One of the most important issues to get correct when ordering a door is getting the swing correct. There are usually two issues you should address. First, the preferred way to open a door is to have the light switch easily accessible when entering the room, so you would not generally like to have to go behind the door you just opened in-order to turn on the lights. This is not always that big of an issue as most people do not ingress and egress through their front door but is preferred. The other issue is you should try and draw your guests eye to a view that is desirable as they enter, such as not to a wall, but rather an open room, a window, a staircase or other item that is preferred. Please use this diagram to select your swing as you are responsible for the swing selected or ordered and its acceptable application.

When purchasing a door or ordering a special order door remember that we simply sell and or build what you, your installer or builder request based on what you provide. We guarantee that your ordered doors will be build per the CAD drawing provided by our design team and factory, but it is your sole responsibility to verify what is being purchased and or ordered for you is acceptable for your use and application. You must verify its dimensions, its swing, its color, its glass its jam size and so on. Do remember that in most applications a 2×6 jamb is for a 2×4 wall and a 2×6 wall may need to have a 2×8 jamb or the use of brick mold or our trim kit or have your builder modify the application of the finished exterior product being applied. We will provide you with CAD drawings for your review. When doing a remodel please note that there are many variables as to the max size you can have your door built and be able to set it properly, such as were your studs are in relation to your exterior material such as stone and brick. On New construction your rough opening should be 2 inch’s wider and 1 Inch taller than the unit size that you have purchased and or ordered (you will find the unit measurements on the CAD drawing provided). Please note that if your finished floors are not in yet you may have to allow for that adjustment if the door will need to be raised to accommodate finished floor material. The threshold on the inside is 1 inch, so you may need to raise the door off the slab depending on your thickness of your finished interior floors. Should you have any questions please verify with us before order is placed as all special ordered doors are non refundable as they have been built to your specific requested dimensions and specs.
