One of our clients called to have a door installed in a bathroom. The door had been removed to allow the previous tenant wheelchair access and the new tenant needed a door installed. The original door was no longer on the property so before we could get a new door we would need to measure carefully.
The door opening was 36” then we measured the hinges while leaving room at the top for clearance.
Here is a view into the bathroom from the bedroom.
Just a slab.
Next we trim about a 1/2” off the bottom of the door since the door opening height was exactly 80”. Measure, mark and cut in hinges and holes for door knob and latch.
Next step prep for paint.
We always hang the doors in the shop and make sure the shop floor is clean before spraying doors with paint.
If the floors aren’t clean before painting, the sprayer can blow particles into the wet paint.
Painting using the hand sprayer helps the paint to go on quickly and evenly. We always apply two coats letting the paint dry completely in between coats.
Once the door is painted we let it dry for at least 12 hours before delivering the door for installation.
The door is ready for the hinges to be attached and the door to be installed. Hopefully all the measurements we took are right and the door fits without having to make too many adjustments.
It’s a perfect fit!
