If the hinges on your internal doors start to work loose, stop working properly or become stiff or buckled then a carpenter, joiner or door-fitting expert should be able to resolve the problem swiftly and inexpensively. The tradesman will first remove the door to examine the problem in detail. They will then be able to repair or adjust the hinges that are causing a problem.
If the hinges are coming away from the door or door frame then the tradesman will be able to repair the screw holes with filler or wood glue and then re-drill the holes and rehang the door. They may also choose to move the hinge up or down slightly to a stronger part of the door or door frame, drilling new holes to allow for the fitting of the hinges.
If hinges are stiff then your tradesman may disassemble them and lubricate where necessary, or simply replace the hinge. Buckled hinges will usually need replacing, but they are relatively inexpensive items that can be replaced in a matter of minutes. Your carpenter or joiner will make sure that the holes in the door or door frame are strong and sound before fitting the new hinges. If you have soft-close or security hinges then the job may take a little longer and the hinges cost a little more to purchase and fit. The material that your hinges are made from may also dictate the cost to replace each one.
