Reversing Pre-hung Exterior Doors
I’m in the midst of installing three new pre-hung exterior doors, two of which are out-swing doors, chosen because of tight interior space. The things one does not think of until too late. It dawned on me today (much too late) that the out-swing doors will be a problem with 2″ of exterior insulation, 1/2″ of rain screen and 1″ of siding.
Knowing that the thresholds are different between in-swing and out-swing doors (https://rustica.com/inswing-or-outswing-door/), is it possible to reverse these two doors to be in-swing doors without any negative consequences? Unfortunately, none of the suggestions here for out-swing doors and exterior insulation will work for my situation. One door is in an RO on a garage slab and the other door is an exterior door to a deck.
