When choosing the model and material for your exterior door, you probably took time to understand your needs. Like what style of exterior door suits the architecture of your house, the climate you live in and if also the maintenance is a factor into your decision.

Here’s a tip on how to install a pre-hung door. First, lift the door into place, then be sure it’s plumb. Always use your level on the hinge side. Nail through the casing and remove the factory clips, so you can test the swing of the door. Then shim the door with scrap shingles along the hinge side and secure the jamb. Now you’re ready to put your finish moldings in place.
When installing a new door, use shim shingles as extra support between the jack studs and the door jamb. Use two cedar shingles, one vertically and one horizontally, adjusting until they fit snugly. Use three sets of shims on each side—one on top, one on the bottom, and one in the middle. Use three screws to fasten the door jambs to the frame.
If you are hanging double doors you have to make sure they meet in the middle. After hanging each door, check to see how they come together. It’s seldom perfect the first time. If they overlap by more than one-eighth of an inch, you’ll need to plane some off both doors. For smaller overlaps, only one door needs to be planed and sanded until you get a perfect fit.
