Exterior doors feature prominently in the facade of a home. Although we recommended you call upon a professional to install your exterior door, you may decide to do the job yourself. Be sure to take time to do it properly, and follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions. A poorly-installed door will be less energy-efficient and mechanisms will eventually break down.
This guide outlines the steps to follow to successfully install an exterior door. A door is very heavy, so this should be a two-person job.
