Are you looking to measure and replace your manufactured home exterior doors? You may be glad to learn that mobile home remodeling projects might be a wise investment. A manufactured home can keep its structural integrity and aesthetic appeal by replacing or fixing its exterior doors.

To guarantee the perfect fit and installation, measurements must be collected before replacing the exterior doors on your manufactured home. Mobile house door dimensions differ from those of traditional foundation-built homes.

Before you redesign the room or house, you must perform accurate measurements because manufactured home exterior door styles and designs vary a lot. Now that you have understood the importance of manufactured home exterior doors, it is time to follow the steps below for a complete guide on measuring your manufactured home exterior doors.

Step 1

Start by calculating the width of the wall opening. To do so, you need to measure the opening gap from one wall to the other while imagining the exterior door fully gone from the room.

What is this initial measurement for, you may ask? The measurement gives you a ballpark estimate of the entryway perimeter which is very important for the next action steps. Do take note that you should measure the inside of the door rather than the exterior because the dimensions of mobile home doors vary depending on the requirements of the manufacturer.

Step 2

With Step 1 completed, you will now need to check to see if the intended manufactured home exterior door is an outward-swinging standard door. Measure the full opening from the interior part of the house for an outward swinging door.

Since manufactured home exterior doors can only be purchased in 2-inch-high and 2-inch-wide measuring increments, the closest estimate for replacing the door will be based on the size of the entire opening.

Step 3

You are now done with the basic measurements to be taken. Moving forward, verify the size of your manufactured home exterior door opening on the mobile home. A mobile home door typically measures 32 inches by 76 inches (continue to check and verify regardless). Doors on manufactured homes that were built before 1980 tend to be a little bit smaller.

The normal size for the doors is 32 by 72 inches. Although there are other sizes available, these two standard mobile home exterior door sizes are the most widely available and are also the easiest to locate. Accurately verify the size of your door before moving to the next step.

Step 4

Step 4 is for you to decide if you want a combination door that swings inward and has a storm door. The entire aperture should be measured as though it were a typical outward-swinging door. Measure the rough inside opening as well, taking the door frame into account.

Step 5

You are now down to the last step. When measuring a combination door, take into account the wooden frame. Combination mobile home doors have a hardwood frame that is about half an inch thicker than the metal frame that generally accompanies a standard outward swinging door on each side, as well as on the top and bottom of the door. When measuring the inner rough aperture, take into account the extra 1/2 inch measurements all around. One of the typical dimensions for combination mobile home doors is 34 by 36.
