There are many different types of door hinges that homeowners can choose from to suit their specific needs. Butt hinges are one of the most popular types and can support the weight of heavier doors. They come in finishes such as stainless steel, brass and bronze. There are also decorative hinges that are an option for exterior doors and concealed hinges can offer a more modern appearance.
The cost of the project can vary based on individual circumstances. The number of doors that require hinges is a major factor. If the project involves switching from visible to concealed hinges, the contractor will need to repair the holes and possibly refinish the doors. Removing the existing hinges before installing new ones can also add to the final price.
A professional contractor can evaluate a door’s weight, size and location in the home to help determine the type and quantity of hinges to install. If mortising or other carpentry work is needed, a contractor has the correct tools and ability to perform precise measurements and cuts. Working with a professional also ensures hinges operate smoothly and align properly.
