Door jamb and hanging

Hi there,


I have a door that is not prehung and I am putting it into a room that I have re-drywalled and there is just a rough opening.  I can't find any videos online where it explains the entire process of reframing the door after the rough opening is done to hanging.  any help?

Hey Brooklynreno,

Welcome to the Home Depot Community! I made a quick video to explain the basic idea of building a door frame. Basically you will build the door frame so the slab that you have can fit into it and then you hang it like a prehung unit. If you need more details on certain aspects of this project let me know.

Here are some instructions on installing the frame into the rough opening after you build it CLICK HERE  Good Luck . -Gregg
