Arrow Floor Not that good.


I am prepare my new kitchen and we will in a couple weeks going to install a big French door ( expense) and I did the frame for the door but never look at the floor that is not level are all. On the right side of the door, I have 83 3/4 and on the left side I have 84 3/4 that is a 1 inc of difference so. I am stock here with that. WHAT I CAN DO TO FIX that?

Sure, I install a 2x6 on the floor to level that and then install the door. Sure I live like that and install the door and shims on the floor ?

I have plywood on the floor
I will have concrete boards over the plywood
I will have hadint heat over the concrete boards
I will have mortar tile over the radiant heat
And I will have tile over the mortar tile.

Please Help

Hi, most likely you will be shimming this door on 3 sides anyway. I would leave everything at floor level alone and remove(with a plane) some material from the header above. double check the rough opening on your door that you are purchasing and just mabye they are giving you enough play to still use the opening that you have and still be square & plumb. Your finish casing will cover the (oops) that we all create. After framing quite a few doors and windows my speed square and framing square are my best friends when i am fastening the joints. Happy New Year and I'm sure those doors will look great.
