Installing a Steel Front Entry Door

Expanding on the previous article, "Installing a Steel Entry Door for Home Improvement and Security", it is important to consider various factors before starting this project. Whether you are an experienced installer or attempting it for the first time, following the steps below will ensure a successful installation and enhance the value and security of your home.

Step 1: Removal of the old door

To begin, locate the door hinges and release the hinge-pins holding them. Typically, there are three hinges that need to be addressed. Use a hammer and nail-set to tap the bottom of each hinge-pin in an upward motion. Once the hinge-pin starts to move up, remove it and seek assistance in setting aside the old door. Proceed by removing the old door jamb.

Step 2: Setting up the new door jamb

Place the new door jamb in the entryway. Some steel front entry doors come with a split jamb, which needs to be separated since one part will be inside and the other outside. Follow the instructions provided for jamb assembly. Once the steel front entry door jambs are set in the entryway, move on to the next step.

Step 3: Centering and leveling the jamb

Ensure that the steel front entry door jamb is centered in the opening of the entryway. Use shims between the wall studs and the new door jambs, aligning them properly and ensuring they are level. Once everything is centered and leveled correctly, proceed to drive nails through the predrilled holes in the jamb, shims, and into the wall studs. It is advisable to secure one side first before proceeding to the other side.

Step 4: Plumbing the jamb

Before completely securing the jamb, ensure it is plumbed and properly leveled from side to side and top to bottom. Once you have securely fastened the jamb using the appropriate nails and shims, recheck your work to ensure everything is level and correctly measured.

Step 5: Installing the new steel front entry door

Prior to installing the new steel front entry door, use 3-inch deck screws to secure the jamb side of the hinges to the jamb. Repeat this process for all three hinges. Once this is done, you are ready to re-hinge the new steel front entry door, completing the installation.

It is essential to exercise caution when removing and installing the steel front entry door jambs, as improper installation can potentially create problems, especially in older homes. Taking the necessary care and following the provided steps will ensure a successful installation, adding value and security to your home.

By carefully considering each of these steps and ensuring their proper execution, you can confidently undertake the installation of a new steel entry door. This home improvement project not only increases the value of your property but also provides enhanced security for your home. Take your time, follow the instructions, and enjoy the benefits of a well-installed steel entry door.
