Our door runs at a slight slant and is 25mm above the floor at one end and 15mm above the floor at the other.

To accommodate the carpet we want, we need to shave a bit off the end of the door where it hangs closest to the floor, so that it is at least 20mm above the floor at all points.

What is best way to do this, without taking the door off the hinges? Door is a 1 hour fireproof wooden door.

*reason for not taking door off hinges is that it is a soundproofed room and we donít want to disturb any of the door fittings etc.

You will need to mark the door and remove, cut down/plane down and rehang.

So no other way to increase the gap e.g. sand it down?

from what I've read you could use a multicutter and cut in from both sides of the door to give a good finish perhaps...pinenot icon_smile.gif

Can you give me a weblink to the appropriate tool for the job?

e.g. from screwfix or equivalent?

Can't be soundproof if you are running a carpet under the door?

You really need to remove the door to plane it down.

I can think of no reason why removing the door will affect the sound proofing.
