How to be a proper exterior door installer in lakeside, CA and Greater San Diego
You should start by removing door from the hinges then the interior trim and exterior trim to expose the door frame. I would then just cut the frame out using a reciprocating saw and discard appropriately. Once that is out of the way go ahead and sit the frame in the opening and shim up as needed, start with the hinge side and shim until the spacing is somewhat even on both sides. Using a 6′ level shim top and bottom hinge side few inches above top hinge and the same for the bottom. Then shim out the middle and then the opposite side always checking for plum. Install door on frame and install trim on both sides inside and out. Quick Step Guide to Exterior Door Installer: A. Remove old door and frame. B. Place new frame in opening and shim up as needed. C. Shim out top and sides of frame D. Install door and trim both inside and out. I believe that anyone can install an exterior door it just the matter of how long it might take. Some of these types of doors can be bulky and heavy so an extra set of hands makes things much easier and sometimes safer. Also a 6′ level is a must to make sure the jamb stays plum throughout the shimming process. If all else fails you can call me I am an Exterior Door Installer in Lakeside, CA and Greater San Diego.
