Installing interior doors is not as difficult as it may seem at first glance. If the master has at least a little experience with doors, then this is a big plus. The only thing that is better to entrust a specialist - it is a sidebar fittings. Incorrectly installed hardware can ruin the whole result.
Installation of the door unit
The installation of interior doors takes place in several stages :
Technology of installation of interior doors simple enough. However, before starting work, there is one crucial stage that cannot be skipped. This is the door selection stage.
The end result largely depends on how responsibly the choice is made.
Materials and tools for installation must be prepared in advance. From the tools you will need:
From materials it is necessary to purchase:
When door purchased, you can get to work. At the first stage collect the box.
Assembling the box is a simple process. The only thing you need to remember is that you need to retract the stand boxes to set the gap between the door leaf and the floor. For ordinary apartments, the gap is set to about 10 mm.
After the gap is set, the racks are connected using self-tapping screws. After assembly, the stage of installation of the box in the opening begins.
It is desirable that the opening be pretreated. To do this, check the vertical walls, as well as the height and width of the opening.
The box is installed using level and wedges. The level checks the position of the structure in the opening. The procedure is as follows:
Assembly of the door frame
Door leaf hinged on hinges. The box at this time is fixed only with struts and wedges.
Do not fool the door frame before hanging the door. The fact is that we still have to make sure that the door itself will not open in this position.
After the canvas is hung, you can fill in the gap between the box and the opening.
Care must be taken to ensure that foam does not hit the surface of the door. The composition of the foam can easily damage the surface, so you should work carefully.
Now we need to install the additional element.
After the additional element installed, you must wait for the foam to dry. When working with assembly foam, you should remember about its expansion property. The substance should always be applied in doses.
The next stage after the installation of the striker plate is the trim.
If the bezel is “with a beak”, then it is attached to liquid nails. Sawing it is not necessary.
Today, you can find doors made of natural wood, glass, plastic, metal and composites in stores. Also found mixed designs.
Usually the choice is made taking into account the design of the room and this is the right approach. However, it is necessary to consider all the main varieties of these structures in order to know their advantages and weak points, as well as the subtleties of care.
