Do I Need New Hinges?
There are a number of reasons why you might want to replace your door hinges. The main reason is usually if the hinges aren’t functioning correctly or are broken. This can cause the door to not open or close correctly and should be addressed as soon as possible. It may however be worth oiling your door hinges if there’s just some friction when opening or closing your doors.
Another reason you may want to replace your hinges is if they have started to look worn. Whilst for the most part hinges are concealed, an overly worn hinge can become an eyesore which you may therefore want to replace.
How To Replace Hinges
Replacing internal doors hinges is a fairly simple task on paper. However due to the size of doors it can turn into an awkward job. It therefore may be easier to replace your door hinges with the assistance of someone else, especially if you’re not used to doing it.
The process of replacing the hinges is just to unscrew the old hinges from the door and frame and then screw in the new ones. This can be easier if you replace the hinges one at time and the other hinge will help keep the door in the correct position for you.
