Cut Down A Fiberglass Door?


Anyone done it?

I've cut wooden doors, metal-skinned, storm doors and whatnot, but never had occasion to try a fiberglass. Now I have a guy who thinks he wants one for an odd size.

Workable? How are they constructed internally?

Normally when I have one that need cut down that is what they recommend to use. I would think it should be fairly do able for you. Think maybe a finer blade to do it.

Oh, yay. I've played the Bing Crosby White Christmas dance before.

I do believe I'll try to talk him out of it.
