Measure a Door with These Simple Steps
Step 1: Measure the doorÃ¯Â¿Â½s width. The doorÃ¯Â¿Â½s width runs parallel to the ground. Take your measuring tape and bring it from one side of your door to the other. Mark this number down first.
Step 2: Measure the doorÃ¯Â¿Â½s height. The height of the door is from the top of the door to the bottom. Use your measuring tape along this length and record this number second.
Step 3: Measure the hinges. In order to measure the hinges, start with your tape measure at the top of the door and then measure to the top of the first hinge Ã¯Â¿Â½ this is the number you need to record for the first of three hinges. To record your second hinge, start with your tape measure at the top of the door again and measure all the way to the top of the second hinge. Repeat these steps to measure for the third hinge and record that number as well. You should have three different measurements, one for each hinge.
Step 4: Measure the doorknobÃ¯Â¿Â½s location. The next item you must measure for is the location of the doorknob. Similarly, you will start with your tape measure at the top of the door and then bring it down, stopping at the top of the door knob or door handle. Record this number.
