Wooden Doors and Frames and archetreves...

Postby Leeroy81 » Thu Sep 10, 2009 8:03 pm

I wonder if any one can help??
Ive just bought my 1st house and am in a bit of confused state.I am in the middle of replacing the interior doors downstairs with new Clear Pine doors.I need a pine frame 170mm if that means anything to anyone but can only get one up to 150mm,unless i get one espically made which could be costly??

Ive been given the advice that white deal is mostly used to replace a pine frame,but have also heared rumours about red deal,but im really confused and not sure wat to do,can someone help is any of this true?

Thanks Leeroy 81[/b]

If you are able to fit doors you should be able to make door linings of a suitable width from planed timber. You are unlikely to get a choice of timber type but try a number of different suppliers to see what quality timber they stock. It may have to be specially machined for you.
