What’S The Rough Opening Of A Jeld Wen Exterior Door?

Answer:

The spec-sheet from Jeld-Wen states that for a 3060 window, for example, the rough opening should be 36" by 72", with the actual window frame being 35-1/2" by 71-1/2". Only a 1/2" clearance sure ain’t much, particularly if the framing isn’t perfectly plumb and if you add material for a 1/16" thick window pan etc..
