hi got doors measured up by joiner he says i need
4doors x 762x2040
4 doors x 812x2040.
seen doors in b and q that are 2032 x 813.

would these doors be ok, although for the 762 width may have to cut off an inch each side.

we are replacing door checsk and in couple of cases frames too, can we maybe just get door frames made to accept doors ?

:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

are they flush doors or solid wood panelled doors? have you got a pic?

what are "door checsk"?
it appears to be a panelled door in solid pine, so it can be reduced
though the stiles (side pieces) are relatively narrow so it will be weaker after cutting it.

note that the advert says "(H) 1981 x (W) 762 x (D) 34mm" so it seems as if it is already narrow enough
