Interior Louvered Doors


I am putting in louvered doors and rally would like to know what is the best constructed louvered door on the market today?

If anything I would like to get them from Home Depot or Lowe's.

They don't have to be high dollar doors, but very will constructed.

They will be painted white.

your best bet is to buy doors that are constructed out of solid wood as opposed to hollow core versions.. they hold up better and dont warp as easily..

I would like to know who makes quality solid louvered bi-fold doors?

I do not like hole doors, to me there is no quality in a hole door.

Has anyone brought these doors at Home Depot or Lowes?

What did you like and dislike about these doors?

This is more or less an oxymoron. JUMBO shrimp.....

You seek quality, yet go to a store(s) notorious for giving the least amount of quality?

It would seem to me that your best bet at this point in time would be to go to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore and get good, solid used doors and install them. That's what I did, at a cost of $10.00 to $15.00 each door. Wrecking yards may help too.

The ones I got are all solid and like new. Small dings are easily repaired/hidden.

I know I am behind times since retiring so with that I ask this question, do they make hollow core louvered doors? That seems like a waste of time to me.

Yes they do.

That is why I am looking for solid doors. I agree with you 100 per cent on this.
