How to Measure for a Wood Storm Door

Accurate measurements are key to make sure your door installation goes smoothly. We fabricate all of our doors full and square, so if you have an older home, you may need to trim some if the house has settled and your door frame is not exactly square. Don’t worry though, all our doors are built to allow for some trimming!

Learning door terminology is beneficial, so the first thing we will go through are the areas on a door that you need to understand in order to measure accurately.

Brickmould (also known as, Trim) or Brick mold: It covers the gap between the window or door frame and the exterior part of the brick or siding on the house. These are usually decorative pieces of wood that border the door on the face of the house. It is mostly aesthetic, but it does provide the space to mount a storm door. Typically, it is 1-1/8” thick and can be made from many materials, including wood, aluminum, PVC, or other composite materials.

Jamb: An upright piece forming the door opening. Can be broken down into Side Jambs, or the vertical pieces, and the Head Jamb, which is the horizontal piece above the door. Both side jambs and head jamb combine to form the Door Frame.

Sill: Only found on exterior doors, this is the bottom component of a door frame. The sill is sealed and fastened to the floor.

Threshold: This is a protective “cap” that covers the sill. Typically, it is sloped toward the exterior in order to move water away from the bottom of the door. These are usually made of metal to withstand foot traffic.

Door Sweep: A piece of weather-stripping installed directly on the bottom of the door. It provides a weather-resistant barrier between the door and the sill.

How to Measure for a Storm Door Diagram

Click the button below for a nice, easy-to-follow diagram on measuring correctly for your new storm door.

For additional information on the parts of a door, see our Anatomy (Vocabulary) of a Storm Door.

In order to get the most accurate measurements for ordering a storm door, you want to take several measurements. This will ensure that you know beforehand if you will need to do any trimming, as well.

First, you will measure the width from inside brickmould to inside brickmould. It is best to measure in three places, near the top, at the middle, and near the bottom.

Second, the height will be measured in two places. This should be from the inside of the head jamb to the sill. You will want to measure both the left and right sides, a little way in from the trim.

How to Measure Width and Height for a Storm Door Diagram

Once you have recorded all your measurements, you will want to use the largest measurement as your Actual Width and Actual Height. You can always trim the door down, but you cannot add it on!

PLEASE NOTE: We fabricate to your exact dimensions. We do NOT make any deductions to the measurements that you provide.

As a precautionary step, it is always a good idea to measure the thickness of your brickmould to ensure that our 1-1/8” thick door will fit. We can adjust the thickness of the door if needed, but those circumstances would need to be quoted.

The last part is something that is a little more dependent upon your installation method or a contractor if you will not be installing. That piece is reduction for fit. You need to allow for hinges and operation, so the Actual Width and Actual Height will need to be reduced slightly. Standardly, reduction is 1/8” on each side, so ¼” from the Actual Width and ¼” from the Actual Height to get your Order Width and Order Height. (Please consult with your contractor—if applicable—unless they are measuring and providing you with the Order Width and Order Height. It is always best to let them know that we DO NOT take any deductions and make the door full and square to the provided dimensions.)
