How do I determine door swings?
There is a drawing at the top of our printable quote form that shows RH (right hand) and LH (left hand) swings. Match your doors to this drawing. For interior doors we do not care whether the door swings into or out of a room. Just match the door to the drawing.
How big should my rough openings be?
We recommend adding 2" to the door width and 2-1/2" to the door height for your rough opening. For example a 30" wide x 80" high door will require a 32" wide x 82.5" high rough opening. A 60" wide double door (2 doors at 30" each) with ball catches will require a 62" wide rough opening. If a double door is going to require a t-astragal you will need to add the astragal thickness to the rough opening also. This is will be an addtional 1/2" to 3/4".
Can I order my interior doors online?
No, you will need to fax, email or call in your door list. We will then create a custom quote for your job and fax or email it back for your review.
How will my doors be delivered?
Your doors and jambs will be carefully stacked, shrink wrapped and banded onto a pallet. Wood sides and a top will then be constructed around the doors for additional protection. A nationwide carrier, usually R&LCarriers, ABF Freight or Estes Trucking will contact you the day before delivery. You will need man power to dis-assemble the crate and unload the doors 1 by 1 out of the truck, unless you have a forklift.
What does the optional shipping insurance cover?
If you decline the optional shipping insurance you will be on your own to recover damages from the freight company. If you take the optional shipping insurance and you follow the delivery acceptance instructions and prove to us that the doors were indeed damaged or missing before you unloaded them we will replace at no charge.
I don't understand the differences between all of your different door series, how do I decide which door series is best for me?
We are distributors not manufacturers. Our different door series are actually different manufacturers.
We distribute doors for about 10 different door manufacturing companies ranging from a small father and son Amish shop (D-Series) to Nationally known companies (K-Series and C-Series). Each door manufacturer has different methods of door construction and different capabilities. Some make solid wood doors, some make veneer doors and some make hybrid doors which have both solid wood and veneer.
The door manufacturers we work with have been carefully selected and time tested by us for quality, craftsmanship, timeliness and willingness to stand behind their products.
Because we have such a large selection of doors it can be a little confusing trying to figure everything out from the website, so don't hesitate to call us for help.
