INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
for Pre-Hung Exterior Entry Doors (JII106)
Thank you for selecting JELD-WEN® products. Attached are
JELD-WEN’s recommended installation instructions for Exterior
Wood, Steel, and Fiberglass Pre-Hung Doors. Read these
instructions thoroughly before beginning. They are designed to
work in most existing applications; however, existing conditions
may require changes to these instructions. If changes are needed,
they are made at the installer’s risk. For installations other than
indicated in these instructions, contact a building professional.
Newer construction methods have led to an increase in air and water
tightness in buildings. This frequently leads to negative air pressure
inside the house, which can draw water through very small openings.
Our installation method seals the door to the weather barrier
(typically building wrap) and uses a sill pan to capture and drain
incidental storm water from under the door.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND GLOSSARY
Not all exterior door types may be installed into every wall condition
in all areas. See our Appropriate Protection document for overhang
requirements and our Additional Requirements document for Fire
Doors at www.jeld-wen.com/resources. Consult your local building
code official (or Authority having Jurisdiction) for applicable building
codes and regulations. Local building code requirements supersede
recommended installation instructions.
Please Note! Any exterior door installation where the sill is higher than
35 feet above ground level or into a wall condition not specifically
addressed in these instructions must be designed by an architect or
structural engineer. Failure to install square, level and plumb and on a
flat surface (without twist or warp) could result in denial of warranty
claims for operational or performance problems.
Note to Installer: Provide a copy of these instructions to the building
owner. By installing this product, you acknowledge the terms and
conditions of the limited warranty as part of the terms of the sale.
GLOSSARY
Backer Rod (backing material)
A material (e.g. foam rod), placed into a joint primarily to control the
depth of the sealant.
Buck
A wood framework attached to the masonry inside a window or a door
rough opening.
Door System/Pre-Hung Door
A pre-cut and assembled unit consisting of a door slab (prepared for the
locking or passage hardware) hung on hinges in a wood or metal frame.
Hinge Jamb
The side of the jamb on which the hinges of a door are installed.
Rough Opening
The framed opening in a wall where a door is to be installed.
Security Plate
A metal plate pre-installed into the frame of a pre-hung door. It is
designed to provide extra strength and stability from a forced entry
attempt by allowing the latch of the door to rest inside it when the
door is closed.
Shiplap
The layering method in which each layer overlaps the layer below it so
that water runs down the outside.
Shipping Strap
Small, metal or plastic clips that come attached to a door system. These clips
help keep a door slab closed and aligned before and during installation.
Sidelight
A fixed, usually rectangular window placed on either side of a door.
Sill Pan
A three-sided box made of sheet material. The door sill sits inside the sill
pan in the rough opening. It is designed to catch water that infiltrates
into the rough opening and divert it to the outside.
Strike Jamb
The side of the jamb that makes contact with the latch on a door slab.
Please allow sufficient time to properly prepare the rough opening,
install the entry door, and ensure its proper operation.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
for Pre-Hung Exterior Entry Doors (JII106)
ROUGH OPENINGS
This installation guide specifically addresses masonry/block wall,
sheathed wall and open-stud construction.
MASONRY/BLOCK WALL CONSTRUCTION
This installation
assumes that a
building professional
has already properly
fastened and sealed
a framework of studs
(often called a buck)
to the concrete/
masonry wall.
FULLY SHEATHED WALL CONSTRUCTION
The wall framing is
covered by sheathing
and the door will be
mounted with the
exterior trim flush
against the sheathing.
This installation
assumes building wrap
is properly installed
prior to installation.

OPEN-STUD CONSTRUCTION
The wall framing needs to be completely surrounded by backing
support (non water-degradable, thin (max. 1/8" thick) sheet material
such as plywood or lauan) before installing building wrap and the
door. The door will be mounted with the exterior trim flush against the
applied backing support.

WARNING! If installing fasteners through fiberglass components, we
recommend pre-drilling holes to keep the fiberglass from splitting.
Note! This section covers single door, double door, and doors with a
transom or a sidelight(s) already installed by the factory.
1. Remove any pre-hanging clips that are fastened to the outside of
the jamb that will be covered when the unit is placed in the rough
opening. Adequately support the slab to keep it from swinging
open during installation.
2. Forunitswith
brickmould trim,
