Try Magnet joinery or howden joinery, they generally stock alot more sizes than the high street diy stores.

Have you checked that the door sizes are not metric? Standard metric internal doors are 2040 mm high x 426,526,626,726,826 or 926mm wide. Some ranges are also available in 2000 x 807mm size. They are also 40mm thick as opposed to 35mm for imperial sized doors. You'll probably find they are only available to order from a builders merchants.

A good joiner will be able to make individual doors to fit. The cost will be more than standard size doors from DIY stores.

Hello there at plenty of people wo do doors special order to size but cost alot more. The size you are after might not be too uncommon as you think as most DIY places don't really keep a full size range in stock. Try a local magnet or howdens.

Hi meadkidd,

Council houses usually have 2040mm high door's(6ft 8"), rather than our standard 1981mm high door's (6ft 6"...if this is what you mean?

Google those height's of door, you should get loads from B and Q, Wickes in both size's etc...your doors are possibly trimmed slighty, so could be under those heights slightly, but new doors can be trimmed down.

Kind regards

Mark

try asking a local joinery or post it as a job on my builder and someone should be able to make a set of doors for you no problem they will be more expensive , failing that would it be possible to make the doorway bigger and fit a new lining ?
