*This is the most common type of exterior door opening requested and depending on what type wall you have the only difference in material required is the header of the frame. In the above material list we have a  4" head which would go with an 8" block wall to course out with the joint & if you have a brick wall you would use a 2" header. Now all we have to do is cut a rough opening in the block wall to accept the welded frame and anchor in place by using the existing wall anchor bolts. Once the frames is plumb & square and the opening caulked it's time to hinge, hang & hardware. Now you have a satisfied Fire Marshal and a safe working environment. Apex Doors, this is what we do!!!!
