We have a fully equipped mill shop to modify and customize any door to meet the needs of you project. Wether it's mortising hinges into an existing door slab, or cutting down and re-railing a door to an odd size, we have you covered.
When you visit our showroom, you will need to provide us with the opening sizes in order for us to best accommodate your framework. Getting the rough opening size right the first time, will save you from frustration, when installing your doors. Framing rough opening sizes are really quite simple. Just add 2" to the width of the actual door size. You should add 2-1/2" to the height of the actual door. This will give you room to space the door frame off the sub-floor.
So, if you have a bedroom door that is 30" wide (which is considered a 2/6 or 2'-6" door) just add 2" to the width and frame it 32" wide. The height is 80" (which is considered 6/8 or 6'-8") add 2-1/2" to the actual door height and frame it 82-1/2" high.
Rough Opening Chart:
2/0 DOOR = 2/2 R.O.
2/4 DOOR = 2/6 R.O.
2/6 DOOR = 2/8 R.O.
3/0 DOOR = 3/2 R.O.
* NOTE ALL R.O. WIDTHS ARE 2" WIDER AND 2-1/2" TALLER (82 1/2")
A panel door is a classic style. It usually has three or four horizontal rails and three vertical stiles. The spaces between them are filled with thinner panels. Decorative molding (or some representation of it) called "sticking" surrounds each panel. The result is a richly textured look that is at home in both traditional and modern settings.
A flush door is a simple flat slab. It is usually the least expensive choice. If the surface is a hardwood veneer (usually birch or oak), a flush door can be stained, but other materials usually look best painted. Flush doors blend well with contemporary settings, but may look out of place in a traditional home. Interior flush doors are often hollow core, while exterior flush doors have a solid core and may have a metal or fiberglass face rather than wood veneer.
A pair of French doors adds a charming touch as well as an extra-wide doorway opening. These doors are almost always traditional in design. Often they have glass panels. They are most commonly used as exterior patio doors, but interior French doors can make a stunning passageway between rooms.
Many older homes have interior pocket doors, which slide into the wall when fully opened. They allow you to completely open the doorway without taking up any floor space. Pocket doors are making a comeback; many styles are available, single and double. A pocket door requires wall space that cannot have electrical or plumbing lines running through it.
For a closet that is 6 feet wide or wider, a pair of bifold doors is the most popular choice. Each door takes up about half the swinging space of a hinged door. Bifolds can be flush, paneled, or louvered.
Somewhat less common are bypass doors. These operate much like sliding patio doors but are far lighter in weight. They are generally flush doors.Type your paragraph here.
