Excellent service, really impressed. Came in and went straight to work on the job, we are very happy with the outcome and would definitely use him again.

Top Door Frame Fitting related questions

Repairing damages and enhancing a living space are common reasons to replace a door frame. If the damage is too significant for a minor fix, then you may need a frame replacement. Other causes include changing door swing direction or widening a door to move furniture.
Exterior doors are designed to endure the elements and frequent use. Meanwhile, interior doors tend to be lighter and less expensive. Another difference is the materials that make up the doors. Interior doors usually consist of a single material, like fibreboard or wood. In contrast, exterior doors can be made out of a combination of materials, such as wood with a reinforced metal frame. You can even find exterior doors made from steel or metal, which is rare.
A door jamb is the vertical flat surface that runs up each side of the door frame. The door frame is all the elements combined. These elements include the jamb, hinges, and striker plate that helps you open, close, and lock a door.
Not necessarily. When replacing a door, you don’t have to replace a door jamb that’s in good condition. Using the same size should do the trick. But some door replacements call for door frame replacement. For example, you will have to replace your door frame if you’re expanding a doorway. You can only widen a door frame if it is not bearing the weight of the roof or upper floor.
Notify Building Control of your plans to replace an external door frame. Under Building Regulations, external door frame replacement counts as a ‘controlled’ fitting. Next, make sure to hire an experienced handyman for this specific type of task. You’ll need someone who can make sure your new door frame complies with Regulations. A registered installer can issue proof of compliance after completing the task. Alternatively, you can pay a relevant Building Control Body to inspect your new door frame.

The necessary steps include: 

  • Removing the door 

  • Cutting the caulk or paint along the door trim edges 

  • Prying off the casing 

  • Knocking out small pieces of wood wedged between the jamb and rough opening 

  • Removing the hardware 

  • Sawing off nails, and 

  • Removing the frame 

Most of these steps are similar between fitting interior door frames and exterior door frames. But the process may vary in some ways. Your Tasker can walk you through the removal steps for your specific frame. 

What do door frame fitting services include?

Door frame fitting is useful for building and construction, door damage repair, and home improvement. Carpenters can install all types of doors, such as internal doors, external doors, veneer doors, glass, doors, and laminate doors. A door frame fitter may remove an old door frame, being careful to cause the least damage possible to the concrete or plastering. The specialist may also dispose of the old door and frame.

The door frame and door jambs provide lasting support for a door. A door relies on the framing, which is why it’s crucial to hire the right door frame fitting service. Experienced door frame fitters ensure doors hang level to the floor. Airtasker connects you to rated and reviewed food frame fitting services. 

Door frame installation

When installing a new door frame, you’ll need a frame kit that comes with the jambs, head, and stops. You’ll have to buy the door slab separately. If you prefer, your door frame fitter can source all these materials for you. Door frame fitting involves assembling the frame kit and bracing the door lining, so the jambs are straight and parallel.

The carpenter then proceeds by fitting a door frame into the wall opening. Afterwards, the carpenter inserts screws into the jambs, checks that all sections are level, removes the braces and hangs the door. The expert may also fill the gap with insulation or seal the edges with caulk. This step ensures the frame has no visible holes where it joins the wall. You can also request for shed installation and other carpentry services on Airtasker. 

Door frame repair

A handyman can repair door frame warps, splits, rots, or dents. Fixing a door frame is a cheaper and faster solution than replacing it. Door frame repair can be done in the following ways: 

  • Straightening a warped door frame with a mallet
  • Cutting out a crack and glueing new timber into place
  • Carving out rotted wood, inserting wire mesh, and filling the gap with wood or body filler
  • Covering nicks or dents with wood or body filler

Aside from these tasks, carpenters on Airtasker can also do door handle fitting and repair. They can also do property maintenance, such as cleaning. Conservatory repairs can also address a leaking or rotting roof.

Door frame replacement

Homeowners may replace a door frame to address damages, change door swing direction, or expand a doorway. Replacement usually starts with unhinging a worn-out door and removing the door frame. Working time may vary on the type or size of the door frame. 

Then, the next steps are similar to a standard door frame installation. Precise measurements are crucial to door frame replacement. The structure must be straight and fit snugly into the wall opening. When the frame fits just right, the carpenter can insert screws into the jambs and drill in the hinges.
