How to Hang an Interior Door

Replacing an interior door seems like a job for a pro, until you see how easy it really can be. This course will cover the tools you need, how to choose the right door, and an installation method that's perfect for first-timers. Plus, fixes for common door problems.

Changing a door can be a great upgrade to your home. Imagine going from a lightweight, damaged or just boring-looking door to a solid, perfectly closing door. However, changing the door itself is tricky: You've got to cut mortises for the hinges, and trimming the door so it fits the existing trim can be complicated.

That's where a "pre-hung" door comes in. A pre-hung door has jambs and hinges already installed, so you can install it as a unit. In this course, we'll walk you through how to purchase the right size and type of pre-hung door, and an easy way to install it that's perfect for a first-timer. We'll also share some pro tips for what to do when the walls and floor are less than perfect.
