He has just finished a Home Buyers Guide to take some of the frustration out of home shopping. There is rarely a home anywhere in the world that does not have a garage. This is due to the increasing number of cars that people own. Some households own up to three cars. This means that it is vital that they have somewhere safe and secure to store their vehicle or vehicles. The garage is the best place for this. The piece of equipment that ensures that your garage is safe is the door. There are a wide variety of different materials available to have your garage door constructed from.
Ive learned by the hard way of experience that its necessary to remove old existing jambs carefully. If directly fastened to masonry with cut nails jambs removal may break out the cinderblock unless the jambs are cut into short manageable lengths. An out of level concrete threshold step can be ground flat by a concrete cutting subcontractor or the door threshold can be adjusted by unscrewing and repositioning in the jamb by the amount out of level. Any attached brickmold and casing must be removed from the jambs to make installation easier with shimming. Also brickmold will probably have to be ripped in width to fit the overall brick opening width and height.
When youre satisfied that the door system is in the correct position drill through the thickest part of the hinge jamb with a regular drill at the hinges areas and then further drill into the cinderblock with a hammer drill. Drill the strike jamb in the same corresponding locations with the middle drilling positioned between the strike and deadbolt mortises. Countersink jambs holes to flush the masonry screw heads. It may be necessary to remove the door from the hinges for this step just remember to check the indexed jambs alignment to be sure nothing has moved. Remove shims and then remove door system from the rough opening. This must be done to install the plastic expansion sleeves into the holes drilled into the cinderblock.
I would like to recommend something here for anyone who is thinking about installing a door that will have a high door threshold. Dont do it unless you have another reason that is protecting the area from water snow or something else that would create a bigger problem if you lower the door threshold. Heres what happens to most people. You walk through your home regularly travel about and even go to work without running into these high door thresholds. You come home and subconsciously youre not even thinking about the raised curb and you trip. One trip to the ground could cost you more in medical bills than it would have been to remove and lower the raised door threshold.
New jambs allow for air-tight vinyl weather stripping and adjustable thresholds with vinyl door bottom sweeps. Low maintenance fiberglass or metal doors are sandwiched with foam insulation. And doors with windows come with thermal glass. Installing a new door in an existing older home has become a highly desired remodeling upgrade. These days installing a pre-hung entry door system (including jambs) to new wood stick frame construction is generally pretty straight forward; you can just nail or preferably screw through the jambs to the framing studs behind. If adjustments are necessary just pull the nail or back out the screw re-align the jamb using builders shims and try again.
For the Greeks a door was not simply a way to enter a building but a holy place itself worthy of the highest respect." Keeping doors jambs and thresholds looking great while a home is under construction or remodeling is important and is now easier than ever. During construction contractors will pass through the doorway with materials and equipment needed for the construction project. Each pass risks scratching or denting the home entryway. Temporary protection should be in place prior to the start of construction and should include protection for all the aspects of the entryway.
