We’re talking about the mistakes which are made regularly when fitting internal doors, and we’re also going to be showing you how you can avoid them. Fitting a new door can be a frustrating exercise and if you’ve never done it before it can be littered with potential problems. Today however, we’re hoping to iron out most of them for you, so you can have a seamless fitting.
Once internal doors are fitted they can really give your room, or even your entire home, (depending on how many you’re having fitted) a real lift, so it’s always worth the time and effort in choosing and then buying your internal doors.
After that initial rush of shopping and purchasing your doors, you then have to fit them on to the door frames. You want your doors to look as good as they did in the pictures and on the showroom floor. Any little mistake can make the difference to how it will eventually look, therefore spending time on the fitting is crucial if you don’t want to mess it up. Spend the time slowly and carefully, don’t rush through it and then have to take them down and go through the whole process again.
An open and shut case
Always consider how your door will open and close before you purchase. You’ll need to think whether or not you have enough space to accommodate the particular type of door you’ve chosen. Check the direction the door will take when it opens. If you do encounter problems with the opening and shutting of the internal door, then consider a left or right hang, this could make all the difference.
Measure with care
Measuring is always important, never guess, it’s important in getting the right fitting. Measure the frame and not the door that’s being taken down. In all likelihood you’ll need to trim the new door slightly, and as you can imagine there are risks involved.
Do things slowly and follow each step carefully
Follow some simple step by step instructions you can find online that explain clearly how to fit your door and all the fixtures and fittings. This is especially important if you’ve never done it before.
