Slab Door Install and Finishing

Updating and finishing a solid wood slab door for a storage room

A slab door, also known as a blank door, is a flat, unframed piece of wood that does not come with any holes, hardware, or trim. A hanging door, on the other hand, is one that comes pre-hung in a frame with the necessary hardware, trim, and weather-stripping already installed. This project was on a slab door, which is a great choice for those who want to customize the door to their home— it's just trickier. At Goliath, we specialize in installing and repairing all types of interior doors, including slabs.

This customer purchased a door slab and needed it to be installed for his shed. For this job, we had to add hinges, mortise pockets for the hinges, as well as the holes and mortise for the handle and lock. We also had to trim the overall height of the door to fit the doorway. Even the smallest mistake can cause the door to be misaligned or to not fit properly, which can lead to costly repairs or replacements. Installing a slab door is a job best left to skilled professionals. After installation we sanded, primed, painted and installed finishing hardware.

At Goliath, our team of experienced technicians are highly trained in the keep going installation of both slab and hanging doors. We understand the importance of proper measurements and installation techniques to ensure the door functions properly and looks great.
