Hey sonny0925.

You can find install guides on the product page of any of our doors online. I attached an orange link below.

How to instructions for installing bi-fold doors

Unlike regular doors, bi-fold doors are sized by the manufacturer to fit the finished opening.  So for example, if you have a 36" finished opening, the doors themselves will be slightly smaller (about 15 3/4" wide) but the packaging will be labeled 36".  If you are framing for a bi-fold door, it's important to remember to take into account the thickness of the drywall or wood jamb when measuring for your framing.  So for example, if you are going to use 1/2" thick drywall returns and want a 36" opening, the studs would be 37" apart.  37" - (1/2" x 2) = 36".

If you have an odd sized opening then you can try custom doors, although depending on the door style, can get expensive.  Or you can try to adjust the opening but how difficult that is depends on the opening.
