    Recently has a joiner come and quote me for supply and fit of 10 internal doors. Initially wanted the quote based on Howdens Dordogne oak doors, but he mentioned the Howdens Genoa too and stated the only difference is the slight recess of the 5 vertical panels, but they'd work out cheaper than the Dordogne.

    Anyone compared/fitted the two and could tell me any main differences in quality etc?

    No difference in quality, only in the style. They’re both a nice looking door.

    I've done both types several times. Personally prefer the extra weight of the Dordogne but they are both fine. In one house last year we used Dordogne downstairs and Genoa upstairs. Looked good. They

    do Dordogne in a pre-finished option that saves a lot of time. The additional £10 ish per door is good value. Don't think Genoa is available pre-finished.
