How do you fit aluminium door that needs wooden frame?

Postby monkeymagic » Wed Jun 20, 2007 7:45 pm

I have seen an exterior back door in wickes that fits the opening to my door. It is an aluminium door that says it needs fitting into a timber frame (although it is already in an aluminium frame). I am having trouble working out exactly what this means.

Do I have to buy a timber frame then install this and screw the new door and frame in to this? If so, couldn't I just put any old wood (not a purpose built timber frame) up around the door opening and screw the aluminium frame and door into this?

Simply Build It

Thats exactly what it means. The ali "frame" is really just a liner and needs to be screwed into a wooden frame and yes you can make one.
