Page 11-a a news features when a door refuses to open and close properly the first thing nearly every Home owner does is run for a plane a file or Sand paper. Actually removing any Wood Fror a door to get it Back into working order should be a last resort operation. Most of the time the sticking or binding is caused by one or More Loose hinges. Tile Mould be checked by opening and closing the door at varying degrees of Speed observing whether there is any hinge movement. This will have to he done carefully since the hinges at first glance May appear to be solidly attached to the door Anc the Jamb. But of ten it lakes Only the tiniest fraction of an Inch movement As Little As a 32nc of an Inch to throw the door out of line. If no hinge movement is no lived use a screwdriver to test whether every screw in each Linge is lightened securely if goes in All the Way yet does not seem to be gripping firmly it Means that the screw Hole has become enlarged. A temporary cure is to use a slightly larger screw yet on which fits into the opening in the hinge. The belter Way to handle this problem is to remove All the screws from that particular hinge and fill the Boles with Wood Putty plastic Wood or a wooden plug. When the filler has hardened not necessary if a plug is the hinge and screw Are replaced in their original positions. Should All the screws be seated firmly a Shim May be the answer. A Shim in this Case is merely a piece of cardboard placed under the hinge Leaf which is attached to the door Jamb. If the door binds at the top remove the screws from the top hinge Leaf place the cardboard under it and replace the screws. The screws thus will go through the card Board before going into the Wood. If the door binds at the Bollom use the Shim under the Bottom Linge Leaf attached to the Jam. In either of these cases Little experimenting May be necessary such As a thicker piece of card Hoard or two pieces of cardboard instead of one. Or you May find hat the Shim should be very Small just enough to fit under the Edge of Thi hinge Leaf without the screw going through the cardboard. None of this will work if or More of the hinges is Defee Ive. Usually a hinge will last As Long or longer than the door self but a replacement must be made when the hinge is cracked or Bent. An excellent Way to avoid future Strain on a door that is used Otten is to add a third hinge Midway Between the other two. If the hinges Are of the convention Al butt Type the a Laird hinge will have to be set into mortise n the door and the Jamb just As the others Are. You Ean do this with out taking Down the door using a chisel and Mallei to Cut out the mortise. In purchasing a third hinge get one of the lame ilm and Type As the top and Bottom hinges. When you Are absolutely cer Tain that Loose hinges Are nol Caus ing the trouble then you will have to plane file or Sand the part of the door Hal is clicking. Do this a Little at a Lime since the tend ency is to take off too much Wood and leave an unsightly Gap. And be sure that the area worked on is repainted or re varnished. One of the main causes of a warping door is Hal pain or varnish is not applied to the edges and Earls. That s where the moisture takes its loll and that s where the finishing material is most import ant.
