Door frames are tricky and you have to know how to deal with them Double door frames are even more trickier, and if you need help, call us. If you think you can do it by yourself, here are some tips. Fitting locks in a double door frame can be tricky, as any misplacement or sizing of the holes incorrectly can result in the entire door becoming non-functional. Keep these tips in mind when installing locks into your doors. Before you install the locks, make sure the doors are as square as possible. This can be done by laying them down side by side and using a square level to check them. The lock mechanism will work similar to that of a single door, except it will take extra measuring and a specific kind of lock to be installed on these doors, especially if you want to have the same kind of handles on both sides. The lock mechanism on these doors will bar them from opening inward by a set of support brackets with apertures set in the door jamb at the hinged edges of the doors. This will allow the brackets to be supported by resting them on two door hinges. You can also find double deadbolts to install for extra protection for your home or office.
Here are also some tips regarding on how to keep your wood doors from splintering. Wood doors on the exterior of your house are a great natural design element, but they require maintenance to keep them at their best. This maintenance is handled most successfully when scheduled regularly as part of your annual spring cleaning or your fall wintering project. These tips will help you keep your wood doors at their best. Since they are exposed to the elements, exterior wood doors are vulnerable to damage if unprotected. Excessive water can cause the wood to warp or rot while excessive sunlight or heat can cause dry rot. The best defence against the elements is to treat the door with a weather-proof sealer or paint and annual applications will help you get many years of service from your wood door. If your wood door is natural, untreated wood, linseed oil will provide adequate protection while preserving the look of the wood.
Hard ware that is rusting, deteriorating or coming loose poses a threat to the wood. Hardware includes hinges, door handles, locks, knockers along with the screws and mechanisms that hold them in place. Check for screws that are too tight or loose, or a bracket that is rubbing, which can cause the wood to wear, leading to splintering and cracking. Clean the hardware, keeping it free of dust and debris, and make sure it isn’t rusting or separating from the wood. If you have to replace hardware, minimize your use of a drill as much as possible. Hand tightening the screws will ensure that will not over tighten the fastenings. When adding new hardware that requires a power drill, use a sharp bit and drill the hole quickly, which decreases the chances of splintering the wood. Check the door frame, jambs and weather stripping. A door that is closing too tightly against the frame increases the risk of splintering. You may want to remove the door and check the moulding around the frame, the frame itself, jambs and weather stripping replacing parts as necessary. The fit around the door when it is closed should be snug with a good seal without rubbing or friction. Treat current splinters. Existing splinters in a wood door will likely lead to more splintering later. Always address splinters as soon as they occur. This simple repair job requires wood putty and sandpaper. First, remove the splinter from the damaged area. Then sand down the edges and apply wood putty. After the putty has dried sand it down to match the grain of the door. Then just apply paint or stain to get an even look. Most of the time splinters are an easy fix, but if you fail to address them the door could become damaged beyond repair, leaving you with the expense of buying and installing a new door. These simple maintenance tips will add years of life to your wood doors.
Our team is also going to help you installing a pet door. Constantly letting your dog or cat in and out of the house can be an annoyance, but pet door installation is a simple solution to this pesky problem. Installing a dog door is a great way to eliminate some of the inconveniences of pet ownership, such as the need to take a pet out to do its business several times a day. Because these special doors are designed to simply fit into a hole cut out of the door, pet door installation gives you and your pet the freedom you both desire.
For security, there are a number of one-way doors, which allow cats and dogs out, but nothing in. This design can help prevent burglars from using doggie doors to gain access to the home. Other pet doors are even more ingenious, using a special key that the dog or cat wears on its collar. This key allows the cat or dog entrance into the home, but no other animals. Fortunately for pet owners, pet door installation is generally quite an easy process. Here are a few steps for how to install a pet door on your own. First, you have to determine the size of the doggie door that will be needed. There are a number of doggie door sizes, designed for a variety of pets. Measure you pet. Pet doors vary greatly in size, so you want to measure your pet at their highest and widest parts of their body. Choose a pet door that is at least 2 inches higher and 2 inches wider than your pet, and purchase the required parts at your local pet or home supply store. The door should be large enough to accommodate the largest pet that will use it. In order to measure for the door, measure from the animal’s shoulders to the bottom of the rib cage. Before making a cut in the door, use the measurements to cut a hole in a piece of corrugated cardboard. Tape the template that comes with your pet door on the door, at least 3 inches above the bottom of the door. Trace the outline of the template. Note the placement of screws. This outline will be your guide when you cut the opening for the pet door. Mark the corners with an “X” just outside the outline.
The pet should then be encouraged to step through that hole. If the pet fits easily through this hole, you will know that the chosen size will work well. If not, the next largest size pet door should be used. Drill holes with a ½-inch drill bit at the four X marks for the exterior door mount. Drill holes for screws with a 3/8 drill bit or the size recommended by the manufacturer. After the proper size has been chosen and the door has been purchased, cut the appropriate size hole in the door. Cut the hole for the door, carefully along the outline with a jigsaw. Insert the doggie door. Insert the exterior pet door frame against the exterior of your door and secure it. Insert the interior pet door frame (side with the flap) and screw it into place in the proper holes. After the door is in place, give the cats and dogs in the household some time to get used to it. Now introduce your pet to the new door and watch it come in and out on its own. They should be watched closely to make sure they are able to both enter and exit the house unassisted before being left alone. Pet doors allow your furry loved ones to come in and out as they please. However, many pet-door flaps are poorly insulated, which can cost you money on your heating or cooling bills. You can fix the issue without having to get rid of your pet door. Or call us to help.
