Opinions wanted on damaged door
Hi! We have an 8 foot unfinished fir door ($1100) in our new build. One of the subs damaged the door. It has several 'dents' in the bottom panel that are too deep to be sanded out. Our builder is willing to order us a brand new door, however, he offered us a $400 credit if we would allow him to either place a metal kickplate over the damage (an option we would not be happy with) or they would repair it with stainable putty. He is unsure as to how the repair would look. This door WAS over our allowance, so it would be nice to have the credit. At the same time, we don't want our nice door to look awful either. Opinions?
