How To Measure The Storm Door

Things To Do
  • Measure the exact position where the door will be installed.
  • Carefully measure from wood door jamb (brickmold) to wood door jamb.
  • Measure for the opening in three places vertically and horizontally - use the smallest of each of the three measurements - see diagrams at left and below.
Things Not To Do
  • Do not measure the existing storm door.
  • Do not measure from Z-Bar to Z-Bar of the existing storm door.
  • Do not measure the main/interior door.
Minimum Depth

Minimum Depth of The Storm Door

NOTE: A minimum depth of 3 3/4" is required between the prime door and the storm door mounting point (Z-Bar) for a proper fit. When the depth is less than 3 3/4" we recommend the addition of brick mold (casings).
