Hi everyone, I'm about to replace an exterior door with a pre-hung Therma
Tru door. One thing I'm not quite sure about is the trim on the outside of
the new door. The old (current) door has thin ~ 2 inch outside trim that the
painted clap board siding buts up against. The new door has much wider
What's the best way to deal with the clap-board siding? I was thinking I
might be able to nail back the siding, then use a circular saw to cut away
the couple of inches of siding needed to fit the new door & trim. Trouble
is, I won't know the exact placment of the door until it's in place, leveled
Now that I think about it, I might be able to remove the trim from the new
door for the install, the replace after I cut back the siding? I hope the
trim comes off. Sometimes this stuff is glued and staped so much that both
sides get wreaked trying to remove just the outside trim.
Any advice would be appreciated. I've never replaced a hung door before.
