Default Rough opening for a 48" X 80" closet door?

Anyone happen to know the rough opening for a sliding closet door listed as a 48" x 80" ? - I want to do the rough framing but do not have the door & won't get it for 2 more weeks. I want to start the framing tomorrow. I looked on the website and it does not list the RO - Is it 48 x 80?

Thx.
LK

If it's a typical door and frame, the rough opening would be approximately 50 1/2" x 81 1/2" I believe. It's been a while since my framing days.

And have some long, sawed shims handy and you should be fine, imho.

I replaced my sliding doors with bi-folds. You gain much more clear opening.

Is there anyway you can measure at the local store? They usually list the rough opening required on the product.

52" X 82" you can use 3/4" x 3 1/2" ( 1x4 ) to take up extra space. Not all bi folds are the same. Also not all carpenters get things squared properly. This should keep you safe & allow for any errors without getting in trouble with any trim options.
Be sure to put the header board in first to adjust hieght first.

And I figure that you will need to trim the height at the bottom at least on one side or you will have a gap on one or the other side at the bottom if it 100 percent level up top.

As-hole didn't trim ours!!

Many years ago we had our house framed in then finished it ourselves. Believe me, things can be out of plumb, out of square, and out of level. There are probably more people out there building houses that don't quite know what they are doing than do. Give the opening the extra clearance to save possible aggravation later. I found that the foundation contractor was VERY poor on simple blueprint reading and the framers weren't a whole lot better. Time for some good apprenticeships in the building trades again.
