Hey Maria,

I am glad to hear that you are tackling big DIY projects at your home. I am Gregg from The Home Depot in Chicago. The most important part of installing any door is measuring. You need the accurate measurements of the rough opening (the stud to stud measurement) and the jamb depth (the thickness of the wall). You also need to know the swing of the door. Your door most likely swings into the house, but does it swing to the right or the left when looking from the outside of your house?

Here are the basic instructions CLICK HERE

Let us know some more of the specifics. What kind of siding do you have? How is your existing door trimmed on the outside? -Gregg
