Warped Exterior Door Is Hard To Source At 80" Tall


I can source an exterior 79" slab all day for around $200, but any ideas what to do about that extra inch?

It'l be painted, flush panel.

No local door shop?

Does it have to meet energy code?

Must be an odd ball size door , or in an old house. Think I would just put in a whole new assembly.

You have a couple of options one is it possible to raise the sill, Or remove the doorstop at the top, and install a new piece of wood and doorstop to close the gap....Pictures would definitely help.

It's a 36" door with a side lite. So a new one of those, plus new trim inside and out, would easily cost my customer over $1000.

Raising sill or blocking jamb top down are options.

Local door shops are sourcing 79" slabs or making their own for $1000.

Does not have to. Though the reason for the change request is because it's leaky and cold.

Put an extra tall weather sweep on the bottom of the door.

Just as a warning to ya. Most Pemko stuff when ordered needs to get to a minimum order, usually $250, before they ship. At least that's been my experience. So if your vendor orders it, it might be a while before it shows. Most places I saw it sold was at about $35.

I Don't have a stock source for flush panet, I usually make those. HD has 80 inch raised panel, so someone must make a flush panel

On antique doors, I've had to glue wood to the edges so I can cut to fit.
