Shaving around the door opening of a brick wall to fix replacement doors
At the time of installation to replace french doors, I learned that the replacement doors are slightly too large (about 1/2 inch on each side). The doors are located on a brick wall. There is some debate about whether the inside bricks on each side of the door opening can be shaved back a little so that the replacement doors would fit. There seems to be two concerns. First, understandably, a professional brick mason is needed. Second, if too much of the brick is shaved off, there would be a new problem with no solution; that is, the door would be too small. While I understand that, unlike shaving a wooden door, it would be more complicated to shave a brick wall at the door opening, is this task too complicated for a mason to attempt?
