Cutting down an exterior door
OK…I desire a door that is energy efficient but trying to save money too. This door is will replace the old 3/4″ wood door that leads out onto the deck outside our bedroom.
The problem is the door is only 71″ tall and there isn’t room for much more than that…maybe a couple inches max. The current door is 28″ wide and I have room to go a bit wider.
My question is: Are there any stock entrance doors out there that I could cut down to make work without compromising the door or air sealing? I can order a custom door for about 600 bucks but would rather not spend that much. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I can cut a door down, anyone have any tips or strategies to make it successful?
Thanks and Thanks.
