There are many reasons to why a hinge needs to be repaired. One of them is having a loose wood screw hole for a hinge. We can help you 24/7 to repair it, or you may try to do it yourself.
Our team is expert and know how to do it fast and with no damages, saving you time and money. But if you still would like to go ahead and do it, here are some useful tips.
Drill out the stripped hole and glue in a dowel the same diameter as the drill bit. If door sag has been a problem, drill through the jamb, any shims behind the jamb, and into the door framing studs. This gives you a dowelled connection all the way back to the wall framing that will be suitable for a long wooden screw. After that, glue it. Then cut the dowel off flush with the edge of the door or hinge mortise and pilot drill for the screw after the glue sets. Reinstall the screw.
Another method is to relocate the hinge just a little up or down. This may require re-chiseling the pocket in the frame and on the door; then filling with plastic wood and touching up the paint. This is probably the most labor-intensive fix.
And another method will have you wedge a shim into the hole (a toothpick or wooden matchstick, for example) but it probably won’t hold for long. You may be tempted to try this, but for a hinge, you really need holding power. Not recommended for those inexperienced.
In any case, it takes work, proper tools, patience and knowledge. We have them all and our services are affordable. Call Locksmith Waterloo now for help!
