Door size advice

I have a old door which measurement is 6,8 x2,6 approx

What door would you recommend i use

The standard 6,6 x 2,6 with a peice of wood at the bottom


Buy a 6,8 x2,8 door and trim it down

2 Answers from MyBuilder Carpenters & Joiners

if you decide to buy a 6ft 8" door you can only trim down to size if it is a solid door and take equal amounts off the top and bottom assuming it will be a panelled door otherwise you be cutting into the hollow sections and will weaken the door considerably,so would be inclined to glue and plant on extra timber to the bottom of a 6ft 6"x 2ft 6" door,use external glue if it is an outside door
