Entry Doors

I have double entry doors with a 60" opening. I want to replace them. I was going to use a vinyl or steel but was told since they have to be trimed a little I have to use wood?
1. Is that true? 2. Can someone tell me where to get the "how to" information for doing this job? I want to replace the threshold, weather strip, etc. at the same time. Thanks

A 60" opening (I assume you are talking width) for double entry doors is awfully narrow. Entry doors are generally 36" side, each. In my opinion, a 36" door with sidelites would be a better choice for this opening. But, that's my opinion, and it's your house. Guess who's opinion rules!

You should be able to find a set of prehung double doors that will fit your opening, whether they be steel, fiberglass, or wood. The prehung unit will include the threshold, weatherstripping, etc., and is installed as a unit.

Thanks, I'm going shopping. I've seen pre-hung single doors but not double. Evidently I'm not looking in the right places. And, believe it or not I actually have two 30" slightly trimmed doors to replace.
