Now, as for how to remove the old French doors, you’ll just need to do the following things:

  • Put down drop cloths and create a plastic barrier. When you remove the old doors, it’s likely a lot of dust will fly about. Put down drop cloths and use plastic to cover nearby furniture.
  • Remove the interior trim casing. The interior trim casing will need to go first. Even if you don’t want to take it down, it will get in the way. So, start by removing the interior trim casing from the fixture and stack it neatly in a pile where it’s out-of-the-way.
  • Remove the two doors, one-by-one. After removing the first door from the hinges, go ahead and take out the other door. Then, the frame will be fully exposed and easier to access to take it out.
  • Remove the old door frame. The frame will be likely be screwed to the walls, the top and bottom of the rough opening. Unfasten the bottom first, the sides second, and the top last. You can then pry the frame out of the rough opening.
  • Pry the exterior trim away, then cut the jamb. Remove the exterior trim from the framing and then cut the jamb out. Then take the door frame out of the rough opening to finish the job up.
