Tips for Mending a Squeaking Door

Owning your own property in Arbroath is terrific, particularly if you're handy at do-it-yourself, because you never need to hunt too far to find another thing that needs mending. A creaking door is certainly one such issue. It isn't a big issue, but it certainly can be an nuisance to everyone until it's repaired. It is one of these jobs you would like to fix yourself, because it's too insignificant to employ someone.

Fix Squeaky Doors Arbroath

Pay attention closely to uncover the source of the creak, so that you know precisely what needs repairing. You should not even think about swapping out the door itself - until you do a swing test. Swing the door forward and backward and listen intently to determine the source. You'll be able to probably find the source of the creaking this way, as well as the cause. If you are not having any results, try moving the door at various different speeds, and see if that works.

You'll probably discover that there is a dry hinge that needs oiling. In that case, tighten the screws positioning the plates to the door to start with, and then pour a few drops of sewing machine oil, or WD-40, directly on the hinge. While the oil penetrates the hinge, help it along by gently swinging the door open and shut. If it was the trouble, the lubricant should have solved the problem. If it still makes noise, there may be another probable place to look. As time goes by, wood swells or maybe the door becomes warped, and quite often when this occurs, the door is hitting other wood. To prevent this, simply move the door stop so it is clear of the door itself. All that you need to do this is a block of wood and a hammer. Apply the hammer along with the wood block to smack the door stop over a bit.

Keep going with it 'til the door functions quietly and easily. As this might result in a bit of paintwork damage, you should be prepared for a little repainting. An additional cause may well be a hinge actually rubbing up against the door jam, possibly because it isn't cut in deeply enough, or even because it's in fact too deep. You may need to take the hinges off, and sink them in more deeply, or find some packing to put behind the hinge. It's sort of, a trial and error process, where you must keep checking.

If perhaps none of this works, you may find that the whole door will need to be replaced. This is normally a fairly simple task if the door concerned is of the pre-hung form. Ensure that the doors coordinate and be prepared to do a bit of painting. Whatever it is, the great thing is to be able to do this yourself.
