Pre-built doors ship as specified in the product description. Your order is finalized as soon as you submit. For pre-built doors, we do not send drawings or other documentation for your approval. Your approval is confirmed at the time of purchase. You are purchasing a product that is not customizable. We describe the product as clearly as possible in the product description. If you have questions about the product specifications, please contact us before purchase. If you wish to order a door that varies from the product specifications stated in the description, consider ordering one of our customizable doors.
If you are interested in customizing this design, you may order one of customizable exterior doors. If you provide us with the details, we can send you a formal bid for an upcoming project. Simply send us a description or an image of the door you want built. Feel free to call or email us to place an order with a sales rep.
Use the information below when choosing a Frame Width and a Frame Height. We sell doors by frame size, the actual door size will be less than the frame size.
For pre-built doors, you may choose from the following frame widths and heights:
When sizing the door you will need to consider two principle measurements, rough opening and frame size. See the image below for reference.
The rough opening is the distance from stud to stud for framing purposes. We advise that you build a rough opening that is ½ in. wider and 1/2 in. taller than the total door unit. We find that this allows for sufficient shimming and adjustments during installation.
Choosing a Wood Species...
For pre-built doors we offer four wood types: Mahogany (Sapele), Walnut, Paint Grade, White Oak. If you would like a greater range of wood types to choose from, you will need to order a customized exterior door.
As you decide which wood you'll choose, the most important factor is how the wood species goes with the overall design of the door and your project. If you have specific questions about what wood to choose that are not answered here, feel free to reach out to us.
Our Wood Selection for Pre-built
Jamb depth depends on the thickness of the walls into which the door unit will be placed. For pre-built exterior pivot doors, we offer three jamb depths: 4 5/8 in., 5 1/2 in., and 6 5/8 in. Usually the jamb is flush with the interior and exterior wall covering, with the seam covered by casing.
Available Jamb Depths*
*You will need to order from our Customizable line if you need a different jamb depth from what is available above.
All pre-built doors come with a choice of a black or grey aluminum threshold.
Black (Dark Bronze Anodized)
Grey (Mill Finish Aluminum)
All pre-built doors come with a Type 2 threshold. Type 2 thresholds are suitable when there is any type of wood covering on the interior of the house. The Type 2 threshold has a 90 degree angle on the interior facing side for the wood or tile covering to butt up against.
If the exterior floor is the same level as the interior floor, you will need a Type 1 threshold (available with our Customizable line). More commonly, though, the exterior floor is lower than the interior floor and you will need a type 2 threshold.
Standard Handle Prep
When you order your pivot-hung entryway, you have options when it comes to how the door will swing. Because 99% of the time, you will want a door that swings into the interior (in-swing), our pre-built line only comes as an in-swing.
When it comes to right-hand or left-hand swing, the layout of your installation site will determine the swing configuration. To determine if the door is left-hand or right-hand in-swing, imagine you are looking at the door from the street. If the pivot point is on the left side, it is a left-hand in-swing. If the pivot point is on the right-hand side, the door is a right-hand in-swing.
Diagram of Potential Configurations
Swing configuration defines the direction of the door motion and from which side the pivot is placed
Our standard pivot hardware is a durable, specially engineered free-swing pivot hinge. This pivot hardware works for a wide range of doors, from small to very large. No matter the door size, the free-swing pivot hinge allows for effortless door operation. The hardware incorporates sets of ball-bearings for smooth, long-lasting performance. The door swings freely around the pivot point. There are no springs or tension pulling the door closed.
The pivot placement is the distance the pivot pin will be placed away from the vertical edge of the rough opening. Pre-built doors have set pivot placements.
43 1/2 in. Frame Width comes with a 4 in. pivot placement, allowing for a pass through of 36 5/16 in.
49 1/2 in. Frame Width comes with a 8 in. pivot placement, allowing for a pass through of 38 5/16 in.
You have the option of having a clear glass or frosted white glass.
In many cases, customers wish to purchase sidelights for their door units. We build sidelights directly into the door unit, so the jamb and sidelights connect seamlessly. All you need to do is tell us what kind of sidelights you want, what size they should be and what kind of glass you want.
With pre-built doors, you can choose between three sidelight configurations:
- Right Sidelight
- Left Sidelight
- Double Sidelight
Sidelight placement is specified with reference to the exterior view. If you want a 12" sidelight that is on the right side when viewed from the exterior, click on the dropdown options under "Right Sidelight" and select the option: 12" right sidelight. If you want a double sidelight, simply a size under both the the Right Sidelight and Left Sidelight options. Double sidelights can be of different sizes.
You have a choice of four sizes (6”, 12”, 18”, 24”) when ordering a sidelight with a pre-built door. The door will be built with the sidelight attached so the height of the door and the height of the sidelight will be the same.
Example: A door that is 49 1/2" x 97" with a 12" x 97" right sidelight will get you a door and sidelight combo that measures 61 1/2" x 97" (the rough opening size should be somewhere around 62" X 97 1/2").
