Tip: Measuring for a storm door

The standard height for a storm door is 81 inches and there are two standard widths, either 32 or 36 inches. A 32-inch door fits door openings that measure 317/8-inches - 32 3/8 inches wide. A 36-inch door will work in a door opening that's 35 7/8-inches - 36 3/8-inches.
