Interior door extensionn kits?

We are changing from carpet to laminate plank flooring . After removing the carpet down the hallway, we see our closet doors are shorter and will need to be extended down about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches. Do you have any extension kits?

Thank you,

Christine

It is common for the doors in a home to have a gap of about an inch or two at the ottom - especially if there is a central heating system.  This will allow air to circulate into the return and out the vents preventing mold and stale air from accumulating in rooms.

 

One solution to "extending" a door might be an adjustable Vinyl Door Bottom that directly attaches to the bottom of the door.

Remember that the laminate will reduce the gap.

 

Unless the doors are painted, there's probably not a practical way to extend the bottoms.  Replace the doors or learn to live with them.
