Exterior Doors

Entry Door System - Dallas Texas

An inexpensive way to add comfort and security to your home. Home Depot and Lowe's have several choices in stock that are inexpensive and will serve quite well. If you can find one that you like at one of those locales, buy it, bring it home and call us. That is the easiest way to have a new door installed this week.

For your Exterior Doors we want to see a fully pre-hung door. That is a door with Jambs, threshold, and weatherstripping all built in one unit that is ready to hang. They run from $125 up into the thousands depending on the type of material and the type of glass utilized.

Most doors are hung on a 4 9/16" jamb, but 5 1/4", and 6 5/8" jambs are also used on occasion. They come pre-drilled for deadbolt and door knob, with hinges included, but no hardware as far as handles and locks. Make sure to get new locks for your new door. There will also probably be some materials necessary to complete the install. We can provide you a materials list or bring standard materials with us at the time of your install. Most doors will require new interior casing, and either parting stop or other wood to full in the gaps on the exterior. More often than not this is only $40 to $50.

Most front doors are 36" wide, most back doors are 32" wide. The door units themselves are 81 1/2" tall with jambs and threshold. Most doors will require new interior casing, and either parting stop or other wood to full in the gaps on the exterior. More often than not this is only $40 to $50.

Door hinging is easiest to remember this way. If your back is up against the hinges, the arm that is up against the door will be the handing code. That is if your back is against the hinges and your right hand is up against the door it is a right hand door, and vise-versa. This is important in ordering as they cannot be reversed.

Our goal is to install all of your home improvements. Making sure you can find the most economical choices in quality home improvements is the underlying mission in everything we do at The Window Connection.
