cant remove sliding parlor doors

I live in a 120 year old house.Somebody pushed the doors into the walls and layed a new floor down,so the floor is stopping the doors from moving.What is the easiest way to get to the doors?I thought about an E blade,but the cost of blade plus tool is over 400.00.Can I remove molding without damage?

Re: cant remove sliding parlor doors

not a huge deal to get some flooring guys in to remove some of the flooring that's in the way, i assume it's typical hardwood flooring. after they remove the flooring, pull the doors out, trim the bottom so that they'll work, then have them replace the flooring with some new boards and refinish. if you want to try it yourself there's vids all over the internet on how to remove and replace hardwood flooring pieces without redoing the entire floor.

this is just one way to go about it to give you an idea of what i'm talking about
