        posted
        Hey all, first post, and also just bought my first home.
        I am replacing an exterior door and my contractor buddy told me to keep an eye out for a door (Im shopping used to save some money) He said 36x80 which I think is a typical size. I found one that's 36"x79.5" and also one at 79" both framed/hung doors. Would that work or does it need to be exactly 80"?

        Thanks in advance...

        That will work fine. You may have to trim it in a little differently than the existing door but that's no big deal.
