Forum Title: Using closet door outside?
Can I use a closet door outside of the house? In my garage, the door that leads outside damaged in a lot of way. The wood is chipping, the window is cracked and there is a hole on the bottom half. The appearance of the door does not bother me because we hardly use the door and it is blocked anyways. Now I have a chance to replace the door for free. My sister has door from her closet that I can take. Is it legal to use a closet door that goes outside? Is there any drawback to it? How about water, should I coat it with something to protect against water? I know it is not as strong as the original doors but it does not matter because it is blocked off by something very heavy. The only thing that I am worried about is any legal issue. If we sell the house, would we have to replace it? I live in Sacramento, California.

Not a Pro..but I doubt you need a header, but you may need some sort of support, maybe metal angle? You don't want to fight with the bureaucrats.

The door leads from the garage to the outside. Is there any paint or anything that I can apply to protect the door from outside elements?

No, buy an exterior door, wood, fiberglass or metal- not an interior (probably hollow core construction) door. Be safe, G
