Door repair service is not frequently needed because the door is usually durable and seldom gives you problem.
Door Lock and Hinges | Door Repair
Door lock and hinges may malfunction after many years. They may require earlier attention if you did not oil them periodically. Most of the time door lock repair is not cheap. As such, it may be more cost effective to replace it with a new lock.
Door hinges should usually last longer than door lock. Most of the time you just have to oil the hinges and they should function properly.
Another common problem with kitchen cabinets and wardrobes is their door alignment. There is a tendency that one side of the door drops lower and is mis-aligned from the other door. This can easily be solved by adjusting the hinges.
The handles of our wardrobe and kitchen cabinets may detach from the doors and may be difficult to reattach because the tread for the screw is spoilt. A handyman will be able to find another suitable handle and reattach it for you.
Door warping or bending is common in Singapore’s humid weather. The moisture in the air affects the shape of wooden door and cause it to bend. When it bends too much, you may not be able to close the door properly. Though the handyman carpenter may be able to re-shaped the door, it may be better for you to replace the door. Door replacement is quite common after 10 years if the door is of poor quality. At Handyman Singapore, our carpenter will be able to attend to your door replacement and installation needs.
Toilet and Bathroom Door | Balcony Door
Because of constant exposure to the water and heavy usage, the toilet and bathroom doors tend to spoil more easily than other doors.
Tempered glass door is commonly installed in our bathroom. They can be sliding door or swinging door. For sliding door, the bearings and wheels which run along a track and allow it to slide may need to be changed or replaced after some time. For swinging door, the hinges may create some irritating noise as it ages and make the door difficult to close. If oiling the hinges does not help, you will have to change them. For bi-fold door, the constant folding and straightening of the door makes the door hinges more prone to damage. Sometimes, the bi-fold door can derail from its track if too much force is exerted when opening and closing the door.
Balcony door usually uses the same type of mechanism – sliding, swinging or bi-fold. For sliding and bi-fold doors, you should expect the same problems after some years.
Rubbish Chute Door
The door of our rubbish chute is usually quite small. However, we have the tendency to squeeze a big bag of rubbish into the chute and force it down by closing the rubbish chute’s door forcefully. As such, the rubbish chute’s door and hinges are under tremendous stress and may give way over time. At Handyman Singapore, we are able to find suitable rubbish chute door and hinges for replacement. If the whole rubbish chute’s frame needs to be replaced, we can also help you with the replacement.
