Exterior Door Rough Openings


Exterior door rough openings can be confusing to a lot of homeowners. Do you need a little help when fitting a new door to your home? Here’s a rough openings chart for standard size exterior doors. Max T. Value says keep this information in mind when purchasing a new door. And if you’re planning on doing it yourself, these measurements should help to make the installation a bit easier.

Before you purchase, do you have questions about rough openings or fitting a door to an existing frame? Please visit or stop by any Builders Surplus store to speak with one of our friendly and knowledgeable associates. If you’re in the process of building or remodeling, you’ll find a great selection of doors and windows to help you create the home of your dreams. And as Max always says, “When value’s a must, shop Builders Surplus.”

But don’t stop there! In addition to doors and windows, our stores have a great selection of first quality kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities. And shop us for the best selection of decorative moulding and millwork at awesome pricing. Consider updating your home with new hardwood, luxury waterproof vinyl or tile flooring styles. And for the exterior of your home, shop us for vinyl siding, shutters, decking and more. And remember, all products are Max T. Value approved!
