Where to Find Wooden Accordion Doors
LESLIE: Now we’ve got June in California on the line. What can we do for you today?
JUNE: Hi. Yeah, I am looking for accordion-type wooden doors to fit two 8-foot openings: one in – going into my living room and one up in my loft.
JUNE: And I have not been able to find wooden accordion doors, only vinyl.
TOM: Have you been looking for them for a long time?
JUNE: Yes, I have. I had some Pella doors – they were beautiful – back in the 60s, so I know that they did make them then. But I don’t think they make them now because everybody that checks for me either doesn’t get back to me or say they don’t have them.
TOM: Well, that’s why you called us.
JUNE: That’s exactly why. I’ve been wanting to call you for years, yes.
TOM: You shouldn’t have waited quite so long. We’ve seen these before and they are available and there’s actually a good website that has them, called Woodfold.com.
JUNE: Woodfold.com. OK.
LESLIE: And they’ve got them for commercial and residential applications. And with the residential, I think they’re perfect because they’ll give you up to an 8-foot width and up to an 8-foot, 1-inch height. That should work for your opening perfectly.
JUNE: Oh, yes.
LESLIE: And when it stacks within the opening, you’re probably going to get – you know, say it all goes to one side?
JUNE: Uh-huh. Yeah.
LESLIE: You’re going to get about a 10-inch stack and they’re generally 4¼ inches wide, so that should be the same width as your path through. I mean they should just …
JUNE: Right. That would be perfect, right.
LESLIE: I have no idea how much they cost but they’re gorgeous.
JUNE: Yeah, well, I need to do something for winter because there’s no insulation in a cedar house; it’s just all wood.
TOM: Oh, so you would use this to kind of separate the areas, huh, and keep the heat to the one side?
JUNE: Exactly, because I don’t really use the living room anyway and the loft is upstairs and it …
TOM: I see. Yeah. Alright. So there – your search is over. It’s Woodfold.com. Take a look and good luck with that project. I see they also do custom doors so if something is not quite standard, in terms of its size, that they’ll make it fit.
JUNE: OK, great. Thank you so much. I enjoy your show.
TOM: Well, you’re very welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
