How to measure for a storm door?
Whether you are getting a storm door frame replacement or a total storm door replacement, the first thing you always need to do is gather accurate measurements. You can figure out how to measure a door for replacement by following the three simple steps below.
The first step for taking storm door measurements is to measure the height of the door.
You need to place your measuring tape in the center of the door.
Go from the door sill itself at the bottom, all the way up to the trim at the top of the door.
Next, you will need to measure the width of the door.
You are going to take this measurement in two separate places.
The first place is at the top of the door. The second is towards the bottom.
For each of these measurements, start by measuring from the trim on the left side of the door and go all the way to the right side of the door.
If there are different depths for the trim on your doorway, be sure to measure from the outside trim.
Finally, you need to measure how deep the exterior trim is on the side and the height of the exterior trim at the top of the door frame.
Depending on the storm door replacement you choose you might need to know the door handle clearance.
How to measure for a screen door?
Follow these three easy steps if you are looking for a screen door replacement and figuring out how to measure a door for replacement.
You can start taking screen door measurements by first measuring the width.
Measure from the edge of the trim on the left side of your door to the edge of the trim on the right side of your door.
You will repeat this process three times for the top, middle, and bottom of your door.
If you find variation between the three measurements, then be sure to use the largest as your number for width.
Next, measure the height of your door.
On the left side of your door, measure from the door sill at the bottom up to the edge of the trim at the top.
Repeat this process for the right side of your door. Take the measurement that has the most height as your number for the height of your door.
Finally, measure how deep your trim is on the side of your door and the height of the trim at the top.
How to measure for a prehung door?
Prehung door measurements can be trickier than other doors. However, the following four steps will make the process quick and straightforward.
To measure for a prehung door, you need first to pry off the interior door trim using a putty knife. This trim hides the door frame, which is what you must get a measurement of. This is called the rough opening.
After this, take three measurements of the width of the newly exposed door frame. First, across 3 times from the top, middle, and bottom of door.
Measure to the newly exposed door frame.
Finally, take 2 vertical measurements for the height, starting from the left side to the right side.
Make a note of the smallest size.
Now measure the thickness. Open the door and measure the thickness.
If you want to replace the door + the frame, measure with the frame.
Now you have the width, height, and thickness to replace your prehung door!
How to Measure a Door For Replacement Tips
- Watch for the door swing. Find out if your door has left or right-handed swing to determine if it opens inward or outward. To figure this out, open the door and turn your back to the door hinges. If your door opens on your right, the swing is right-handed and vise versa.
- Climate can change your door measurements! The frame and door can contract and expand. Warm weather causes expansion, whereas cold weather causes contraction.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Can I replace an exterior door without replacing the frame?
Yes, homeowners can replace an exterior door without removing the frame. However, this is only true as long as the frame (also called a door jamb) is still in working condition.
Most importantly, we do not recommend replacing a door without replacing the frame because many potential issues can arise. Moreover, the cost difference to have the frame included is minimal.
How to measure for a door replacement?
Green T Services offers consultations and measurements by experts on our team to ensure the perfect fit for a new exterior door. We come right to customers’ homes and measure their door, door frame/door jamb, and make sure that their new door will be exactly what they are looking for.
How much does it cost to replace an exterior door?
Costs to replace an exterior door vary as much as exterior doors themselves.
For instance, depending on the size, sidelites, transoms, materials, and styles, amongst other factors customers decide on, the cost of replacing an exterior door can vary between $1,200 and $12,000.
That is why our expert team will come to clients’ homes, assess their needs and desires for an exterior door, and provide them with a free estimate.
How long does it take to replace an exterior door?
Variance in door sizes, types, frames, and time of year for the service will determine the exact time it takes to replace a home’s exterior door. In short, the total time from the first request for an estimate until the service’s completion can range between two and twelve weeks.
However, removal of an existing exterior door and replacement with the new one will be completed by an insured professional on our team in under one business day.

From start to finish the carpet cleaning job was everything and more than what was expected. The quick response and over the phone quote was very specific and task oriented to make sure all information was accurate.
I feel SO fortunate to have discovered Green T Services and learn the variety of services they provide. Recently, Brian G. (who turned out to be much more than a handyman), successfully completed a couple projects at my home. Brian's knowledge, efficiency, and professionalism, in addition to his friendliness and patience with me watching him and asking lots of questions was fantastic. Even with his attention to detail, he completed the work in the estimated amount of time and cost. I am now making a list of other needed work I will certainly call Green T for assistance. Thanks Brian!
Brian performed handyman services for my apartment. He hung up tons of pictures and paintings with lightning speed. His work was immaculate. I was so impressed by his level of professionalism and quality of work. I am so happy I hired Green T Services for this job. Brian did a much better job than I ever could have, and my apartment looks fantastic now. I will be recommending Green T Services to all of my friends and family for every one of their home improvement service needs.
Justin cleaned all our vents, and also cleaned our carpets. He was professional, friendly, and very informative. He told us exactly what he was going to do and how it was going to work, before beginning any work, and afterwards, he was good at telling us what had been better or worse than expected. We very much appreciated the information. He managed our expectations appropriately, letting us know which stains he probably would NOT be able to remove (for example, ones that had been there long enough to set). We would definitely use the company again, and hope to have Justin back if the work was suited to him!
I had Daniel Liscano as my technician today and his service was SUPERB! He was professional, nice, courteous, and went above and beyond to ensure I was a happy customer. I had three different services completed in my house and Daniel did not cut any corners on any of them. He was here all day from 9-5 and he worked very hard alone to clean, sanitize, deodorize, and disinfect my house. From the air duct cleaning, hardwood floor cleaning, and carpet cleaning, Daniel completed an EXCELLENT job! This is something I had been wanting to do for a long time and finally took the time to schedule the appointment and I am really happy I did! I can breath better and my allergies are not bothering me as much already! Thank you Daniel and thank you Green T for delivering on your promise of service and professionalism! It was worth every penny! I will be ordering more services soon!
Danny was the Air Duct Technician who assisted us. He was absolutely phenomenal! Danny was courteous, friendly and explained in detail. He walked me through all the steps, set proper expectation and followed through. I appreciate Danny for going above and beyond. I will use Green T again and I would recommend their service.
