Forum Title: how to install pre-hung door in a stairway?
Hi guys, I'm wondering if there's an easy way to put a pre-hung door in a stairway. Will I actually have to cut out the drywall first? Or can I just attach the door to the studs through the existing drywall? Thanks a lot!

If it's a regular two piece mortised hinge you can pull the hinge pins one at a time while the door is closed. If you used dish detergent as a lubricant just wash it off with water. I use candle wax on squeaky hinges without any discoloring.

ok thanks. My opening is 35 wide, so plenty of space to add additional studs. I'm installing the door at the top of the stairs, so there should be studs there behind the drywall already. Thank you very much for your help.
