Pre-hung Doors what are they ?

Slab doors are what would usually come to your mind when you think of doors. It’s that rectangular piece of wood, or any other material, that swings to open and close. Pre-hung doors on the other hand are more like a complete packages. A pre-hung door would come with everything that’s needed. The slab would be attached to the frame with hinges and all the hardware that would be needed later on.


Are there pre-hung doors in your home that needs to be replaced? You have a lot of options when it comes to door materials, but you would have to make a choice between two door types. We’re talking about pre-hung doors and slab doors.

Why Go for Pre-hung Doors?

A pre-hung door is normally the more practical option for most homeowners. Here are some of the reasons why you should go for a pre-hung door:

  • There is no need for the time consuming process of attaching the slab to the frame with hinges.
  • Pre-hung doors can deliver better insulation than solid slab doors since many of them have thermal cores.
  • Most pre-hung doors have weather stripping in place already.

Those are just some of the benefits that you can get when you choose to use pre-hung doors. This type of door is the best option if there is no existing frame where the door can be installed or if the existing frame is so damaged that it is better to get a new one instead of trying to repair it.

Pre-hung doors are also ideal if you are doing some extensive remodeling work in your home and you are planning on changing a lot of features in your house. It would be a good idea to change the frames as well.
