9 foot tall interior doors
I am installing a trim package that has 9' tall solid poplar stiles and rails with MDF raised panels. These doors are very heavy, at least 120lbs each. They are pre-hung in finger joint poplar with 4 heavy duty ball bearing hinges. After installing the 8ft doors on the second floor (built the same way), the doors swelled a great deal and I didn't have much adjustment due to the fact that I shimmed the doors at the hinges. I think that I am going to have to take some out of the hinge sides after its all said and done. Should I leave the shims out of these doors and trust the casing to hold these beasts in place???
