When youre satisfied that the door system is in the correct position drill through the thickest part of the hinge jamb with a regular drill at the hinges areas and then further drill into the cinderblock with a hammer drill. Drill the strike jamb in the same corresponding locations with the middle drilling positioned between the strike and deadbolt mortises. Countersink jambs holes to flush the masonry screw heads. It may be necessary to remove the door from the hinges for this step just remember to check the indexed jambs alignment to be sure nothing has moved. Remove shims and then remove door system from the rough opening. This must be done to install the plastic expansion sleeves into the holes drilled into the cinderblock.
Keeping an entryway looking great during construction and remodeling is now easier and more cost effective than ever. Bifold doors now form part of almost all new build home extensions due to their ability to open up large unobstructed openings allowing the new living space to seamlessly merge with the garden. The enormous growth in demand for these folding sliding doors in the UK in recent years has led to a substantial increase in the number and type of different door systems now available to the consumer. They are now widely available in a choice of materials and finishes with the three most popular being thermally broken aluminium upvc and hardwood.
During construction contractors will pass through the doorway with materials and equipment needed for the construction project. Each pass risks scratching or denting the home entryway. Temporary protection should be in place prior to the start of construction and should include protection for all the aspects of the entryway. Doors can be protected with temporary cardboard door protectors available from a variety of manufacturers. Several protectors are not only made from recycled cardboard but can be reused and recycled entirely again making these protectors truly green. The first protector to market and most popular is DoorGuard.
