Door Hinges. Thursday , November 23rd , 2017 - 23:45:04 PM
If you have an overlay door you will need pivot hinges. One is attached to the top and the other to the bottom of a door, and portions of each are recessed into the door and frame creating a concealed hinge. Flush doors commonly use butterfly hinges. These hinges are so named because they look like a butterfly when opened. They consist of two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin. They mount on the outside of the door and jamb or frame for a unique decorative look. Youll find them in multiple styles ranging from colonial to art deco and beyond to suit your personal taste.
Going further back in time were large rocks that would have to be rolled in front of the door and then rolled away, or pieces of wood that were pulled in front of the doorway and pushed back every time you wanted to go in and out. While it did the general job of a door, it was a very inconvenient, and very heavy, way to go. These images illustrate why we should be thankful that someone finally came up with the great idea to make a more easy to use access to a room, namely a door on door hinges.
The easy way to install the door and door hinges is to install the new door hinges where the old ones were. This only works if you selected the same size door hinges as you previously had on the door with proper hole-spacing. If not, you may have to use some wood putty to fill the old holes, and then put the new hinges wherever you would like. When deciding where the door hinges will go remember, doors are supposed to open into the room, they are also traditionally expected to open to a wall, not to flap in the open area of the room. If you have someone handy, you may want to bring them into play at this time. Line up the door where you think it should be placed, using shims to balance it off the ground enough that it will open and close.
