I installed Pergo floors on top of our existing linoleum in our entryway over the weekend and the install went fine, and everything looks great. But as I went to install the closet doors (bifold) I discovered that they won't fit!

The additional height of the new wood floor made the closet doors to tall to fit into the existing frame. There is a strip of 1/2" drywall on the top of the closet frame. If I rip this out (or channel our a strip for the closet track) the door will fit.

Will doing so violate any obvious building codes? If so, do you have any idea of how to get the closet door in? Thanks in advance for the advice.

Trim the bottom off the doors.

As Joed said, trim the bottom of the doors. Even hollow doors have a section of solid material at the bottom so that they can be trimmed.

Hey Fragasaurus, I just have to ask- is your last name Fraga?

Sorry JayF, it is not. Fragasaurus is the name of the inflatable dinosaur I keep in my office.
