Technically yes but it's a can of worms, the slab has to be measured very accurately on width and height, hinges need to be routered in the exact same place.....to the millimetre, the locking strip on the new door needs to be the same as the old otherwise you need to move the keeps on the frame to suit the new door so then you'll have holes, it's just a complete nightmare, for the sake of another 100 quid for a frame it's just not worth the faff

Even a frame with a window? This is my one - see how it’s discoloured compared to the rest of it? Might have a go at painting it - nothing to lose I suppose.

They are two separate frames, the plastic strip over the joint of the two is just clipped onto an aluminum coupler so they will split if needs be, however if you did decide to paint it there are companies that spray on site in situ if you don't want to do it yourself
