A loose butt hinge will cause a door to hang crooked and stick. Sometimes tightening the hinge screws is all it takes to fix the problem. But if the screws can’t be tightened because the holes are stripped; there are extra steps to be taken. Our team has the tools, experience and skills needed to do the job for you.
In case that you want to do it yourself, try the following tips. Open the door wide and insert a wedge under the bottom outside corner to level it. Remove the screws that hold the loose hinge leaf to the door jamb. (If the hinge and jamb are painted, cut the paint around the leaf with a utility knife.) Swing the leaf away from the jamb. Then bore out the stripped holes with a 3/8-inch-diameter bit.
Spread carpenter’s glue onto a 3/8-inch-diameter x 1-inch-long wood dowel; and tap it into the hole until it’s flush with the jamb. Bore out and plug each of the remaining stripped screw holes the same way. Wait at least an hour. Then position the hinge leaf and bore 1/8-inch-diameter pilot holes. Finish by securing the hinge by driving screws into the dowel-reinforced holes.
If a kitchen cabinet door hinges are loose, they need to be tighten immediately. Unless you do it immediately, the screws will enlarge ; and strip the holes until it’s impossible to tighten them. A quick, convenient cure can be found just inside one of the cabinets: toothpicks.
