Hello Pattilegs1,

 

The finished opening should be just about the same size. The doors have rollers that are adjustable so if the call out size is 60” x 80 ½” than that would be the opening size that it would fit in.

 

So for the rough opening all you would have to do is minus the thickness of whatever you are using to finish it with. For example if you are sheeting it with ½” drywall than you would minus 1” from the width and ½” from the height. Wood jambs are normally ¾” thick so you would minus 1 ½” off of the width and ¾” from the height.

 

In other words for drywall the rough opening would be 59” x 80" and for wood jambs it would be 49 ½” x 79 ¾”.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions. I would love to help.
