Oak Mexicano Engineered Custom Doors – Base Version
Introducing our brand new made to measure Oak Mexicano Custom Engineered Doors. Also sometimes known as a Suffolk door.
Heritage is the only company in the UK manufacturing custom sized engineered oak doors.
Until now all engineered oak doors have been manufactured in the far east and therefore if you needed a custom size then these had to be ordered especially. They take a minimum of 14-16 weeks to arrive, and regularly much longer. We regularly hear of these orders then arriving with issues such as wrong sizes or damage, with any replacement another 16 weeks away!
Heritage has built a CNC production facility in Sheffield especially to manufacture popular engineered door styles in custom sizes in the UK. This means that we can offer these doors in 1-2 weeks, and you know you are dealing direct with a UK manufacturer. We do not buy standard doors and modify them. Our joiners make every door from scratch.
Oak Mexicano Custom Door Sizing
Our elegant Mexicano doors come at a standard 35mm thick with a white oak veneer over a cross-laminated hardwood core. We aim to keep our service offer simple yet effective, therefore we will offer these doors in 2 size brackets, we can do any size up to:
- 700 x 910mm
- 700 x 1850mm
- 950 x 2000mm

This door encapsulates all of the wonderful tendencies of a traditional Mexicano Door with a twist. To ensure we can offer a budget-friendly option for this classic door, we route the grooves directly into the face of the oak to create the look of a traditional oak Mexicano. The door starts out as a single engineered slab, with a stunning white oak veneer on the front and rear faces. We make the core from cross-laminated hardwood. This is designed to ensure the door remains resistant to bowing and twisting.
This door is offered at an amazing price. This is ideal for those on a budget and looking for a cost-friendly option, without compromising on quality.
Why is this door a ‘Base’ version door?
This door is made from a single slab, therefore there are slight cosmetic differences between this and an off the shelf Mexicano, however this makes it cheaper to manufacture. If you need a door that is an exact match, see our listing for the deluxe version.
As this is a single slab, the top and bottom “rails” of this door will have the grain running vertically as opposed to horizontally. This is only a minor, cosmetic difference however allows us to offer a major reduction in price over the deluxe version due to the method of manufacture. On the sides and top of the door, the laminated core will be within view (hidden on the deluxe version). Finally the 4 corners of the outermost groove will have a small radius. You can view these features in the images above. With all factors being cosmetic only, our budget Mexicano does not compromise on quality!
Can You Customise Any Other Features?
We can machine the door such that the “rails” and “stiles” are any width. Similarly we can place the grooves wherever you prefer. As standard we would match to normal Mexicanos so 5 vertical panels, unless the door is particularly wide or narrow in which case we adjust the number of panels to suit.
Custom engineered Mexicanos ordered from the far east are broadly similar to the prices we charge but take 16 weeks. Sizes are often lost in translation and shipping damage is common. These doors turn up wrong so regularly that many door companies refuse to even sell them.
Buying your custom doors from Heritage means that you get them quickly and you are using a UK company so any issues that do occur can be resolved.
