Are you looking for something standard? Or do you need custom sizes? The places that make windows also make doors usually.

just a quick word of advice I had French doors with wooden shutters made and after 6 years they are all warped with the sun so I would recommend not to get wood.

thats verry anti wood , if the doors were badly made with useasened wood yes tghey would warp

there are wooden doors still in use in italy that are a hundred years old show me a plastic

door that has lasted that long , or even metal Windows modern style , if the hinges or catches fail you cant fit replacement as the firm that made them has gone out of buissines , hinges for wooden Windows can be found any were

yust look about italy you might find some doors older than a hudred years

Not just unseasoned but badly made. A well made wooden product moves. Drier in the summer. Wetter in the winter. Even a basic wood worker would know that.

well I wish I had known that when I paid all that money for what I thought would be authentic looking shutters. the local man who made them has been in business for years and was recommended by the builders (also local Italians) perhaps they just saw a silly old foreign woman who wouldn't know any difference. re my advice I just thought i'd let the previous poster be aware of the possible dangers.
