In reply to installing new ext. door in old house by cduhamel on April 30th, 2002 10:11 PM [Go to top of thread]

Hi Cduhamel
Whenever an exterior door is set in new construction,we set it 3/4" higher than the subfloor.This is to allow for what ever finish floor is to be installed plus room for the door to swing without rubbing a throwrug that might be put on the finish floor.As far as the ext.go with what Ron J.said and don't forget the flashing and a healthy bead of calk under the threshold before you set the door.Luck
