Andersen Sliding Door


I have installed a new Andersen 400 series sliding door to a newly framed wall and noticed that with the nailing fins attached to the exterior 3/4 inch plywood sheathing, the interior of the door frame is flush with the wall studs not the drywall. Have I done something wrong? Do the nailing fines attach to the studs and then the plywood sheathing goes over them? I'm guessing I can use creative moulding to cover the difference between the door frame and drywall. Any suggestions?

Most exterior plywood applications are only 7/16 or 1/2. All you need to do is add a jamb extension.

whoda thunk it? -=chuckle=-
you installed it right, not your fault. but that's what i did to deal with the exact same thing, 6" walls + 3/4" PLYWOOD, + 1/2" drywall = custom moulding for me. =o)
but i'm creating all my own moulding/trim/jambs, etc. from walnut anyways, so it's just another step for me and my handy-dandy saws.

Correct. you installed the door correctly. like the mouse stated 3/4" sheathing was on the house. Now you must install a 1/2" build out around the door frame. make sure you do not cover the top parting strip that holds the door in. and try and keep the sides the same distance away as you did the top. this will give the door the same reveal all away around the frame. plus no nails will go through the weather striping.
Good call guys. BOB
