors are usually manufactured with high density wood fiber facings. A wide variety of panel designs are offered. Molded doors are extremely durable and resist cracking, splitting and warping. They also have smooth or textured wood-grain surfaces that come primed and ready for painting or decorating. Traditional and contemporary panel designs are available.


Flush doors have a flat surface and no panels; and the facings are made from plywood, hardboard, or MDF (medium density hardboard). Flush doors are typically used where cost is a factor or the architecture or décor is somewhat conventional. A variety of wood species are available for staining; and hardboard or MDF can be painted.



WindowsVinyl requires little or no maintenance. It resists damage from salt air or airborne chemicals and is immune to insects, rotting and weather damage. Our vinyl windows have multi-chamber frames with heavy duty construction that is designed to be strong and provide long lasting performance.

Aluminum windows are made from extruded aluminum sections that are naturally corrosion resistant. Aluminum windows can provide years of trouble free performance and long-lasting durability at an economical price.


Wood windows are naturally warm and rich in appearance. Today, most wood windows are actually wood-clad windows where the exterior of the wood window is covered with vinyl or aluminum cladding to increase weather resistance. This gives the window an elegant interior with a durable, energy efficient and worry free exterior.


Fiberglass windows are the ultimate choice for new construction, remodels and replacement projects. These extremely durable, carefree windows make homes more comfortable and energy efficient, and they can be painted like traditional wood windows. Impervious to water, cold, heat, insects, salt air and ultraviolet rays. Fiberglass also will not crack, peel, bend, warp or stick due to expansion and contraction.
