Repair is a tsunami, a hurricane that sweeps through the house at great speed, sweeping away and destroying everything in its path. But the result of this tsunami is comfort and beauty. In order to somehow reduce costs, some owners prefer to do some of the work on their own, for example, work on installing doors.
Before going to the store outside the door, you need to take measurements. First you need to measure the old door. It is also necessary to assess the thickness of the walls. This is necessary to decide: is it worth buying additional strips or you can get by with the thickness of the door frame.
In general, making repairs with your own hands, you can not easily satisfy the need of your own «ego», but also save a little. After all, the cost of the brigade’s services is an amount that depends not only on professionalism, but also on such a seemingly remotely influencing factor as the dynamics of the ruble exchange rate, which can fluctuate sharply.
After the measurements have been made, the door has been purchased, you can start working. The box and the door are first collected on the floor. In order for the door to close and open without problems, cardboard must be laid between the door leaf and the frame. Now the beams of the door frame are rigidly connected to each other using nails.
The assembled box is fixed in the opening with long self-tapping screws. The main thing is not to twist the screws, otherwise the box may «lead». Then you can proceed to the installation of the canvas and awnings. At the last stage, cardboard is laid between the beams of the box and the door and the space between the opening and the beams of the box is foamed. It is advisable not to open the door within 24 hours..
