My Love of Remodeling

Hello I'm Risa Lee. When my husband and I bought our first home, it was with the intention of doing some major remodeling. We liked the basic floor plan, and it was cheap, but other than that, nothing was right about the house. It took us a while to get started because neither of us had the time or the knowledge. Finally, there was a summer when he had a three-week vacation. Instead of going on a trip, we used our time and money to finally get started on our remodel. To our surprise, we both fell in love with amateur construction! We have since bought and remodeled a few other homes because we love it so much. We're in no way professionals, but please feel free to join in our love and experience in basic construction. Maybe you will learn something!


Trouble With Doors: When You Might Need To Get Them Repaired

The doors throughout your home go through a lot. Those who live inside the house are likely to open and close these doors several times each day, which can lead to plenty of wear and tear over the years. If you are noticing that several of the doors in the home are not opening or closing without causing you trouble or making loud noises, you probably need to have some repairs done. The cost of replacing valuable doors is hefty, but repairing them is a much more affordable alternative that may work a lot better with your budget.

What Problems Are Most Common With Household Doors?

Doors in the home can end up causing plenty of problems, but some of these problems are a bit more common than others. You may have at least one or more of the following issues with doors leading to the bathroom, basement, bedrooms, and more:

  • Constant squeaking noises that occur when you need to open one of the doors to enter the room
  • Trouble getting the door to open without yanking it or pushing it with force
  • Rot appearing on the wooden doors

What Is the Fix for Some of the Common Problems?

The solution to many of the standard door problems will vary depending on the materials and style of the door. It will also depend on the direct cause of the problem. For example, if your doors are making those loud squeaking noises each time you move them, you might need to have a bit of oil added to the hinges. In some cases, it is better to get the hinges replaced because the current ones are damaged. When you cannot get the door to close correctly or without force, the issue likely has to do with the hinges and the screws attached to those hinges, too. Hiring a door contractor is your best bet. The contractor can listen to you discuss the problems you are experiencing, have a thorough look at the doors, and then provide the appropriate solution to resolve the issues that are bothering you.

It is not too uncommon for homeowners to experience problems with different doors at times. Whether you are having trouble with your bathroom door, bedroom door, or even your front door, a contractor can help. The process of fixing these problematic doors involves figuring out what is causing different issues to occur and then completing the necessary repairs to get everything to function as it should.
