What we need to know before we replace your door

Size: We need to know the height, width and thickness. It's very easy to determine with our easy to follow measuring instructions provided below.

Door type: There are many types of doors. If you don't know what type of door you have, go to our door types page now. We'll wait. If possible, email us a photo of your door or email us a photo of the new door you want.

Final finish: Even though we might not be putting a finish on the door, we'll need to know what kind of finish you ultimately want, so that we can help you select the right door. For example, are you going to paint it? The more we know, the more effectively we can help.

Once we have this information, we can replace your door. If you can't measure your door, we'll gladly come out and take measurements for you. Please note, however, that an extra trip charge will occur.

How to measure your door

First of all, don't worry about being precise. As long as you're close, we'll know what to do.

Step 1: Height
As you can see, the actual height of this door is 80 inches. As long as you're within a half an inch, that's close enough.

Step 2: Width
Just like the height, it doesn't have to be exact. This door is just under 30 inches wide. Just tell us that it's 30 inches and that's close enough.

Step 3: Thickness
Place the tape measure just above the lock and record to the nearest 1/4 of an inch. This door is 1 3/8 inches thick.
