Q. Do the doors come with the hardware?|
Q. What kind of hardware do I get with these doors?
A. A slide bolt style latch and heavy duty 6" Tee Hinges are included with each panel.
Do I have to use your hardware?
A. You can request to receive doors without predrilled holes for the use of your own hardware. Due to the weight of these doors we recommend you purchase a heavy duty hinge and latch system.
Q. What is Reverse Fascia?
A. The "x" or T&G lumber will show when the doors are in the closed position only. If you want the "x" or fascia to show when the doors are both open, then ask for "reverse fascia top and bottom." If you want the "x" or fascia to show when the bottom door is closed and the top door is open, then request "reverse fascia top only."
Q. Are the latches and hinges attached to the doors when I receive them?
A. No, but the doors do come with all the necessary latching hardware and fasteners.
Q. How do I decide which side to put the hinges or latch on?
A. When you stand outside the door and visualize the door closed in the opening, are the latches on the right or left side? Are the hinges on the right or left side?
