Plane door and rehang

How to trim a door after a new carpet installation? Get the Squad to do it. Welcome to the Handy Squad.

So, you had a brand-new beautiful carpet fitted, but as soon as the fitters left, you realised that two of the doors had to be forced to close and the other one doesn’t close at all? Maybe this is a highly specific situation, but if you are in a similar trouble – don’t worry, our carpenters in London are ready to give you a helping hand, because when one door closes … another might need some trimming down or an extra push!

Weather conditions, especially high moisture and humid days can make wooden doors swell up. If your door has swollen due to weather, our London carpenters might only have to trim a few millimetres. In case you had new carpets fitted, we often need to take off up to one centimetre, depending on the thickness of the carpet. Perhaps the door simply needs some tightening, or the hinges need some shimming. But no matter what the solution is, the reality is that nobody likes having doors that are stuck or jammed.

If your door is old and a bit shabby, you might want to replace it instead of simply trimming a bit off. Small cracks in doors, letterboxes and windows will cause draughts. Thus, to save energy and to keep your house warm during the wintery months, invest in better insulation or replace your doors for modern and better insulated ones.

At the Handy Squad we offer a variety of other services you might require, including draught proofing, repairing holes in walls, painting front doors, repairing locks and hanging up shelves, among various other services.
