Follow these installation Instructions for installing a pre-cased, pre-hung exterior door. Tools and supplies needed: level, silicone sealant, small caulking gun, 15lb felt paper, copper or led ‘pan’ shims, 2 1/4″ finish nails, 2 1/4″ stainless steel wood screws, staples or roofing nails.
First, you have to make sure your rough framing dimensions are correct. They should be 1/2″ to 1 1/2″ wider than the outside dimensions; of the door frame and 1/2″ to 1″ taller than your door frame. Make sure the threshold and sides are level and plum and that all sheathing; is completely nailed off, tight to the frame. Create a ‘pan.’ This can be done with copper or lead.
Stretch the material across the threshold, rising up each side 6″. Your pan should extend past the interior framing (inside) one inch. This will leave you with approximately 3 1/2″ of material to fold down over the exterior sheathing. Pre-cut 2 3″x 4″ squares and place; at the exterior corners of the threshold. Remove the paper backing and press firmly onto the sheathing. After your corner squares are installed, remove the paper backing from your pan and carefully smooth onto the threshold.
Cut a slice at each corner and fold over the exterior sheathing and your corner squares. A few staples may be necessary if done in a colder climate. (this stuff is sticky so take your time). Cut 8″ strips of 15lb felt paper.
