I can't seem to figure out how to remove the door threshold without having to remove the entire frame. That door looks to be around the wrong way, the threshold in your picture is the exterior side, from the look of the door jam that door must open outward.
Please note: as each type of replacement door is different, it is highly recommended that you pay close attention to the installation instructions included with your door.
We currently don’t have an exterior door video, so we strongly recommend watching this interior door installation video as it is nearly the same with the exclusion of 2 steps. NOTE: This step may be skipped if the exterior door being installed does not have any exterior molding (casing or trim on the exterior face of the door) pre-installed.
Another way of sealing the door sill instead of caulking is to use a self adhesive door sill guard. Starting on the hinge side of the door, screw in the Quick Door Hanger bracket located behind the TOP door hinge.
Now check the reveal (spacing between the door and door jamb) around the top of the door all the way to the top bracket on the latch side of the door. If the entry door being installed is a very large or is a very heavy door, additional reinforcement may be desired. Remove the center screws from each of the 3 hinges and replace them with long screws that reaches all the way into the wall stud (about 2″ or longer screws). If you pre-drilled the door’s exterior brick molding in step 1, you can now add finishing screws to the molding to help secure it to the building.
The right decision for door replacement in your home depends on which material is visually appealing to you and has the upkeep of your choice. I've picked out a storm door (from anderson) but I'm not sure how I'm going to install it.
This is done so that the door can be placed into the building’s opening with the exterior door molding still attached. These types of self adhesive sills have a polyurethane seal in the adhesive that will properly seal the bottom of the door BETTER than using sealing caulk. You can either caulk the face of the molding that will be going up against the exterior of the building, or you can caulk the exterior of the building around the door opening. From the inside of the building, using a hammer, hammer each of the 6 brackets back to their original shape from STEP 3. Screw in the top Quick Door Hanger bracket, making sure that the reveal is the same on the top of the door and to the top bracket.
If it is desired to reinforce the door with shims, shim the top of the door, shim just above or below the latch stop, and shim as close as possible to the hinges. Using Minimum Expanding Spray Foam Insulation, fill in the crack between the door jamb and the wall.


I had a bathroom door that I had hung using the old shim method, and no matter what, I couldn’t get it right. Marshall Exteriors installs replacement doors made from only the highest-quality materials. Marshall Exteriors proudly serves the cities of Canandaigua, Fairport, Newark, Geneva, Ontario, Seneca Falls, Waterloo, Victor, Farmington, Macedon and nearby areas of New York. Install without the hard work of shimming and no nailing through the door jamb, leaving no nail holes to patch! I followed the instructions as I saw them in the video and twenty minutes later the door was hung plumb and trimmed. Some doors will have bracing that holds them square during the installation process, do not remove this bracing until door has been installed. The brackets have a clearance hole in them, make sure when installing these 3 brackets that this clearance hole lines up directly behind the center screw in each of the hinges (you will be installing a long screw through the hinge and through this clearance hole in STEP 12).
You may want to place the new door into the opening to check that the sub sill is high enough for the door to open.
Then caulk a wavy line down the middle to insure that the exterior door will be properly sealed at the bottom from leaking.
When using this door sill guard, simply place on the floor and run it up each side of the wall 3″.
Caulking will insure that once the door is in place, no water or air will leak around the door, causing rotting of the door jamb and wall do to weathering. Take note of what reference notch the level line drawn on the wall happens to pass through. NOTE: If you decide to install shims, you will need to nail through the door jamb, through the shims, and into the wall stud. The Quick Door Hanger brackets have a clearance hole for the screw to pass through, if the brackets where placed directly behind the hinges. A replacement exterior door can improve your home's curb appeal and provide increased comfort, safety and durability. Wood doors can add a beautiful, traditional look to your home while vinyl and fiberglass doors require almost no maintenance. You may also want to consider pre-drilling the door’s exterior brick molding so that you can add finishing screws to the molding after the door has been installed.
Place the other 3 brackets on the other side of the door across from the hinge side brackets. If it is not, glue and screw a thin piece of treated wood down to the sub sill to raise the door to the needed height. NOTE: After the installation is complete, caulk the crack on the door where the exterior brick molding meets the door jamb and caulk where the jamb meets the sill.


Screw in the next 2 brackets on the hinge side of the door while pulling or pushing the door jamb left or right so that level line goes through the exact same reference notch as the first bracket. If the reveal is too small or too large, simply pull or push the door jamb until the reveal has the desired gap, then screw in the bracket. Normally I’m skeptical with how easy everything looks in the how-to videos, but for $5, I gave it a shot.
For these installation instructions you will be using a package of The Quick Door Hanger interior door brackets, which are available at most Home Depot locations. I am a DIY guy and previous attempt in hanging an occasional door would take me a couple of hours.
An additional packet of 6 brackets may also be needed if the door being installed is very tall, very wide, or has a sidelight. Also caulk the crack around the outside of the door molding where the molding meets the exterior wall. Using the same reference notch for all 3 of these brackets ensures that the door will be perfectly level and plumb based on the drawn line.
If after all the brackets are installed, the reveal is not perfect, simply reverse the bracket screw and move the jamb to the desired location then re-tighten. NOTE: Make sure when screwing in the 3 long screws that you do not tighten to much or it will begin to pull the door jamb in toward the wall. It is the most used parts of your home, and when it comes time for replacement, it should be done with the right materials.
Place these additional 6 brackets; 3 along the top of the door jamb and the remaining brackets on each side of the door in addition to the first 3 brackets on each side. To prevent this pulling in of the jamb, you can place shims or a piece of wood between the door jamb and the wall stud where the screw will go through. NOTE: Use minimum expansion foam (specifically for doors and windows), regular expansion foam can add pressure and bow the door jamb as it dries, creating a bad reveal.
It took about an hour, but that was mostly because I’m slow and wanted to make sure it was perfect before I put up the molding. I might take off another door that I had hung last year just to make sure it’s done right.
