How to Measure Your Door Frame for a Wrought Iron Door
Before purchasing your wrought iron door, you will need to make sure you have the proper measurements in order to ensure that your door fits properly, and will last a long time.
Step one involves removing the door molding that you already have in place. You will want to use a pry bar for this.
Next up, you will need to measure from the bottom of the door’s threshold nose to the bottom of the head jamb. Then, measure from the head jamb to the header of your rough opening. When you have these two measurements you can add them together in order to get your rough opening height.
Next step, measure both sides of the door frame and then use the smallest measurement moving forward. Measure the width of the rough opening (across the top, middle, and bottom) and use the smallest measurement here, as well.
Other things you will want to take into consideration before placing an order for a wrought iron door is whether or not your door swings inwards or outwards, and if the handle is on the left or right.
