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.
