What type of door do I have, and where do I find a replacement?

Hello, all,

Could anyone be so kind as to tell me what type of wood my door is, and where I go about finding a replacement? Thanks

Looks like a 4 panel knotty pine door. It could be Alder but it really doesn't look like it to me. Maybe others will know. Larry is from Georgia, he might recognize whats popular down south. The 2 hinges (rather than 3) would lead me to believe its mfg by a low end door company. Doubtful that anyone would stock anything like that. 6 panel is far more popular. But you should be able to order a door like that from almost any lumber yard or box store. With or without the knots. Also available on ebay.

Looks like pine to me with a red stain applied.

It does appear to be an interior solid pine (knotty) door. Note the two hinges rather than 3. I think the big thing is the stain, as Marksr indicated. It may be a bear to replicate. Box stores won't carry it. You may have to go to a lumber yard or a door company to see if it can be ordered.

It also looks like the doors have really had a lot cut off the bottom. They appear to be about 78" tall, judging by the width of that bottom rail and the distance from the floor to the bottom hinge.

Yeah, Becky, I was wondering what part of Alabama he was from. Good eyes, Brant. I wasn't watching for that, but it does appear the door is altered. Note the lockset, as well. DIYJC, why do you need a replacement? Are you worried about that crack in the panel?

Thanks, all.

I posted in a UK forum and someone advised me. I think I can buy the door from anywhere, but it will need to be stained. It seems that's the deal with the other doors. I want a replacement as it just looks ugly with that crack in it.

I'm in the UK, not US. I've visited your great country several times and love it and it's people, if that gets me off the hook? :Peeping On U2:

You might be able to take some colored putty and make the crack less noticeable. The off the shelf red putty may or may not be the right color, it isn't uncommon to need to doctor up the putty to get a better match. I'll often mix up 2 different shades so I can follow the colors in the wood.
