    So the kid slammed the door because he was mad because I was taking too long o make dinner due to being violently ill. (He’s on the autism spectrum.) When he slammed the door it cracked then he tried to close it and it ended up falling off the hinge and cracking. I’m pretty much useless when it...

    Good afternoon folks! I'm want to order some interior doors and had planned to get pre-hung. The walls are pre-1970 2x4's (3-5/8" lumber) with 1/2" drywall on each side, for a total wall thickness of 4-5/8". All the non-custom pre-hung doors I'm finding have 4-9/16" jambs. I assume the extra...

    Hello everyone, My first posting here on DIYchatroom. I plan to install a stormdoor The width of my main door is 31.5 and got myself a 32X80 emco 400 series because the door handle is quite large. As you can see in the image, the metal jamb does not have any trim, My questions are: how do I...

    House constructed by small town builder Sept 2015. Front door just wasn't sitting well within the frame - builder originally stated that the strike plate just needed to be adjusted. Builder finally did some work on the hinge side (I was not there for the service call), but that caused the handle...

    We have a 32" doorway that we'd like to trim. I was wondering if there is a product that has all of the components as a single unit? So the jamb and the casings would be a single unit. My vision is the piece would 'slide' on like a cap. If not, any suggestions for kits for the jambs and...

    Hi there, I have some windows installed in my basement that look like this: http://i.imgur.com/MvRgJjA.jpg I have finished drywalling, and painting. But i'm not sure what to do with the window sill. Do I put drywall there? Or a jamb? Or something else? And what do I do with the edge that is...

    Rough opening for a door means the opening framed out and no jamb in place yet right? What is the rough opening of a 28" solid core door? Would the jamb for said door be 3/4" thick? What are the measurements of a 28" solid core door? Thanks a bunch.

    Hi, Our spec calls for interior doors to be Simpson or approved equivalent. We are getting molded mdf solid core doors, and the Simpson doors (which are actually millenium doors with the simpson label, as I understand it), call for 5/4 jambs. It looks like my doors were framed for 3/4 jambs...

    Hi, Our spec calls for interior doors to be Simpson or approved equivalent. We are getting molded mdf solid core doors, and the Simpson doors (which are actually millenium doors with the simpson label, as I understand it), call for 5/4 jambs. Is this the size jamb that is typical? It looks like...

    My house was built using 3/8" drywall, both inside and as sheathing. The rough opening appears to be able to accommodate a standard pre-hung door, which I've already purchased on sale. The problem is that standard jamb widths are 4 9/16". The door jamb will have roughly a 1/4" to 5/16" overhang...
  11. Remodeling
    I bought an older house last year and were slowly remodeling it. We have block walls with no insulation which I understand is common. I'm going to remove exterior walls to insulate. If I leave the furring strips on the walls I can only use roughly 1" foam board which isn't really enough...

    I am interested in replacing some doors in my 90 year old house. I am really at the very beginning of the planning process and I would like advice on whether I should consider removing the jamb altogether and installing pre hung doors or try to fit doors into the existing jambs. I haven't...

    I am ready to install a window jamb into my basement window now that I have the sheetrock finished. I am having an issue though where the distance from the window to the sheetrock varies around the frame, anywhere from 8" to 8 1/2". I want the jamb to be flush with the sheetrock, so how is this...
