Entry doors are available as both slabs and in standard prehung sizes that fit most newer houses. If you have an opening with an unusual size or would like a custom-made door, you may need to buy a slab. Slabs require a few additional steps to those shown below for a prehung door, which arrive with the jambs and hinges already in place. Replacing an older entry door with a new insulated door can save energy, as well. The most important part of hanging a door is to make sure it's plumb and level.
