Are your doors up to code?

If you’re wondering if the doors in your home are up to Oregon building code standards, we can help! There aren’t a lot of specific codes to follow when it comes to doors, but there are some specific things that your doors need to follow in order to be fire safe. If you have a home between your house and the garage, you’ll need a door that meets separation requirements, meaning the drywall needs to be approximately ½” and if there is a living space above the garage, the ceiling would need to have 5/8” of drywall. The door doesn’t need to be any fire-rated specific door, as some home inspectors might tell you. However, the door does need to be either a solid wood door that is no less than 1 and 3/8 inches thick, or a solid or honeycomb core steel door.
