Do I need a door frame or is the door frame existing?
Generally, internal doors have steel frames and external doors have wooden frames. Doors can be bought pre-hung or as slabs.
- Pre-hung doors are mounted in a frame with hinges attached to the doorjamb.
- A slab door will only be the door panel, you will need to install hinges and the door frame to make sure that the door is hung properly.
