Answers

You will need to trim a 1/2" off of each side if you use 1/2" drywall to finish out the opening. Put masking tape down the door where you need the circular saw to cut to keep it from splintering. Prime the wood edges before you paint the doors.

How do I determine what size bifold doors to buy based on my measurements?

Based on your measurements, 2 24” bifold doors will work. Look under product overview and click the link for the installation guide. It gives specific measurements for the finished opening size required

Door is perfect for my newly renovated closet. The 6-panel doors match the door to the room. It slides easily, and looks very classy. I had a handyman install it, so can't comment on ease of installation, but it fit the space as expected with clearance for the rug.

What!
I waited 6 weeks and when they came they were not pre-drilled. At least that's what I thought at first. I didn't think to measure them, I have a dowel jig so I drilled the holes and painted them. When I went to hang them they were way short. So, I measured. 29.5 x 76 7/8. Not 30 x 78 now I think they just plain cut them wrong and cut off the pre-drilled holes. Not the quality control I would expect. 7 weeks down the road out $243.63, my time and paint. Nope not again!

NOT Trimmable
This door would be fine if it is the correct size. However, I purchased it specifically because it was "trimmable". I trimmed slightly less than the recommended maximum amount off the bottom (and yes, I measured correctly, which I confirmed with the pieces I trimmed off). I installed the door, and I thought all was well until it collapsed the second time I opened it. As you can see from the picture, when you trim that much off, it rests the entire weight of the door on less than an eighth of an inch of fiberboard, which it simply cannot take. I don't know if I got a manufacturer's error or they were maliciously misleading in their description.

POOR QUALITY
This door is made out of really poor quality material. I’ve had three of them damage in less than 6 months. Don’t waste your money. Buy something else that will last you a long time.
