How to install a door is an easy project to do. You can install your door without any help from the home constructor. You don’t need to be an expert to get your door installed properly in your house. You just need to follow the instructions from the door manufacturer to get your door installed properly and you will find no difficulties in installing your door.
Here are the steps you need to do in installing your door. Make sure you do the right thing to get the best result. You will need some tools to help you with the project, so you need to prepare them before you start installing your door. You will need power drill, pencil, level 4’ or 6’ and door installation brackets.
If you don’t have them, you can rent them on a rental station. The important thing that you shouldn’t miss is that you need to buy the door first. In this case, you buy the prehung door, or a door that's already attached to a frame with hinges. The door you buy should fit the rough opening in the wall.
By using a 4’ or 6’ level, you can draw plumb line on the wall. It is usually 1/2” in from the rough opening on the hinge side of the door. Then it is the essential part on how to install a door. You can attach the door installation brackets to the outside of the door jamb. Place a bracket behind each of the three hinges and the remaining three brackets on the other side of the jamb.
Place the door into the opening on top of blocks or shims and attach the brackets using the plumb line on the wall. Screw in the top bracket on the hinge side of the door and the door will now be perfectly hung. After that you can remove the blocks under the door. Install the casing around the installed door and you’re done.
For the casing of the door, you can use strips of wood to hide the joints and some parts of the hinge. It will perfectly conceal the door installation brackets. You can choose casing that compliments your style depending on your preference. The project’s done on how to install a door.
