The choosing of Internal Doors is a very personal thing, something that requires careful consideration. The following tips are here to help you find the perfect door.

Our many years of installing internal doors and numerous meetings with customers has taught us that customers are more likely to choose a door based on quality and style than price.

We have always tried to guide customers through the buying process by thinking firstly about what they intend to do with decoration. For example, why buy oak doors or mahogany doors if you intend to paint it. To do so would be a waste of your money as there is virtually nothing to be gained unless the door is only available in a style within either our oak, mahogany or pine door categories.

The Internal Doors made in timber (veneered on solid cores) are likely to be more sound proof than hollow doors although this large range is mainly in the white primed doors section and are therefore easily identified. Although some internal doors may be hollow we can guarantee the construction is very stable. Hollow doors may only have a small frame and a dedicated hinge side but they have never let down any of our customers, veneered doors are just as reliable and great value with style for a low cost.

We have built our extensive range of Oak doors, Mahogany doors and Pine doors over a number of years to the point where we are confident of having something to suit all tastes. All Internal wooden doors are veneered on solid cores and while these cores vary in construction with some as laminated timber and some as a composite construction all are, without exception, extremely well manufactured.

The newest Internal door categories within the site have been created to allow you to find the more unusual metric sizes of doors. Metric size doors are a particular height, width and thickness, all of which are 2040mm high and thicker at 40mm; they vary from 526mm to a maximum of 926mm in width, increasing by 100mm each time.

Our experience will help when it comes to some of your doors being an odd size. We can advise you which internal doors can be cut and by how much, both in height and width. On top of this advice we can confirm which doors are now FSC registered, this registration results in a safe chain of custody to guarantee the controlled sourcing of the materials supplied in the manufacture of those doors.

The addition of internal pvc doors or fully prefinished doors  allows us to guide customers to door types and styles that will require absolute no decoration. Some customers prefer these products so they can avoid further work after having the doors fitted.

Fire doors are becoming more readily available as panel, flush or glazed doors. All (FD30) 1/2 hour fire rated doors are 45mm thick and have a solid core, please remember however that these fire door doors require 3 hinges which must also be to a certain fire rated standard. A more limited range of (FD60) 1 hour rated fire doors are available or may be able to be sourced, these internal doors are 54mm thick and very heavy; we would advise using 4 hinges on these doors.

Advice and help tips on fitting interior doors:

The information below includes advice and door fitting tips relating to accurate measuring and installation of doors and door frames prior to the fitting process. There is also more detailed information and videos relating to the fitting of timber and PVC doors throughout our help pages.

Have you recently bought one of our excellent internal doors? We have provided some advice set out below to show how they are fitted but if you're at the stage of thinking about buying follow this link for how to measure an interior door.

Accurate measuring and cutting is required when you fit a door, please refer to the following DIY pages after reading these paragraphs for further advice. If you are not the most experienced of DIY enthusiasts it is advisable to ask someone experienced to assist you.

Timber doors and/or frames, you will need to check that your door is or can be one of our standard sizes which are regularly used, if it is not, either refer to your preferred choice of door within our web site, email for advice on altering the standard door to size or choose to purchase a Bespoke (made to size) door.

We can, in most instances, offer an alternative idea before you go to the expense of buying a bespoke door, the Standard sizes we use for Exterior Doors and Interior Doors are numerous; please refer to our web site.

You can in most cases cut solid timber Exterior doors to fit a smaller size opening by up to 20mm (3/4") from each of the four edges. Please allow the new door to sit somewhere dry overnight to acclimatise.

Do not stand the door against an external wall as this can encourage it to twist or bow, always try and decorate the door before fitting and choose a dry day to fit it.

Measuring doors and Frames; When measuring either your interior or exterior door ignore the current door size and follow this advice and any relevant advice offered throughout our DIY pages.

Width: Measure each door between the frame at the top, the middle and the bottom.

Tell us or choose a door(s) to suit the widest size, always remember that you are responsible for making sure that the widest size can be adjusted by you to suit the narrow area of any part of the opening without compromising the stability or affecting the look of the door.

Height: Measure from the carpet/floor covering to the underside of the timber lintol.

Thickness: Now and only now do you measure the door to find out how thick it is at present, with Interior doors you may have to compromise and fit a slightly thinner door, this does not normally present any problems.

REMEMBER WHEN MEASURING FRAMES; The above advice may be different if ordering a door and frame, always check the overall outside sizes of the frame against the overall inside sizes of the frame and choose the correct combination of those sizes to suit the opening and to ensure the frame will go in to the opening, this may involve you ordering a frame that is slightly smaller than the current frame, now measure the frame breadth, ie; from the inside face to the outside face, you can always add a sub frame or concealed plates to make a frame fit the width or height but it can be very difficult and sometimes impossible to adjust the frame if you have ordered it too big.

Beware: Do not assume all interior doors in your house are the same size or thickness, check them all.

Please Note: The DIY advice provided is only a guideline for the installation of interior or exterior doors. We cannot accept liability for any mishap, injury or damage caused to you, your property or a third party while using any of the above tips and advice.

All our advice is offered freely but you should always take care to ensure that your interpretation of the advice is sensible before proceeding with any project however small.

See the above DIY info and read the following detail for more advice, especially if ordering or fitting a timber frame.  

1. Stand the door in front of the frame. If the door overlaps the frame or is tight between the door and the frame, then mark with a pencil where the adjustments are required.

There should be a 2mm or 3mm gap between the door and the frame on both sides and the top.

If you do need to cut the door down to size, keep in mind that you need to cut all four sides of the door equally whenever possible to retain an accurate shape or pattern if the door is panelled.

2. For small adjustments in size, use a plane to shave the wood. Always start at the outside of any door edge and plane in towards the middle of the door thickness.

If you need to make a more substantial adjustment it is advisable to use a panel or circular saw.

Please be aware that circular saws are quite capable of (jamming) kicking back. It should be obvious, but isn't always, you should never place your hand anywhere near the side or the front of the circular saw blade.

3. If you intend to use the existing hinge recesses in the frame, the positions need to be marked on the door frame.

Position and support the door at an angle to the upright and mark on it where the tops and bottoms of the hinge recesses are for each hinge.

4. If you intend to use new hinges you will need to mark their positions on the frame and the door.

Exterior doors should be hinged between 125-150mm (5-6 inches) from the top and 175-230mm (7-9 inches) from the bottom of the door.

Exterior doors are heavier and require a third hinge in the middle of the door. If the door is made of hardwood then it is best to use brass hinges sized 100mm (4 inches), 125mm (5 inches) or 150mm (6 inches). This site sells hinges in single quantities to allow you to buy as many or as few as you require.

5. Care should be taken when chiselling out the recesses for the hinges, the best way is to (using a small saw) cut across the thickness of the door every 3/4" or 20mm and only to the position which your hinges will cover.

This action prevents the door from splitting beyond your hinge position.

Always make pilot holes when screwing into wood as this will prevent the wood from splitting.

To make the screws go in easier, rub the screw thread with a bar of soap.

Make sure that the hinges fit their recesses snugly.

6. Once the hinges are attached to the door, screw each hinge into position using one screw only.

Check that the door opens and closes properly before screwing in the remaining screws. If it does not, then unscrew and make minor adjustments to the position of the hinge, within the frame.

Repeat this procedure until the door position is correct.
