replacement entry door


Quick questions...

I need to replace a 32"W x 80"H entry door, when you buy an entry door does this include the threshold / sill usually? or do I have to keep the one that is there?

also could I transport a door like this in a larger car's trunk? I have a pontiac GP and have transported 2x4's and 8' holding with no problem, could I fit one of these in a trunk? I have the fold down back seats which gives me length, and I think I have the width (its just under 4' wide opening) or should I get the truck for one of these also?

thanks!

Pre-hung doors come with a threshold.

There’s a few different options to choose from, the box stores won’t tell you about.

Would hate to see you damage your new door. Delivery is cheap if not free.

You might look like a goofball, but some blankets and straps should get it there safely... Just double-check the measurements on the trunk opening.
