If you're installing a third hinge, center it between the two. The thresholds inside your house and the sills and thresholds in exterior doorways are the hardest-working parts of your doors. Because they're exposed to continual foot traffic and, in the case of exterior doorways, the elements, both may eventually need to be replaced. The sill forms the bottom of the frame of an exterior doorway and serves the same function as a window sill—it diverts water away from the door and house. The sill fits snugly under the casing and against or under the jambs.
Sure the replacement door you purchase will fit your opening. CAUTION: Be sure to double check all measurements before cutting. Here are a few points to keep in mind when hanging a door: ready beveled, install it so the beveled edge is on the lock side. • Sand or plane any excess wood up to 1/16 inch on the door's top and bottom, up to 1/4 inch on the sides. Saw off any excess that's greater; sand. • Leave a 1/16-inch clearance around the door on the top and sides. Bottom clearance should be at least 1/2 inch—more if you need to clear a rug.
You may be able to compensate for a slightly warped door by repositioning the stop, partially shimming the hinges, or adding a hinge. It's best to replace a door that's badly warped (pages 72-73). Where there's a slight bow on the hinge side, centering a third hinge between the top and bottom ones often pulls the door back into alignment. If the bow is near the lock side and the door latches only when slammed, first try adjusting the latch (page 72). If this doesn't help, remove and reposition the stop as for a window (page 55) and, if necessary adjust the strike plate alignment (page 72).
