How to install a storm door (Page 1)


Step 1. Test fit the door in the opening. If it is loose, add a shim to the hinge side of the door. Cut the piece with a circular saw and nail it to the side of the jamb, flush with the front of the casing.

 

Step 2. Install the rain cap at the top of the door opening The directions or the door you have will explain exactly how to do this. Sometimes its the first step like we show here, sometimes its installed after the door is in place.

 

Step 3. Measure the height of the opening and cut the hinge flange to match this measurement. Use a hacksaw and work slowly so the saw wont hop out of the cut and scratch a visible area of the hinge.

 

Step 4. Lift the door and push it tightly into the opening. Partially drive one mounting screw near the bottom and another near the top. Check the door for plumb, and when satisfied, drive all the mounting screws tight to the flange.
