Door Hinges. Wednesday , September 20th , 2017 - 06:49:17 AM
Door hinges have a thankless job. For most of their mundane lives, they simply swing back and forth, holding the door securely in its frame. Occasionally, they strain as children swing back and forth on the door handles. Other times, they shudder to a sudden stop as a door is thoughtlessly slammed. But when door hinges become a bit unhinged from years of use, they can not only cause doors to squeak, stick or rub, but allow heat to escape and cold to enter. Maintaining your door hinges is a simple process, something you can do once or twice a year. And it will keep your hinges working properly for years to come.
The easy way to install the door and door hinges is to install the new door hinges where the old ones were. This only works if you selected the same size door hinges as you previously had on the door with proper hole-spacing. If not, you may have to use some wood putty to fill the old holes, and then put the new hinges wherever you would like. When deciding where the door hinges will go remember, doors are supposed to open into the room, they are also traditionally expected to open to a wall, not to flap in the open area of the room. If you have someone handy, you may want to bring them into play at this time. Line up the door where you think it should be placed, using shims to balance it off the ground enough that it will open and close.
While wood doors are generally able to be held with two hinges (unless they are very heavy wood or oversized door), if you have a steel door you need to make sure the hinges are strong enough to hold it. This means you may once again want to go with three door hinges, instead of the traditional two, for the extra stability they will afford. If you hear a squeaking door sometimes its not that it needs oil its that its too heavy for the two hinges its being held by and needs a third one.
