How To Select An Exterior Door For Your Home
At Ring’s End, we want to do more than sell you an exterior door. We want to sell you the right door for your home – right for how you live, and right for where you live. This commitment means helping you evaluate the options available on our premium door lines so your door fits your lifestyle, your home’s architecture, and your budget.
Choosing exterior doors involves factors beyond selecting the type that best suits your taste and your home style. Will the door be exposed to harsh weather conditions? Will it provide adequate protection for your property? Is there enough interior space for an inswing door to function comfortably? Will the door get lots of daily use? With patio doors, do you want an unobstructed view or are there privacy concerns? What about energy efficiency and UV ray reduction? Do
We’ll help you answer these questions so that the door you select has materials and features exactly suited to your needs. We can even handle the entire project for you; our expert can perform on-site measurements and install your new perfect door.
How to Measure the Door Size You Need
When you're looking for your door's size, you’ll need to measure three things: the height, the width, and another important element called the doorjamb.
Your door’s jamb size is measured as the width of the door frame from back to front from where it meets your home’s wall stud. As always, our door installation experts can assist with these measurements either remotely or on-site.
To measure these aspects, take a tape measure and:
- Measure your doorway’s jamb. The easiest way to do this is to measure the edged edge difference of one of your doorframe’s sides.
- Measure your doorway’s vertical opening from the floor to the top of the doorjamb.
- Then measure your doorway’s width horizontally three times. User tape measure near the top, in the middle, and once near the bottom. If all three of the measurements vary, choose the shortest distance when selecting a door for a precise fit
