New How to Video from Safedoors

A new How to Video from Safedoors has been created to assist tradesmen, experienced DIYers and self-builders with installing a composite door. Just under three minutes long, the video gives a step-by-step guide to fitting the new door as well as removing the existing door and frame, coupled with handy hints and tips.

It has been designed to answer frequently asked questions and help avoid common mistakes; a benefit to the tradesmen, the homeowner, and the DIY enthusiast. Keeping it simple, Safedoors also advises the viewer to check that they have all of the necessary tools to hand before starting the installation, as well as highlighting easy-to-forget factors such as protecting the carpet with a dust sheet and checking that the key is present and correct!

“When it comes to installing composite doors there’s a whole new set of rules,” says Safedoors sales director, Adrian Wyatt. “Unlike timber doors composites are pre-hung, and so there is no need to remove the door leaf before fitting. So while an experienced timber door fitter should be able to turn his hand to installing composite doors without too much trouble, we still get asked questions, and this video goes some way to addressing those. Plus, with most people carrying a smartphone or tablet device nowadays it’s a handy reassurance.”

“Good quality workmanship isn’t just about the manufacture of a product it is also down to the fitting. For an experienced installer achieving a high standard helps keep call-backs to a minimum, saving both time and money as well as inconvenience for the homeowner. While for a Selfbuilder or DIY enthusiast this video can also help keep costs down; giving them the freedom to fit their own door safe in the knowledge that they are doing it correctly.”
