Entry Doors: Types

Types

When it comes to entry doors, you have two choices: slab and prehung.

Slab Door

SLAB DOORS

  • Good choice if only the door needs to be replaced
  • Framing not included
  • Old door is taken off its hinges
  • New door's lock and hinges are aligned properly by the installer
  • Hardware (doorknobs, handlesets and locksets) sold separately

Prehung Door

PREHUNG DOORS

  • Good choice if the door and framing must be replaced
  • Door comes already attached to hinges and to door framing, which includes thresholds and weather-stripping
  • Existing door and framing are removed, and the prehung unit is installed
  • Hardware (doorknobs, handlesets and locksets) sold separately
