There are two ways to measure for a door:

  • Measure an existing door – Measure the height, width, and thickness of the door that fits in the current doorway.
  • Measure a doorway or door frame – Measure the space that will receive the door; its height, width, and depth.

When you are measuring for a door:

  • Use a carpenter’s tape measure.
  • Take each measurement three times, in millimeters, for each side of the door. For height, measure the left, the centre, and the right sides of the frame and door. Repeat this for the same procedure in the width, with the top, middle and bottom of the door and frame.
