 How to take measurements for a replacement door

 



Measure the frame - not the existing door

Measure the width at the top, middle and the bottom of the frame.
They will probably be different sizes.
Order the door to the larger size minus 2mm on each side for clearance.
 It can then be  planed to shape.

Measure from the top of the frame to the point where the door will
 clear the carpet or floor covering

Measure the height on both sides.
Frames are quite often out of square so they will probably be different sizes.
Order the door to the larger size so it can be planed to shape.

Measure the rebate of the frame to establish the  thickness of door required.
Sometimes the rebate is formed with door stop.
This can often be removed and  adjusted to accommodate a different thickness door.

For bespoke doors you may also  include the midrail height from the bottom of the door

 

How to measure glazing for doors

The glass is usually held in place with timber beading or putty

Measure where the beading or putty meets the frame.
This is the tight size.

Measure the width at the top and the bottom.

Measure the height on both sides.

They may  be different sizes.
Order the glass to the smaller tight size minus 1/8" (3mm)
 for clearance.
