Why Do You Need a Door and Doorframe Specialist?

Doors and doorframes are generally built to perfectly fit an internal opening. Unfortunately, over time, they become susceptible to damage due to a number of factors, many of which are unavoidable. These might include seasonal effects (where doors expand due to moisture, or shrink when the air is dry), worn-out hinges as a result of day-to-day use, poor alignment (if doors were incorrectly fitted, for example), and water damage.

When such issues arise, it’s best to seek the advice of a door and doorframe specialist. These experts know how to instantly identify faulty doors and frames, and can easily install new ones. Squeaks or strange sounds from a wooden or metallic door, for example, indicate that your door needs checking by a specialist. While you may think fixing a door is a simple job you can do yourself, for total peace of mind and the longevity of your door and frame, it’s vital to get the help of a specialist. Not doing so means you risk fixing it incorrectly, which can lead to further problems down the road.

What Does a Door and Doorframe Specialist Do?

A door and doorframe specialist can save you the hassle of fixing broken or faulty doors and doorframes. But how do you know if you need a specialist? Here are a few common tasks that carpenters specialising in fixing, fitting and assembling doors will often perform:

  • Fixing overlaps: Have you ever noticed the size of your doors increasing? Overlaps are a common fault, resulting from increased water content in the wood or poor installation. As a material, wood can expand due to humidity. This is why many individuals experience problems closing their doors in the winter, when it’s often humid. In dry air, wood contracts, making doors shrink. The opposite is true for metallic doors, which often expand when exposed to heat and sunlight. When doors overlap and won’t close properly, a specialist can be a valuable source of advice and help. They’ll be able to take a look at the frame and the architrave and suggest a solution.
  • Installation services: Properly installing new doors and frames reduces the risk of faults over time. Doors are meant to fit freely, but poor installation can cause misalignment or a lock fit problem. Poor installation can also increase the risk of issues caused by heat and humidity during the hotter and colder months. Local door fitters will possess technical know-how; they will be able to hang your doors with care and precision and insure that all the components, from hinges to handle, are fitted correctly.
  • Fixing faulty locks: Locks and keys come in different varieties and lock patterns, varying from padlocks and deadbolts to single cylinder, double cylinder and more. Locks are subject to wear and tear, especially when excessively exposed to heat and cold. Door and doorframe specialists can fix faulty locks, ensuring your security isn’t compromised.
  • Joinery: The joining process is vital, as it ensures your doors are fully functional. Joints provide firmness and rigidity, meaning that your doors and doorframes will last for years to come. A door specialist can apply fasteners, bindings and adhesive to doors to increase their lifespan.
