Our company has well-trained and fully equipped staff to come to your door and solve all its problems. However, if you would like to install a door using brackets, here are few great steps to following to make it easier for you.
Use a bracket system for efficient hanging of doors. Brackets leave doors hanging very true. They are easy to install with one person and will could your time installing time in half. Brackets will also allow you to easily adjust the door clearances, should you need to.
Using a 4- or 6 foot (1.2 – 1.8 m) level, draw a vertical plumb line on the drywall 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) in from the rough opening. This line must be on the hinge side and in the room the door swings into.
Make sure that the vertical line is both straight and level. A straight line that is not level with the bottom of the floor will leave a door that doesn’t swing true.
Screw three brackets to back of door frame, beside the hinges. Using the screws provided, install brackets beside each hinge, making sure that they’re even with the edge of the door frame.
Screw the other three brackets on the latch side of the door. Start 8” (20 cm) down from the top, and then once again 1” (2.5 cm) above the latch hole, and a final bracket 6″ to 8” (15 to 20 cm) up from the bottom of the door. The final bracket, if there is one, is recommended for the top, on doors 30” and wider. The door is now ready to insert in the rough opening.
Place 1/2″ (1.27 cm) blocks on the bottom of the floor for carpet, and 1/4″ (0.635 cm) blocks for vinyl or laminate. Never place the door directly on the bottom of the floor.
Starting at the top hinge, match up one of the lines on the bracket with the level line drawn at the beginning. Screw the door to the wall using the drywall screws provided. Work your way down the hinge side of the door, starting at the top, and making sure to use the same line for each of the three hinge brackets.
Next, check the clearance between the frame and the door on the top and knob side. Take care to make sure they are equal. It’s easier to unscrew the drywall screws at this point than after the final screws are already embedded in the drywall.
Starting at the top again and working down, continue screwing the screws into your brackets on the latch side. Keep the clearance between the frame and door equal as you screw the door to the wall with the drywall screws.
Install any trim over top of the brackets. Most trim will have hollowed out backside, which will both allow the brackets to fit underneath and conceal them. If your trim doesn’t have a hollowed-out backside, you may need to hammer the brackets into the drywall just a little.
