Can I swap a prehung door from one frame to another?
I'm brand new here. I want to do something that I'm getting a strong feeling isn't meant to be done, haha.
I want a new front door. My existing door is a run of the mill standard Home Depot prehung fiberglass door. Its a 36x80 door. The slab itself measure 35.75x79.
I went to HD and measures some of their prehung door slabs. They're all 35.75x79. My thought is, can I buy a prehung door, pull the door off the hinges and drop into into my existing jamb? My initial thought was these HD doors are all mass produced and would all be the same. The measurements I've done seem to suggest this would work, but I can't find any evidence anywhere that supports this as a good idea.
I'm considering just buying a door and trying it, but I thought I'd seek some advice first. I'm decidedly unhandy and play guitar for a living, so doing it myself isn't a great option. I've gotten some quotes on having a door installed and its way out of budget for me at the time, so I'm just trying to see if this is stupid or not, haha.
