Handyman, I currently have some deterioting Wooden Entry doors, that I wish to replace with full view metal doors. Problem is I don't need to replace my frames etc as they are good and the Wooden Doors are 80", and the desired Metal doors are only 79 1/2". How can I continue with this project and get around replacing the frames, etc?

Can't you build down the header?

Also, if you are buying a steel door replacement kit, you might be just fine.

Check the rough opening size of the kit.

Good luck,

You can call a Kolbe & Kolbe distributor, and have them order a "Special Size" metal door slab. They will make it to your height.
