Door repair and replacement tips

Here are some useful tips if you have a squeaking, faulty, or unhinged door.

• When attempting to lift a door off its hinges, it is best to remove the bottom pin first. The opposite is true for when you replace a door on its hinges, then it is best to insert the top pin first.

• You lubricate a squeaking door hinge with petroleum jelly instead of oil. This removes the worry of any leaking oil dropping on the floor or carpet.

• If you need to remove 1/2 inch or greater from a door, it is best to score first with a utility knife as this prevents prevent chipping, then finish with a circular saw, for best results.

• After you have installed a door to the required size for hanging, you should bevel the latch edge backwards, so as to let it clear the jamb as it swings open and shut.

• After you have planed a replacement door, you need to seal the planes edges with wood sealer. This prevents the replacement door from swelling and sticking again.
