Interior Door Manufacturer


Hi all,

I'm going with Solid Core Molded Raised 2 Panel with arch top panel interior doors for my new house. Typical size is 3' Wide x 8' High.

Lowe's sell Reliabilt Door and Jamb for $165.
Home Depot and local wood trim supply house sell Masonite Door and jamb for $205.

Does anyone know if there is a difference between these doors or good reason to go with the more expensive door?

thanks

What are the Reliabilt doors made of, wood? The masonite doors are usually the less-costly, while are a great door once painted (they come pre-primed as well). Masonite doesn't stand for any abuse compared to wood, so if you have kids running things into them you probably want to go with wood.

These are molded doors. They are not wood doors.

Is that eight foot dimension a fact or a guess. Typical interior doors aren't eight foot tall but it is not impossible to get them. Expect them to cost more than a standard door and you won't likely be finding them in a rack at a home center. Eight foot tall doors would be special order doors. Do you mean 36" X 80"?
