Some carpenters and licensed contractors deal with door repairs and replacements. Working in this field means dealing with a grand assortment of glass patio doors that slide, decorative double French doors, overhead garage units, and even rollup panel style doors. If you choose to work as an installation and repair specialist in this field, you can expect to address both commercial building entryways, and doors on residential homes. This can be a wonderful line of work for the right individuals, and it typically allows you to work on your own or with a small team.
You will need a certain degree of training in order to handle door repairs, replacement and installation. After all, you will often need to address doorframes, jambs, and knobs that lock. Some different types of doors you may work with are bifold closet units, glass storm types with windows in them, and aluminum frame screen doors. While some of these units will be on the exterior of buildings, others will be in the interior of homes. You will certainly need specific tools to fix or repair hardwood or steel doors. It is essential to make sure the knob and lock are working properly, and that the frame is secure. While you may have to install interior French doors on one day, you may need to replace an overhead garage panel that slides on a track the next day.Although this line of work can be challenging at times, it can also be very financially rewarding.
