Can you cut doors without dragging them off carpet?
New carpets have been fitted, so 2 doors don’t close properly without dragging the carpet and 2 don’t close at all. I’ve previously cut 8-10mm or so off doors very carefully with a jigsaw, which worked pretty well, but a jigsaw is obviously no good for smaller cuts however carefully it’s done.
Even when the door can swing open and shut, if it rubs or scrapes the carpet it eventually wears holes or causes an unsightly discoloration where the fibers are roughed-up. You can trim the bottom off any door using a table saw with a good cross-cut blade.
