SOLID CORE: Refers to a door that is solid throughout. Solid core doors are more expensive and much heavier. They provide a sturdier feeling door that will also deaden noise better throughout the home.

1-3/4" DOOR: Refers to the thickness of the door. 1-3/4" is the standard size for an exterior door. These doors are thicker to help provide a sturdier door for security purposes and a higher insulation value. Some people will occasionally use this size for interior doors.

Door Width

DOOR WIDTH: Refers to the width of the door. Doors are measured in "feet" followed by "inches." Thus a 36 inch door would be refered to as a 3/0. Another example is a 28" door would be refered to as a 2/4.

Example: 24" = 2/0

Example: 28" = 2/4

Jamb Size

Door Jambs

Jamb Size: Refers to the width of the support frame used to make a pre-hung door unit. The standard jamb size is 4-9/16". This would be used on walls framed with 2x4 lumber and 1/2" sheetrock on both side of the wall.

*IMPORTANT: Some homes are framed using 2x6 lumber for thicker walls for better insolation values. In that case you would most likely need a 6-9/16" jamb on your pre-hung door. Some walls also covered with thicker or thinner sheetrock which can also change the size of the door jamb you need. Please be sure to measure the thickness of the wall before ordering your door.

Example: 2x4 Wall (3-1/2") + 1/2" sheetrock x 2 sides= 4-9/16"

Clear: Refers to moulding that is made from one solid piece of wood. This moulding is more expensive, but is ideal if you are going to stain the trim.

Finger-Joint: Refers to moulding that is joined together from small pieces. This type of moulding is primed white for painting and is less expensive than clear pine. If you are going to paint your mouldings this is the one you want to use.

Door Handing

Help

Door Handing can be confusing, so it is extremely important to determine the correct handing to avoid mistakes. To determine the handing of an interior door, get on the side of the door where the hinges are visible. This will also be the side of the door that you pull, not push, in order to open the door. Now look at the door and determine which side of the door is the knob on? Right or Left? Whichever side the knob is on is the handing of the door. Thus if the knob is on the right hand side it would be a right hand door unit.

*IMPORTANT: Not everyone uses the same system. Be sure the system you or your builder users matches with our system.
