Interior Door Repair


I'm looking for some ideas on how to cover chipping on the bottom of my interior doors. I would like to cover it with some decorative metal strips (not
kickplates). Anybody know where I could purchase this metal stripping. I had no
luck at local building centers or internet. Thanks.

If they are chipping that bad....they must be pretty cheap doors....I think I would be inclined to just replace....interior doors are pretty cheap.

Changing the interior door will probably be the most prudent solution as was suggested by ddawg16 & joecaption in previous posts. There is an online company I found that can give you an online quote for decorative sheetmetal. You can visit their site here.
If you use them, can you post feedback here so we know the whole story?
Good luck!

Thanks for the replies ddawg16, joecaption and InspectorZo-The rest of door is in perfect shape except for the small area on the bottom. I was hoping to save them with minimal investment. If need be, I will take your advice and replace the door. Thanks InspectorZo for the website. I'll check it out and post the results if
if use them.
