  1. I just had a couple of fire door linings replaced as they were not deep enough after I overboarded the stud wall they are set in. The original linings were made with 30mm thick timber, and I only realised this evening that the new linings are made of 20mm thick timber. One of the doors was also replaced with a heavier fire door , about 45kg. The frames seem sturdy and the doors close fine, but I’m concerned 20mm isn’t thick enough long term for such heavy doors. Also there is now a 4cm gap on one side of the doors filled with foam which doesn’t seem very fire safe…. What do you think?
  2. Hi all, I hope someone can help. Recently noticed that the door that was recently fitted by our builder looks like it's bursting out of the wall! The builder said that it's just not finished and that the trim around the edge still needs to go on, but my suspicion is that they've put too much expanding foam into the side of the door frame. The render appears to bow outwards. Any views on this would be greatly appreciated.
  3. 102mm, well done. Pass Go, collect £100. Its not a deliberately stupid question. Everywhere we go , I've recently been surreptitiously measuring door widths. I try hard not to let Debbie see me do so - not entirely successfully. Door widths are important - but 102mm difference? Does so little make so much difference? Why not 964? Thinking about bedrooms upstairs, why would I choose 864 over 762? Yep, I'm of a certain age, yep, the usual is happening.
  4. Ah the wonders of online user reviews! Perusing the Wickes and B&Q websites to get a feel for door lining kits (I'm aiming for the basic pine which I will prime and paint white) and the reviews paint a picture of twisted, warped, knotty, badly sized timber. Is this a DIY-shed problem, or am I just as likely to encounter this at the BM? I'm not convinced on the solidity of MDF for door linings- I guess I'd need plenty of packers (I have a 45mm gap to play with inc the width of the linings themselves)- how well do the hinge screws bite into the MDF? I only actually need three of these- maybe I should just do a bit of cherry-picking?
