    I am looking to replace a [rotting] wooden door to an outbuilding to my homes, and was looking to fit a low [or preferably no!] maintainance UPVC door.

    The problem I have is that the door is an unusual size - 69in [1.75m] x 29.5in [0.75m], and so the door would have to be made to size.

    As the door is only for an outbuilding, I only need a fairly plain and basic door [but still with reasonable degree of security fitted], like a domestic back door would fit the bill.

    Would anyone know of anyone who manufactures 'made to measure' basic utility UPVC doors [or maybe manufactures and installs] in the Sheffield Rotherham area at a reasonable price.

    Alternatively, I would consider replacing the existing door with another good quality wooden door, assuming that I could get one that is the right size, either off the peg, or made to measure, if necessary.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Youre in luck Frank...

    Another Sheffielder who has fitted a fair few custom sized UPVC doors and windows ;)

    I would highly recommend you go to Seal Supplies in SHeffield.

    Ive bought quite a few windows and doors through them and they are excellent quality and a fair price.

    You Will pay more for a custom door than a standard size from B and Q though...

    One of a few I found from a Google search:-

    http://www.u-fit.co.uk

    I have in the past run through the pricing page and they do seem to be very competitive, but I have yet to find any opinions from people that have used them about quality.
