Another door deal at Wickes today. It's for the 765mm one only, although it does state in the details that it's "Trimmable: Up to 20 mm" Delivery is £7.95 if you're buying one, but any more than that and it's free delivery (Spending over £75)

You can use Click & Collect for a single one, but I am guessing most wouldn't have a vehicle that would take a door

Just to reiterate, this is an Oak Veneer door

Had these fitted over 5 years ago (they were on a BOGOF offer at the time which made them approx 80 quid each so this is a great price for a single item) and they are excellent quality. My joiner said they were more trimmable than other oak veneer doors he'd previously fitted. Look lovely, very solid/heavy and cut out noise/cold from adjoining rooms really well (we have a Honeywell heating zoning system so the heat retention part is very important). Recommended (unless they have degraded the quality in the last 5 years of course).

PS Need a couple of coats of Danish Oil once fitted. Really enhances the colour and provides great protection.

Heat added.

Just checked and it was 3 for 2. This was June 2014.

Please don't paint them white.
Standard price for these in our shop is £74.10 inc VAT, and like most builders merchants we would offer you a discount and free delivery if buying 2+ all year round. Available in 2ft, 2'3", 2'6", 2'8" and 2'9" at that price. Danish oil is good on them but for the best (and longest lasting) finish you should look for Osmo Door Oil, it's the mutts. Not sure whether we are allowed to mention names of companies you work for so will leave this as an information post

They are certainly very meaty, but that's why we bought them as they seems good quality. Now, not sure what's best to do with them so they've sat in an empty bedroom... definitely need three hinges to be hung.Only other tip is measure each door frame for sizes. Stupidly we only measures one and it turns out two are much narrower and require a different size door. To get them hung you're probably looking 30-50 gbp each plus fittings so it gets pretty pricey when you are looking at a whole house




Ours have been up 5.5 years in a 40 year old bungalow and no sign of them coming off. Do you have very old door frames?

My tip would be ask a joiner, not a plasterer!

^ What bellboys said is pretty much what my recent research found as well.

@bellboys My research, fairly consistently, suggested being careful with danish oil as it might cause the veneer to lift.

The general consensus was to use Osmo Door Oil which, although pricey, is widely recommended - even by door manufacturers.

Also, apparently, Osmo PolyX-Oil Original, which is for wooden flooring and furniture, is essentially the same stuff as their Door Oil, but the advantage of this product is that it is available in larger tins so is more cost effective.

We ended up going for similar doors from Howdens because they had a slightly different design (the routed inlay is not so deep) and I have yet to treat them but I am going to chance my luck with Rustins Door Oil as it is much cheaper than the Osmo stuff - I have four doors to do so will do one door first and leave it for a month or so and then proceed with the other three if the first door is OK.

Can quickly concur with the above:

Osmo Door Oil is fine on these and gives an excellent finish. Ours have been in for 2 years and no delamination - even the bathroom one that gets tropical.

Used a microfibre cloth to apply 2 coats after a fine sand and gentle rub with fine wire wool in between coats.

Tip: For the recessed parts I used the brass pin from an electric plug wrapped in fine grade sandpaper.

Trimmable by 20mm (10mm each edge and top/bottom).

IMPORTANT: Inspect them carefully, we had to return 4 out of the inital 6, 3 out of the replacement 4 and 2 out of the replacement 3 until we got a decent set.

Yes they said only use wickes branded water based varnish.
Another thing, they are really, really, really heavy. You'll need some decent hinges and a strong back!

Yes, ideally want 3 of the ball bearing hinges with 8 screws in each. And make sure your door surround is stable enough.

You could but, IMHO, would negate the whole point of buying this door in the first place.

You would be better off buying the moulded version - Geneva White Grained Moulded Cottage Internal Door.

By doing this, you would achieve a similar effect whilst only spending about half the money.
A good deal for the price! Bear in mind though that if you want these (or any other Wickes products) delivered, you'll have to live within a 20 or 30 mile radius of the store to qualify, as my wife and I discovered when we tried to buy doors from them fairly recently...

Thanks for replying. The only issue with the moulded doors is they seem quite hollow, I would prefer solid, heavy doors and wasn't sure if they only came in oak and I could paint..

The moulded door won't be as sturdy as the veneered door in this deal but I think you'll be surprised in that it won't be as bad as you think.

I'd suggest visiting your local Wickes to compare the two.

Good luck on whatever you decide.

Please don't paint them white.
I have these doors. I was able to trim a lot more than 20mm from the bottom of the door.
Just fitted one of these last weekend in our lounge. Great door that I’ve undercoated/painted in satinwood. Nice looking door and with 2 coats of Crown trade satin wood have come up really nice. They are solid and have a good quality feel vs. The hollow type. Agree it’s a shame to paint them white but you end up with a very good quality solid door. 3 hinges at a must ! And two people needed to lift in/out of house when fitting.
We have these throughout the house, people always complement them.

Our experience as well. By no means our most eztravagent home improvement purchase but the one that consistently attracts the most praise.
Amazing high quality solid doors that looks great. Wouldnt paint them white though keep them oak and couple coats of varnish will suffice. Well worth the price.

If the frame is in good condition and properly attached to the walls then you will be fine. If it is rotten then you should replace it anyway, if it is not attached well then you should fix it properly anyway. I'd ask a joiner to fit them, he will let you know if the frame isn't up to it. If they have to do a couple of adjustments and fit locks, etc then a joiner will be doing OK to get 4 done in a day, which at rates round here means more like £50 each. With the hinges I would always use quality ball bearing type hinges for doors of this sort of weight, preferably 3 of them as well, which is going to be about £10

You can buy the same style door in white for about £20 from benchmarx. They are the kitchen hollow doors so easier to fit too.

I reckon you’re looking at closer to £100 each to get them fitted.

Yep,I had some Genoa oak doors recently and the quality was awful so I took them all back and got 6 from benchmarx for less money!
My joiner used these, 3 per door and still rock solid after 5.5 years! I believe Eclipse are highly thought of in the industry.

And i got a bit of criticism when I posted this site last time we were talking about doors (which was ages ago) so before I get it again on the life of my grandkids this site is nothing to do with me at all. I found it when looking for door handles (they also have a presence on Amazon), took a risk given the very cheap prices and, again, 5.5 years later look as good as when they were fitted. When I told my joiner how litt le I'd spent he scoffed, then I gave them to him and he looked puzzled whilst fitting them. He now also uses this supplier. Nuff said,

Their trustpilot reviews are impressive also.

These are the ones we got. Very heavy, really well made. Look very stylish. And cheap as chips.
