Oak veneer doors

I'm looking at replacing my interior doors that measure 45mm thick. The new doors measure at 35mm thick leaving a 10mm gap on the door stop. Is this just a matter of filling in with a wooden strip?

Many thanks

Hey, you could always remove the door stop and bring to the door leaving a few millimetres for paint so the door doesn't bind. If that makes sense.

Hi the best thing to do is remove the door stops carefully re hang the doors and then put the door stops back on to the new door

You can always get wider door stops to cover that extra 10mm you have there

Depends if the doors are fire doors, and if are need to be fire doors put back on to comply with building regulations.
