I just purchased a storm door from Lowe's and on the instructions it says the minimum clearance is 33 7/8-in. The door frame itself is within specifications but the vinyl door jam from the inside extends all the way to the outside. As a result, the clearance is probably around 33 5/8-in to 33 3/4-in. If the door jam was wood, i guess I could plane it down but it is vinyl. What do I do?
you have to check one more thing, make sure you have big gap between the handles of both doors so they don't hit each other when they close,
you can install from outside another piece of square wood and create the size you need, most of it will be covered by the storm door frame.
to say more we need to see it.
