Tips for Fixing Squeaky Doors

If you have your own home in Arbroath, it's beneficial if you can deal with a few things by yourself; it would seem that there is always something that needs mending. One annoying problem is creaking doors, and that isn't really a significant problem, however the sooner it gets rectified the happier everybody will be. It's one of these tasks you want to mend yourself, since it's too insignificant to employ someone.

Fix Squeaky Doors Arbroath

Pay attention closely to determine the source of the creaking, so that you know just what needs fixing. You shouldn't even think about swapping out the door completely - until you do a swing test. Try to pinpoint the precise source of the creak by listening closely as you swing the door open and shut. You can often have the ability to isolate the source by doing this, and establish the cause. Have a shot at swinging the door at various speeds, if necessary.

You'll likely notice that there's a dry hinge that needs oiling. If you do, tighten the screws positioning the plates to the door to begin with, and then pour a few drops of sewing machine oil, or WD-40, directly on the hinge. Allow the oil to soak into the hinge, and sway the door to and fro a few times. If that was the problem, the lubrication should have fixed it. If it did not solve the problem, there is something else that quite typically happens. Sometimes the squeak might be caused by the door rubbing against other wood. Now this can come about if the door has become swollen due to moisture. If this is the source, just move the door stop to keep it from striking the door. To achieve this you will probably need a hammer along with an offcut of wood. Merely place the wood along the door stop at the point where it seems to be creaking, and bash it over a little.

Persevere until the door performs smoothly and quietly. The issue with this process, is that you'll most likely break the paintwork, and it might have to be to be repainted. Yet another culprit may well be a hinge actually rubbing up against the door jam, maybe because it isn't sunk in deeply enough, or it's too deep. If it is the situation, remove the hinges and sink them in more deeply, or stick some packing in behind the hinges, if they are cut too deep. Almost any door creak could be repaired through this process.

It can be a simple fix, or you may need to replace the complete door. This is generally a fairly simple task if the door concerned is of the pre-hung type. Be sure that the doors match and be prepared to do some painting work afterwards. What is important is usually to do it yourself, and do it right. If you're anxious about making the door a whole lot worse, or are not clear about doing this, your local Arbroath door fitters will be pleased to help you out, so speak to them, or enquire HERE.
