My contractor just hung our fancy dancy un-painted solid wood door slabs in my 100 year old house with solid hardwood floors throughout. There is an approximately 1.5" gap at the bottom of the doors. I think it is too big and think a 1/4"-1/2" gap would accommodate any unevenness in our floors and allow us to use area rugs. Is there a standard size for the gap at the bottom of the door? If it is in fact too big, how do we fix it?
This was part of a major renovation that involved replacing all the trim and repairing damaged plaster. The areas around the doors were stripped down to the studs and headers, but the hardwood floors were left in place. There is no sort of threshold on the floor between the rooms as the hardwood floors run throughout the house.
