How do I determine rough opening sizes for common closet door sizes?

Bifold Closet Doors Sizes

The closet doors are most likely listed in actual finished opening size. However it is a good idea to use a tape measure to check 100% for sure. Some doors are made a little oversize to allow trimming into final size for the specified opening size. Other doors may very well be made a small amount undersize to allow for the necessary clearances needed for a finish sized door within the specified opening size.

The installation instructions that come with many doors will be your first go-to source of information regarding the finished opening size is applicable to the doors.

As far as the rough opening size . . . That is totally dependent on your individual situation. Some things that will affect rough opening size are:

= The size and thickness of the door jamb material for cases where a jamb is used.

= Style of jamb used and how the door itself will interact with the jamb.

= Squareness and true of the rough opening. A rough opening that is out of square by some amount will require the jamb to shimmed away from the studs in a way to bring the jamb into square and plumb. This may increase the rough opening size by the amount of shimming that is required.

Can somebody help me find bifold closet doors

That can cover an 84 inch door opening. I just want plain white six panel doors. Masonite is the most popular but the max is a 72inch opening. I dont want to put panels on the sides - can anyone recommend another company that would make a bigger size, special order (i need custom height too - 92 inches)

Now you're confusing things- you say it's 8'8"

Describe the framing "on top of/behind the curtain track", which wouldn't have anything to do with the width of the opening...
regardless, that's a pretty big opening to install bifolds can be done, but any of the various options are going to have some drawbacks-
You could go with four 26" panels (not a standard bifold panel size but what door shops do in many cases is to just hinge shutters together, and they come in all kinds of interim sizes and panel/louver designs)...
Problem is that when open, they will stick both into and out of the closet over a foot

    I have cabinets in my kitchen that are painted.......i want to go oak face frame and doors...............can i pull off the existing face frame, and replace with an oak question is......whats the best way to build the frame......dowels?

    • The face frames may be a beotch to replace; they were built on the cabinet boxes, or glued to them. Just depends on the construction. The best way is to use pocket screws. There is an angled hole (pocket) drilled into th …e fancy machine).

      Otherwise, you just apply the boards individually to the cabinet box and pin the edge that hangs down with a finish nail (not the best method, but it's done on built in shelves everyday).
