    Hi,

    I'm looking to replace my internal doors within my 1930's property. Due to a loft conversion we also require these to be firedoors.

    4 of my door frames (not load bearing walls) are short and are 188cm tall meaning we can't hang standard height doors and are not able to cut 10cm's of fire doors.

    I am trying to gather what is involved in this job? I obviously need to have door frames and architrave removed. who would be best to do this job? is this a diy job or do I require a builder? If so in what region would you expect this to cost per door?

    Many thanks

    I'm not sure of the construction of your fire doors but would it be possible to take 5cm, (2" to us oldies lol), off the top and 5cm off the bottom to get the necessary fit?

    you aren't allowed to cut anything off the top of an ordinary certified firedoor. You can cut specified small amounts off the other edges.

    You could probably order one made-to-measure though.
