My detached garage has a 1 3/8" thickness door on there with a dead
I tried to find a replacement in home depot and they told me it is a
interior door thickness and they don't have a door in 1 3/8" with a
dead bolt (I was told the "lock block" isn't big enough) and I could
only replace it with an interior door. It's possible the builder got
these custom thin doors built with dead bolts provision in them 20
It's hard to believe this is really so rare because I have seen doors
of this thickness with deadbolt in other houses; i.e. going into
backyard or garage into the house etc.
But they recommended me to upgrade to a thicker door made for
exterior, in which I would have to at least move the door stop or
replace the whole door frame to acommodate the extra thickness. The
latter seem like a lot of work.
The current door is structurally sound but the wood on the surface has
wrinkled up a bit. Which is why I am looking for a replacement and
Any help is appreciated.
