bi-fold door question

I am having a problem with my closet. I want to put up some bi-fold doors but I have a wierd size. My opening is 45 1/2 by 79. is it possible to get 2 24" doors and cut them down to fit? also what should be my exact door measurements? TIA

bi-fold door question

It sounds like the original doors were sliders though the height is off. Cutting raised panel or louvered bi-fold doors is problematic in that the stiles and rails are really too thin to reduce anymore. Flush doors can be trimmed but since they're hollow cored, there's not alot of meat on their frame either. But you can rip down one side and peel off the veneer material off the wood frame and reinsert it into the door, glue and clamp it.
If this sounds like an issue, you can order cusom made doors .

they were sliders but someone changed them and put luan doors up as the sliders. the only bad thing is you cant open them because they are too wide. what would be the best alternative?
