For what it's worth (about what you paid for it) I say out:

Easier to install the flanges from the outside.

Apart from that, no difference in performance.

Inside flanges have a different cosmetic effect, which can be better if you are good at cutting the door.
I like the look of the flanges on the inside. I figure you don't need much in order to create an overlap. I was figuring on using my plasma to cut the doors so they're nice and clean. In addition, I can use some bullet hinges to have a really clean look.

However, if the cut does not go well, then I'll be flanging the outside. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
