Door Handles. Sunday , September 23rd , 2018 - 04:56:03 AM
Before proceeding with the door handle replacement project, you should collect your tools at one place and open the door slightly. Check the interior sides of the handle to find the screws. If you do not find the screws, then the door handle head should be popped-off using a flathead screwdriver. The screwdriver head should be inserted into the side slot and turned slightly. The cover on the handle will come-off exposing the screw. The screw can be turned and removed. This should be done for both sides of the handle - inside as well as outside. Then the screws on the strike plate are removed from the side of the door and then the latch is removed. In case of screen doors and storm doors, you can skip this step. The next step in door handle replacement is to take a measurement of the distance between the side of the door and the holes. This distance is called 'back set' and it can help you to make sure that the new handles will work properly with the door.
The first thing that you ought to consider is the type of material these cabinet door handles are made of. Since there are plenty of materials to choose from such as nickel, brass, chrome, stainless steel, wrought iron, glass and even plastic, you need to think about the overall effect that you are trying to achieve. To help you narrow down your search, you should consider where you will be installing these handles. Will it be your bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen? Knowing which cabinets or doors you are going to revamp will help you get one step closer to the right door handles to purchase.
You should also check immediately if your door hinges are squeaking. Sometimes it might need just a little cleaning. You should also be aware of what kind of material your door hardware is made of, so you won't be applying any harmful chemical that might make it rust easily. For instance, brass door accessories need only soapy water or beeswax for cleaning, while chrome door handles are usually maintenance-free and require only non-abrasive wax, if you want a thorough maintenance. It would, indeed, be a pity if you go through all this trouble of finding the perfect door hardware, just to be left with one that does not work properly in just a year or so. Be sure to keep in mind these tips so you will have door hardware that suits your requirements, design- and function-wise.
