Door Maintenance Tips

Routine maintenance

Posted on March 3, 2014 at 8:30 AM

During a routine maintenance be sure to check your hinges

Worn hinges may also cause an issue with your door working properly.  They can cause a lot of noise and cause the door to bind and wear out the tongue and groove joints at the door sections.  Some play at the hinge is normal, but if you see an oblong hole where the tubular hinge pin mates with the hinge bracket, the hinge needs to be replaced.  Gray dust and metal filings around the hinge pin are early signs of wear.
