Yesterday I went to trim the bottoms of some passage doors that I made for a customer. My client had a very plush carpet installed on top of the thickest pad the carpet distributor had to offer. All the doors were dragging excessively on the newly carpeted floors. Normally I cut the door bottom to leave about 1″ of clearence, and have never had anyone complain; however, yesterday when my client arrived home he immediately called me to ask why I cut so much off the door bottoms. He was looking for about 1/8″ to 1/4″ maximum.
So immediately this brought up the question,”How much do you guys cut off the door bottoms for carpet clearence?
