Installing a Door in an Existing Opening

  • Boston Building Resources 100 Terrace Street Boston, MA, 02120 United States (map)

This hands-on class will help you learn how to replace a door or to hang a door in a finished opening where the jamb is already in place. We will cover fitting the door to the opening, including trimming a Reuse Center door to size and making a door work in an opening that may not be quite plumb and square. We will also cover preparing the slab for hinges and lockset installation, including aligning the latch with an existing strike.

Vincent Dorio has been a carpenter for more than 20 years. He has worked on small and large remodeling projects as a carpenter, supervisor, and manager. He is now the Receiver for the Reuse Center at BBR.
