Pre hung door sizes and quality
My home has Masonite pre hung interior doors. I bought a couple matching Masonite doors that matched the style and noticed some variations in quality compared to the ones installed by the builder:

- quality of mortise work for hinges had noticeable gaps compared to tight fits in the rest of the house

- 1/2 gap at top of doors between top jamb compared to 1/4"

- door sizes measure full 32" compared to 31 7/8" yet the frame size is still the same leaving very little play for the reveal and a nightmare of anything settles

Do retailers like Home Depot get a lower quality consumer grade version of these doors compared to what contractors can purchase at distributors?
