If you would like to try and take care of the door hardware by yourself, follow these instructions. Clean the hardware, keeping it free of dust and debris. Make sure it is not rusting or separating from the wood. If you have to replace any hardware, minimize your use of a drill as much as possible. Hand tightening the screws will ensure that will not over tighten the fastenings.

When adding new hardware that requires a power drill, use a sharp bit and drill the hole quickly, to minimize the chances of splintering the wood. Check the door frame, jambs and weather stripping. Check for screws that are too tight or loose, or a bracket that is rubbing, which can cause the wood to wear, leading to splintering and cracking.  A door that is closing too tightly against the frame increases the risk of splintering.

Remove the door and check the molding around the frame, the frame itself, jambs and weather stripping replacing parts as necessary. The fit around the door when it is closed should be snug with a good seal without rubbing or friction. Always address splinters as soon as they occur. This simple repair job requires wood putty and sandpaper.  Remove the splinter from the damaged area and sand down the edges. Apply wood putty, let it dry and sand it down.

Paint or stain to get an even look. Most of the time splinters are an easy fix, but if you fail to address them the door could become damaged beyond repair; leaving you with the expense of buying and installing a new door. These simple maintenance tips will add years of life to your wood doors.
