Peachtree Exterior Door installation


I'm wondering if anyone has experience (good or bad), with Peachtree's Exterior Door (with sidelights) sold by Menards, either steel or fiberglass.

If you go with the vinyl clad exterior/PVC brickmould, what is the best way to fasten through the jamb?

Can't say I have installed one. Install would be through the jambs/hinges with brickmould on it.

Don't forget the shims. Just ram some 21/2" deck or drywall screws through a hinge-hole into the trimmers x 3 hinges plus 3 on the latch side (6 screws total) then caulk & paint or putty and stain.
