setting a door height (new carpet)


Hi
New carpet and door is rubbing equally across the arc. plenty of gap at top 1" (which i plan to fix later, reclaimed door).
what is the best method to get a close fit not quite rubbing on the carpet? i though a piece of hardboard with door open at right angle should with a little sag/compression be about right. (i know about using a door lifter but i always mess up!)

Why not swap your existing hinges for 'rising butt hinges' ?

Hi Don
not heard of them until now. when the door is closed i take it the rise is in effect 0, so i can just lift the door up so it sits clean and as it opens it rises!
i assume as the door is hinged on the right and goes into the room i need right handed hinges?

Be careful with rising butts. Sometimes you have to chamfer the top edge of the door on the hinge side to allow the door to clear the lining.

Well i found the hinges in our local diy shop (seems he stocks more than i though). hinges on and door works a treat.

a problem. the lift i had to add to the hinge when the door is shut to clear the carpet before the rising hinge takes over has made the gap i had at the top reduce to an acceptable level. (1/4" or less)
