THERE ARE 3 CRITICAL measurements: Width, height and if it is a combo door, the jamb width (thickness). With combo doors, the jamb measurement is critical. This measurement is the thickness of the wall (see measuring guide). Earlier homes built used a 4” jamb while newer homes can vary from 6” to even 6 ½” thick.
All mobile homes door sizes are based on “rough opening” or RO. When you remove the door and measure the opening, this will give you the “rough opening” or RO. Typically these numbers will be slightly larger than the “Call Size” of the door to allow the door to be shimmed to plumb and level. For example, once door is removed and you measure the opening at 32 ½ wide x 76 ½ tall, you would order a 32x76 door. If the door cannot be removed, the best way to size it would be to remove the interior trim and measure the door WITH THE SIDE JAMBS then add ½”. This will give you the call size for width and height.
The actual door assembly sometimes called “Buck Size” will measure slightly smaller than the call size to allow for adjustments.
Hand or Hinge? Which way does the door open?
Standing on the OUTSIDE of the home, which side are the hinges on? If they are on the left side, you have a LEFT HAND DOOR. On the right? You have a RIGHT HAND DOOR.
Measure Width & Height. Mobile home windows are based on “call size”. Typically, the RO (rough opening) is ¼” to ½” larger in width and height to allow for adjustment to achieve setting the window plumb in the opening. Always measure from inside your home and measure frame to frame (call size). Do NOT include the flange.
