I have a sun room on my house and it has a door that opens outward and is only a thin metal storm door of moble home door.
I want to put a regular exterior door on but was wondering if the door could be open outward. All the other exterior doors always open inward it seems but for more room and convenience I would like the door to open outward. Would that be alright if not why Not?
Re: exterior door?
Doors can open out if you want. If security is an issue then use non-removable hinge pins.
Doors that open out are a little less protected from rain. Drip caps can be used above the door to direct water away from the top of the door.
