Reinforcing Large Extra Heavy Doors
If the door being installed is very heavy and/or large, you may want to consider one or more of these optional reinforcement techniques. REMEMBER, you already have all the hard work of the installation done by the brackets. You are simply taking and extra minute to reinforce your perfectly installed door.
(Pro Builder PREFERRED METHOD)
1. Replace the center screw from each of the hinges with a longer screw (often supplied from the manufacturer with the door).
2. After the doors installed, simply throw some shims in and nail through. Whats an extra minute after the doors perfect?
