First you need to dismantle the old doors, and clear the opening of construction debris. Then a new door frame is assembled. Vertical posts are measured in height and sawn off with a miter box to the desired size, and the horizontal bar is supplied in the size of the door leaf. It is necessary to file the rubbing surfaces with a file. For reliable fixation, screws are screwed into the corner joint of the box. The hinge position is marked at the hinge position on the door leaf. The horizontal post is applied to the door so that there is a gap of 3 mm between the door and the horizontal crossbar of the frame.
When you want to install an entrance or heavy interior door, the doors must be hung on three hinges, and the interior doors on two. The verticality of the walls of the doorway is checked and the assembled frame is installed. The frame of the interior door is fixed with wooden wedges and its verticality is verified with a level. The uprights are fixed to the wall with large screws and dowels. The remaining holes are closed with special caps. Consider other options for attaching the box to the doorway.
On the door leaf, markings are made for the hinges. Above and below, measure 200 mm, apply a loop and circle with a pencil. The place for the hinges is hollowed out with a chisel and a hammer. All open surfaces (hinges or locks) must be varnished. Holes are drilled in places for screws, then hinges are screwed on. After that, markings are made in the place of installation of the lock for depth and width. The lock is usually installed at a height of 800 mm to 1100 mm from the bottom edge of the door. Using a cutter, a hole for the lock is milled. If a hole is drilled, then it is better to do this not from one, but from both sides alternately. After correct installation of the lock, the interior door can be installed. The door leaf is hung on the hinges. Details about the tricks of the gash and installation of door blocks
It is necessary to fill the space between the box and the wall with mounting foam. Foam tends to expand strongly and create pressure at the same time. Therefore, the door frame is reinforced with spacers. The foam dries from 4 hours to a day, depending on the composition.
The last step is the installation of platbands. They cover the cracks between the box and the wall. Platbands are cut strictly at 45 degrees. They are nailed to the box with small carnations with flattened caps or no caps at all. The distance between the nails should be 100 mm - 150 mm. Details about other ways of fastening platbands.
