If you require a nice new external door in Kelso, rear or front, you might be lucky and find it's simply a case of exchanging an existing door for a new one. But, the way in which modern exterior doors are manufactured means you'll most likely need to upgrade the existing frame, particularly if it's damaged or warped out of shape in any way.

Fix a Creaky Doors Yourself

If you own your own house in Kelso, it helps if you are able to repair a few things by yourself; it would seem there's always something that needs repairing. One of those infuriating problems is squeaking doors, and that isn't really a significant problem, however the faster it gets rectified the happier everyone will be. It's one of these jobs you intend to deal with yourself, since it's too trivial to employ someone.

Fix Squeaky Doors Kelso

Pay attention closely to determine the source of the squeaking, so that you understand exactly what needs correcting. Before you you take the extreme step of replacing the whole door, as long as it's still suitable for your needs, do the swing test. As you're moving the door open and closed, concentrate on the squeaking to find out if you can determine where it is at. You'll be able to probably find the source of the creak in this way, along with the cause. If you listen closely, as you are swinging the door at various speeds, you ought to be able to establish the exact cause of the squeaking.

The most common cause of creaky doors is a hinge that is inadequately lubricated. First be sure to tighten every one of the fixing screws. Then grab a flat screwdriver to use to relax the hinge pins. Put a little oil directly on the hinge itself. Let the oil run into the hinge, and swing the door to and fro several times. If that was the problem, the lubrication should have solved it. If there is still a noise, there is one additional likely offender. As time goes by, wood swells or the door becomes warped, and quite often when this occurs, the door is rubbing against other wood. If this is happening, the answer is just moving the door stop slightly, so that it no longer hits the door. All that you need to achieve this is a block of wood and a decent sized hammer. Just simply put the block of wood alongside the door stop exactly where it's rubbing and knock it over a little bit.

Keep at it until the door performs quietly and easily. The issue with doing this, is that you will more than likely damage the paint, and it may have to be to be repainted. Yet another cause may well be a hinge actually rubbing up against the door frame, perhaps because it is not cut in deeply enough, or it's too deep. You may have to take off the hinges, and sink them in deeper, or find some packing to put behind the hinge, to raise it up a bit. By means of this experimentation process you ought to be able to quickly and easily fix any door creak.

It may be a straightforward fix, or you might need to replace the whole door. This is a relatively easy process if the door concerned is of the pre-hung variety. Be sure that the doors coordinate and get ready to do a bit of painting. The main thing is always to do it yourself, and do it right.
