Necessary tool to install a wooden door

Material


From the materials we need, door frame, door leaf, platbands, hinges, door handle, finish nails, dowel-nails (for fixing the box), foam (minimum expansion).

Inspect the door for flaws, the edge of the door with a defect can be put under the hinges in the inner part.

Required materials for the installation of wooden doors

Door hinge installation


Let's start with marking and installation of door hinges on the canvas. To do this, on the side where the loops will be located, measure the center of the loops from the bottom and from the top of the canvas (the center is the mating part of each of the two halves of the loop).
The distance from the bottom and top can be made arbitrary, from 25 to 30 cm.

marking and installation of door hinges

After marking the hinges, on the canvas, we cut down the chisel under the hinge (who has it, you can use a milling machine), the hinge should lie flush in the recess, without a ledge.

We cut the excess with a chisel under the hinges

We mark with a pencil the holes for screws, a drill with a smaller diameter than the hole for fastening, we go through all the holes. Screw all the screws, pressing the hinge to the door leaf. Hinges on the door installed.

Then mark the hinges on the door frame. Mark the center of the top hinge, do the distance from the top of the box to the center of the hinge 3 mm more than on the door leaf, orient yourself around the top hinge, mark out the bottom hinge.

Then mark the hinges on the door frame

We cut the excess with a chisel under the hinges, drill holes for the screws and fasten the hinges to the box.

We dress the rack of the door frame with hinges on the door leaf, and measure the required length of the bottom of the door frame.

Installation and assembly of the door frame


We cut off the excess part of the door frame, measure the length of the resulting rack and cut off the second rack of the same length.

We cut off the excess part of the door frame,

The gap between the door leaf and the floor must be at least 10 mm, it is necessary to take into account the presence of a floor slope (if any), carpets, otherwise the door will hit the bottom of the door on the floor.

If you still have no flooring, then when installing the doors, you need to take into account the increase in admission
for flooring.

. We install the upper part of the box (crossbar)

Cut out with a hacksaw at both ends of the cross member. We do not touch the racks of the frame. We install the upper part of the box (crossbar) between the posts, not forgetting about the gap between the leaf and the box about 3 mm on each side.

We connect a cross-bar with racks with the help of screws.

We insert the frame into the doorway, expose by level

We insert the frame into the doorway, expose by level, fasten the upper part with wedges. To install the frame in the opening, it is desirable that there are identical gaps between the frame and the wall from all sides, so that later they can be closed with overlays.
  
Fastened to the wall first part of the frame where the hinges are located, for this, it is necessary to make three holes for the dowel-nail cap in the frame so that the nail head does not protrude from the door frame.

It is possible to make holes in advance, but there is a nuance, if you have old walls, where you can not put a dowel everywhere, pre-drilled holes may not be useful, so with loose walls with holes, it is better to drill holes in the box locally.

We drill the wall Eletro-Puncher directly through the existing holes in the frame.

We drill the wall Eletro-Puncher directly through the existing holes in the frame. We check the level of the verticality of the stand in two planes, and twist the dowel-nails, pre-laying a wooden lining between the frame and the wall.
After part of the door frame with hinges is bolted to the wall, we put the door on the hinges and expose the vertical and the clearance of the second frame pillar on the door itself, then check the level.

We drill three holes for dowel-nail, make the middle hole at a height of 1 meter from
sex, it will then close the return part
the castle. We fix the dowel-nails box, check the verticals with the level again, in case of not even clearance between the box and the door, the clearance can be adjusted by releasing the dowel-nail and selecting wedges of different thickness.

After mounting the box, the gaps are filled with weakly expanding foam, after drying, the foam is cut off.

With the help of a hacksaw, overhead decorative elements are sawed off at 45 degrees.
