Is your door sagging? Or perhaps you have noticed that your door is making marks or indents on your carpet that was never there previously? If you are experiencing any of these problems, the likelihood is that you need a new hinge. Fixing a door hinge can seem stressful if you have no experience with this kind of job, but it doesn’t have to be. Here is a step-by-step guide to fixing it.

 

Assess the damage Door Hinges Repair Guelph

The first step to fixing your door hinge is to determine the extent of the damage and decide whether it is a case of repairing the existing hinge or replacing it completely.

 

Repairing

If the damage is minor, it may simply be a case of tightening the hinge with a screwdriver. The screws can become loose over time and cause the door to sag. If the screw does not tighten, a different course of action may be appropriate. Invest in a long screw that will penetrate deeper into the door frame and as a result it will hold the door in place better.

 

Replacing

If your efforts to repair the hinge have been unsuccessful, replacing the door hinge is often the next step. If you have never replaced a door hinge, these tips will help you do so at speed. The first step is to remove the broken hinge. Make sure you leave the rest of the door and remove only the hinge. Before you replace the hinge, make sure that the door is in the correct place. Use a piece of wood as a wedge to ensure the door stays in the required position. While in this position, check to make sure that there is an equal gap at the top and the bottom of the door. Mark the position of the new hinge on the wall before you remove the broken one. Once the old door hinge has been removed, check to ensure that the wood underneath is in good condition. Attach the new hinge using a screwdriver and align the door to the frame.

 

Test the new door hinge

Once you have successfully installed the new door hinge, it is time to test it out. Remove the wooden wedge from underneath the door frame and open and close the door multiple times. If the door opens and closes without a problem, your job is complete.

So, there you have it, a stress free guide to repairing or replacing a door hinge.
