A Guide to Entry Door Installation
The entry door is the first thing a person interacts with when they visit your home and first impressions are everything. A new entry door can help you make a good first impression, insulate your home, and protect your family. This video covers how to execute a proper entry door installation.
There are many different materials you can use for an entry door. One of the most popular is fiberglass. Fiberglass can be stamped to look like real wood, but it comes at a fraction of the cost. The fiberglass is fitted around an insulating foam door that helps maintain energy efficiency in your home.
The first thing you need to do is to remove the old door and door frame. Carefully saw around the borders of the frame. It’s great to have an additional pair of helping hands. Make sure the vertical and horizontal sides of the frame are level for the new one. Remember to measure twice and cut once.
Cut any shims and scribes you need for the new door. Add in adhesive for the door frame. Then set in the new doorframe and door. Make sure everything is flush with the wall on the perimeter of the frame.
