    Good afternoon folks! I'm want to order some interior doors and had planned to get pre-hung. The walls are pre-1970 2x4's (3-5/8" lumber) with 1/2" drywall on each side, for a total wall thickness of 4-5/8". All the non-custom pre-hung doors I'm finding have 4-9/16" jambs. I assume the extra...

    Hello, I just purchased and had installed closet doors. They have primer on the front and back, but not on the edges. The installer warned me about warping and getting them painted ASAP. I am getting two separate suggestions from painters. One wants to remove the doors, take them to his shop...
  3. Windows and Doors
    I was wondering if anyone has had success in contacting Masonite Customer Service. I ordered 15 pre-hung 5-panel solid core doors and ALL of the prehung doors are total rubbish. Not only that but when ordering the build and ship time was supposed to be 3 weeks. After many deferments they came...

    Hello fellow painters! Looking for some advice on new construction please. In my newly-finished basement, I have installed 'primed' 2 panel doors. In contrast to the trim and jambs, they are not nearly as white. I will be painting a SLIGHT off-white semi-gloss oil on both and i'm wondering if...

    I'm looking to get unbiased feedback on a project that was recently completed (by a hired general contractor). He replaced 1 single door and a set of double doors on adjacent bedrooms. I have my opinions, but to start I'll let the photos speak for themselves. I'd love to hear your honest...

    We have been remodeling an older home for what seems like forever. We are trying to put in as many newer things as possible, including new 6 panel doors. Our problem for the day is...the newer style doors are 1 3/8 thick and the old door was 1 1/4 which means the hinges and the striker are now...

    i'm planning on installing an 18"x80" closet door, with an r/o of 20"x82". the floors are less than level here, and in fact within the proposed opening, drops 3/4". here's my question: is it better to measure for the header from the higher side of the opening and deal with the gap, or should i...

    Hi All, I want to install some new interior doors in my home. I was making some measurements when I noticed that the wall studs were 3 5/8", not 3 1/2". Have any of you come across this? The jambs on current pre-hung doors are 4 1/2". With the wall studs being 3 5/8", the drywall surface...
  9. Painting
    Bought a 1955 fixer-upper almost 2 years ago. I want to refinish 5 old interior doors that have the original stain and varnish on them. I would like to sand them and use some kind of semi-transparent dark golden oak color glaze. I am hoping for something kind of simple and one step. I keep...

    We are constructing our own home and are currently installing all electrical outlets and lights. We were told that interior doors are to be installed before sheetrock. Does anyone know which order to do this step? We have our doors.
