Door recommendations from basement to garage
Hi everyone, my first post here so I apologize if this is in the wrong section. Mods, please move if it is.
I bought a house a couple months ago and getting around to some of the improvements that are needed. The door from my basement to the garage is a wood door that seems to be a thick piece of wood cut into a door size, as in not really meant to be used for a door. I would like to replace it with a metal door for more security (also with a deadbolt). Where would I find a door to use? It would need to be a custom size. I have checked Lowes and Home Depot online and I did not see anything, perhaps I missed it though. I searched 'door' in all the forums and didn't see any similar questions.
Below is what was noted by the inspector prior to purchasing the home:
The entry door from the garage should be replaced with a metal or solid core wood door with a self -closing device. The entry door should also be fitted with a tight fitting gasket, so that the smoke and vapors canít seep into the home in the event of a garage fire. This should be done as fire safety measure.
