Internal doors - which supplier?

Postby RogerM » 13 Jun 2018, 18:59

I have 14 internal doors to replace, probably with something like this. I could make my own, but 14 of them? I'd lose the will to live, and I don't think I'd save much. Howdens refuse to take the order because I'm not trade! Are there any suppliers you prefer? Any that you would stay clear of? As usual, I'm aiming to buy at the elbow of the price/quality curve!

Howdens have given me a cash account in the past. It might be worth calling on your local outlet.

The guys in Plymouth just look down their noses at you. When I wanted enough kitchen units to fill 3 normal kitchens they just kept saying get your builder to ask for a quote. We only deal with trade. In the end I did my own thing - all detailed here of course.

My BIL bought Jeld-wen white primed 4 panel doors for around £60 each and they were rubbish.
I had to shorten them by 22mm and the internal frame depth was only 22mm so cutting that off reposed the internal cardboard interior filling and the was a real fiddle to re-fit the piece I cut off to make up the integrity of the door again.
No glue between horizontal and vertical components just one staple per joint. just awful.

Selco do similar doors for similar prices but looking at the map they don't have branches down your way.

They are trade only but seem to give a card to anyone including me.

most if not all the B&Q internal doors you can take 4mm of each long edge or 6mm of the bottom :eusa-snooty:
