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. Areas such as Florida
and the Texas TDI region have different anchoring requirements
based on product certification. For information on specific products,
visit www.floridabuilding.org or www.tdi.texas.gov and follow the
anchoring schedule given in the drawings for the product instead of
the anchoring schedule in this document.
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.
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.
SAFETY AND HANDLING
SAFETY
• Read and fully understand ALL manufacturers’ instructions before
beginning. Failure to follow proper installation instructions may result in
the denial of warranty claims for operational or performance problems.
• Do not work alone. Two or more people are required. Use safe
lifting techniques.
• Use caution when handling glass. Broken or cracked glass can cause
serious injury.

INSPECT ROUGH OPENING
• Determine prior to
Verify Square, Level, and Plumb
installation what the
actual finish floor
height will be and
adjust the rough
opening if needed to
accommodate a taller
A
unit height. Most
doors use a
E
C
1 3/8" high threshold
which provides
adequate clearance
D
B
in most applications.
This ensures that the
door does not drag
on interior floors
after installation.
• Verify the door is 1"
narrower and 3/4"shorter (1/2" each smaller if code requires) than the
rough opening width/height. 90-minute fire doors should be 1 1/4"
narrower and 5/8" shorter.
3
• Verify the rough opening is square. The (A) and (B) measurements
should be the same. Maximum allowable deviation from square is
1/4".
• Verify the rough opening is level and plumb (C). The maximum
allowable deviation is 1/8".
• The rough opening sill must not be crowned or sagged (D). A 5 degree
sloped sill is recommended.
• The exterior face of the rough opening must be in a single plane (E)
with less than 1/8" twist from corner to corner.
• Minimum double studs should be used at all wood framed rough
openings.
• The header must be supported by trimmer studs.
FOR RETROFIT INSTALLATIONS
After removing the old door, remove sufficient cladding (siding, stucco,
etc.) to expose enough intact building wrap to properly seal the door
system to the opening. If damaged, apply new building wrap in shiplap
manner. Verify the rough opening framing is structurally sound. Contact
your local waste management entities for proper disposal or recycling
of products being removed.
INSTALL SILL PAN

PREPARE STUD-FRAMED WALL
FOR RETROFIT INSTALLATIONS
After removing the old door, remove sufficient siding to expose at least
9" of intact building wrap. If damaged, apply new building wrap in a
shiplap manner. Verify header and trimmer studs are structurally sound.
PREPARE BUILDING WRAP
Verify these steps are allowed by the building wrap manufacturer.
1. Trim building wrap
flush with the
edges of the rough
opening.
2. If installing a drip
cap, (recommended
6"
because this
integrates the
building wrap and
45˚
drip cap to protect
the structure and
the product from
incidental water)
at the head, slit
building wrap 6"
at 45°. Tape up as
shown.
3. Trim the sides
sufficiently to allow
the nailing fin to be
mounted against the
sheathing.
4. Apply spray adhesive/
primer to the sill pan
and surrounding
area. Follow
manufacturer’s
instructions for application methods.
5. Cut a piece of self-adhered flashing the length of the sill and apply
over the sill pan as shown. The bottom of the sill pan should be
completely covered by the self-adhered flashing. For step down
landings, fold flashing down as shown. For continuous slabs, trim
flush with rough opening.

4. From the inside, shim the jambs as follows: One shim on each end
of the sill (between jamb and sill, not under sill). Single/double units
at each hinge location and at the strike plate. Units with sidelights,
between the sidelight and wall in at least 3 places until the door is
square in the opening.
5. For doors with metal frames, secure with nails or screws through the
provided holes in the frame either above or below every oval slot. For
all other doors, temporarily fasten the latch jamb by placing one 10d
casing nail (or one #8 x 3" deck screw) horizontally centered in the
latch jamb 16" from the top and bottom of the door. Do not set nails/
screws.
6. Verify the door unit is square, then securely fasten the hinge jamb
by setting the two nails or screws installed earlier. Add an additional
nail or screw centered between the first two and one 4" from each
corner.
7. Remove any remaining pre-hanging clips. Be sure the door opens
freely and that the space between the door and the jamb is even on
all sides. Adjust if necessary by loosening or removing the strike jamb
fasteners and adjust until there is even contact between the slab and
weatherstrip. Secure all fasteners.
DOUBLE DOOR, SIDELIGHT OR TRANSOM INSTALLATIONS
1. If installing a door with a sidelight(s), shim the head on both sides of
the joint where the sidelight joins the door jamb. Fasten next to the
shims and then remove shims.
2. Shim the head of double door units or units with sidelight(s) at the
