Five Steps to a Brand New Door

Learning how to replace a door opens a whole new window of opportunity for a do-ityourselfer. A new door can change the style of a room or brighten up the exterior of a house.
In addition, a new door with a better seal can help prevent drafts and improve heating bills.
There are three types of doors: entry doors, interior doors, and combination storm/screen
doors. The five steps below describe the technique for replacing an entry door. If you can
master replacement of an entry door, replacing most interior doors is actually a simplified
version of that process, as the locks are typically simpler or nonexistent.
Replacement of combination storm/screen doors can follow the same process as that of entry
doors, or it can become more complicated. If you are unsure about the process for installing a
combination storm/screen door, check your manufacturer's information for additional
instructions or speak with a representative of the manufacturer or store that sold you the door.

Remove the old door

To remove the old door, open it and wedge under the outer corner to take weight off the
hinges. Once the door has been removed, set it aside to use as a pattern in trimming the new
door unless it is seriously warped or damaged.

To remove the door, follow one of the two options below.
A popular method for hanging doors is the use of loose-pin hinges. With loose-pin hinges, half
the hinge attaches to the door and the other half to the doorframe. Both halves are held
together by a pin. If this is the type of hinge you're dealing with, remove the pin by tapping it
up and completely pulling it out. Start with the bottom hinge and work your way up. Once the
hinges have been removed, you can take the door off the frame.

In some older homes, a different type of hinge may be used or the pin cannot easily be
removed because it has been covered by layers of paint. In this case, unscrew the hinges from
the doorframe (still working from bottom to top) and remove the door.
