Among the easiest and most rewarding jobs in home improvements, hanging door could be a quite challenging job to do when you do not know how to hang a door. Yet, so many people do not know how to deal with such a matter making hiring a professional contractor is the most possible option to take. For those who are running short of the money because so many other things, learning how to hang a door, the one I am about to show is a good thing to do. Before starting the job, takes time to gather a few things, including drill, finish gun, skill saw, pencil, tape measure, screws, sandpaper, shims, prehung door, and level. Then, you have to get the right measurement of opening width right before ordering the door. By prehung the doorjambs, you could confirm the length before installing. You also have to make sure the floor is plumb enough before installing the casing on one side of the doorframe with a nail gun.
Place the prehung door around the opening of the door and use the nail gun to tack the hinge after shutting the door. Make sure the door is even with the floor by confirming the reveal around the door. Then, put the shims in the proper position and nail the casing of the door to the framing of the door. Use the nail gun to nail down the other side of the casing and once again, confirm the even reveal.
Last, you have make sure there is 3/4 inch gap at the bottom of the door, but if there is a problem with such a process, you have to make the adjustment by popping up the hinges so the door will hang loose, making a way for you to trim the bottom of the door.
