30" prehung door


Could someone tell me what the rough opening would be for a prehung 30" closet/pantry door?

Thanks

With any door you add 2" to the width and 2-1/2" to the height.

joe's right, just make sure teh jamb stock is 5/8 material and the jack studs are plumb. if the jamb stock is thicker make the rough opening 2 1/2" larger than the door

Jambs in the US are all 3/4" not 5/8.
