Door hinges play an important role in our everyday lives; they provide all of your doors with support. Hinges on exterior doors provide the first line of safety for the family inside, and offer protection from the elements. Inside the home, they offer privacy to family members. Our team is fully prepared with all tools and supplies to come to your help, 24/7.
However, installing door hinges, whether new or replacement ones, is a skill to master and can be invaluable for many home owners, especially ones who enjoy D.I.Y. projects. We will show here few steps to be followed for a fast hinge installation process.
Place your hinges in the correct location. Assuming you’re installing a new door, you’ll need to find the precise location on the door frame for your hinges. Measure this distance and mark the location on the frame, and then do the same on the door that you’re hanging.
Trace around the hinge. Put your hinge in place on the door and the jamb, and use a carpenters’ pencil to carefully trace around the hinge. Double check to make sure that your outlines match the same location on the door and jamb, before moving to the next step. Then, use a utility knife to score the outline; this will make it easier to cut the mortise.
To cut the mortise, you’ll need a very sharp chisel and a hammer. While carefully angling the chisel, tap gently into the jamb from the side to remove thin strips of wood. Cut out only the outlined area and the marked depth.
Mark the location of the screws. Replace the hinge back in the jamb where you cut the mortise. Use your pencil to mark the location of the screws in the jamb. Do the same with the location of the hinge on the door. Remove the hinges when you’re done marking.
Use a drill or screwdriver to drill very narrow pilot holes in the location of the screws you marked on the jamb. Tap them lightly in first, to make sure the screws don’t accidentally move out of place. Put the hinges back in their places, and use a drill or screwdriver to secure them individually into the jamb and the door.
Connect the door to the jamb. Hold the door in place, using blocks under the bottom to support it if necessary. Line up the two hinge plates so that the ones on the door match the ones in the jamb. Slide the hinge pins into place, and remove the blocks from the door. Test the door to make sure it works, and the work is done!
