Installing a Door and a Window

  • Boston Building Resources 100 Terrace Street Boston, MA, 02120 United States (map)

This hands-on class will help you learn how to replace a door or to hang a door in a finished opening where the jamb is already in place. We will cover fitting the door to the opening, including trimming a Reuse Center door to size and making a door work in an opening that may not be quite plumb and square. We will also install a window in a rough opening, with attention paid to creating a watertight installation and sealing against air infiltration.

Vincent Dorio has been a carpenter for more than 20 years. He has worked on small and large remodeling projects as a carpenter, supervisor, and manager. He is now the Receiver for the Reuse Center at BBR.
