In the past we received calls from people asking for advice on how to take care of things themselves. So, here are some tips for you.
You could use decking screws. Probably the most permanent way is to use decking screws about 5 inches (12.5 cm) long, especially if it is an exterior door. Check to be sure the heads are the same size as this will keep them from protruding and keeping the door from closing fully.
Using the existing holes, run the extra-long screws through the jamb and into the 2 x 4″ (5 x 10 cm) framing stud inside the wall. This will permanently anchor the door into place and will last for many years. The reason for the extra-long screws is that they have to pass through the jamb and through a couple of inches of empty space before hitting the framing stud in the wall. This is so effective that it is generally only necessary to use a couple of the decking screws per hinge.
Another way to take care of this would be using steel wool. Stuff steel wool into the hole with screwdriver. Fill the hole almost completely. Screw the screw into the hole.
And another one will be to use a golf tee. Drive a golf tee into the old hole and use a chisel or cut it flush. Use wood glue for a more permanent fix.
These methods are not very hard and yet, an inexperienced person could make more damage. Remember that Locksmith Newmarket is here at all hours of the day to help. Call us for help 24/7!
