What are Door Frames

When framing a door opening it’s important to work carefully and accurately. If the frame doesn’t fit perfectly your door may jam, stick or become difficult to use. Conversely, a well-fitted door frame will help reduce drafts, keeping you snug and warm. 

Choosing A Door Frame

Our timber frames are made to match our doors, so you can create a consistent appearance throughout your home. Choose from internal door frames in oak veneered mdf, or select external door frames crafted from hardwood and oak. Prefinished wood is ideal if you want to install straight away but unfinished works well for those who want to paint or stain their frame to match a door with a unique finish or colour.

We stock a wide range of interior and exterior door frames at competitive prices. Our exterior door frames and kits are supplied flat pack complete with weather-seals and water bars. Mortice and tenon joints and are offered in sizes to suit most standard exterior door types. We’re confident that we can help you find a frame to fit whatever the size of your door, as our range covers sizes to suit all standard doors. Our door frames can be easily trimmed to the specific door size if necessary. We can also offer door frame screens up to 3052mm wide and up to 2360mm high, so please get in touch if you can’t see what you need online.

What Size Door Frame Do I Need?

To determine the size of frame you need, first measure the height of the brickwork opening at either side and in the centre. Next, measure the width of the brickwork at the top, middle and bottom of the opening. Take the average of each set of measurements as the size for the opening. Deduct approx. 10mm (0.4”) from the average height and width. This defines the height and width of door frame you will need.
