Need a carpenter - broken wooden door

Post by EveL » Thu, 08 Jan 2009 12:28 pm

Hi,
We have damage to one of our wooden bedroom doors. It's just chip board and has a hole in the one side.
Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced, English speaking carpenter to fix it for us.

thanks.

Hollow core doors are best to just be replaced. Just look up doors in the yellowpages and give a few of them a call.

Sounds like a heck of a party or spat took place! :wink:

Evel - alternatively you could repair it - any chance you can post a pic. of the damage. I'll be happy to see if I could do it for a bottle of wine or two for you.

Cheers, P

Ours is a hollow core door but i was hoping for a repair instead of a whole new door. Will take a look at the YP though, thanks.
And it was a party I assure you! :-)

the thing is this, you get it repair for maybe say $50. The next time it gets damaged, another $50. Consider changing it for a piece of mind with $150 +/-
free time? do something!!
