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.

I would highly recommend you go to Seal Supplies in SHeffield.
Just off Queens road by the ice rink

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.
