Everyone’s houses have different types of doors and with those differences raise different types of repairs in respect to perfection of the doors or fixing the doors. Few of the door repair types are as mentioned below:

• Fixing a Door That Impasses
• Fixing a Loose Door
• Fixing Wood Door Problems

Through passing of time, doors cause to bind and stick. As your house settles, doors sag in their frames. Door at times may have been misaligned from the start. A variety of problems occur with doors. Some, such as damage to their surfaces, can happen to any type of doors. Other problems are unique to the way a door gets operated. Pocket doors can jump their tracks, bi-fold doors can pop out of their pivot mounts, and hinged doors can become stuck in their frames. In this post, we will help you know how to repair all of these types of interior door problems, beginning with hinged doors, which can become balky, sticking in their frame, they can become too loose to seal properly, or their surfaces can become damaged. The problems for interior as well as exterior entry doors are same, they don’t have any difference.

Let’s go into the depth of fixing up the doors.

How to fix a door that impasse?

You need to mark your door with any light chalk or pencil just to know where it binds against the jamb. Hold a sharp wood chisel flat against the surface, and slice off the excess. Then smooth the surface with fine-grit sandpaper. Coat the door edges and the jambs with paraffin. If that doesn’t do the trick, try adjusting the axes. Many doors bind against the upper corner of the jamb or drag across the carpet. Close the door, and check how it fits in the jamb. Look for tight spots, and make sure the top edge of the door is level. If it appears to be more than 1/4 inch out of level, the cause is probably settling or sagging. You can usually solve this by removing the door and planing it, first try sanding the areas with coarse, followed by finer, sandpaper. You need to plane the edge of the door, working from the corner toward the center. First of all, remove the door before planing it.

How to Fix a Loose Door?

If your door bangs then adjust the position of the strike plate. When an interior door rattles, this means the door stop and/or the strike plate are not tight enough. If the strike plate has a projection in the center that can be bent slightly to tighten the fit, remove the plate and use a pair of pliers to bend the projection. Otherwise, you may have to adjust the position of the door. You need to cut the paint seal first with a utility knife. Then place a wooden block against the door stop, and hammer the block gently toward the door to provide a tighter fit.

How to fix wooden door problems?

There are many methods for repairing or restoring woodwork, and they work just as well on wood doors. You can sand out minor scratches, fill grooves with wood putty or by gluing in a new piece, and so on. If a door is cracked or split, you may be able to re-glue it without removing it from the rest of the door. If you have to remove a panel or replace it completely, try prying off the moldings that surround it and hold it in place. On some panel doors the moldings are routed in and can’t be removed. In this case, one option is to cut away these integral moldings carefully. After you’ve fixed the panel, buy new moldings to match the rest of the door’s trim, which will be easy and effective.
