Hiring a tradesman for door easing/ planing

It is important for a door to fit properly in place, without scraping against its frame or marking your flooring. This can be a common problem, especially after installing new flooring. To ensure this, it can sometimes be necessary to remove parts of a door: this is called ‘easing’ or ‘planing’.

While easing or planing a door can seem simple, and is a good DIY skill to learn, there is still much that can go wrong. You will need to measure your door carefully to make sure that you do not remove more than necessary. Also, if you do not know how to use a planing tool properly you could easily end up marking or even ruining the door.

For easing or planing a door, the best tradesman that you can hire will be a qualified local carpenter. A skilled handyman should also be able to do the job, though you should make sure your candidates have experience with the same kind of work.

What do I need to know about door easing/ planing?

Easing or planing a door follows a relatively simple process. Your tradesman will remove the door from its hinges, before using a scraping tool to remove part of the door on whichever side is rubbing against another surface.

The cost of easing or planing a door will usually vary between around £30 and £80, depending on the amount of work that needs doing. Average prices will also vary between different parts of the UK, with tradesmen in London and the south charging more than those elsewhere.

If you are hiring a handyman for the job, make sure that they have the correct experience. A handyman is more of a jack-of-all-trades than a specialist; if you hire one that has as little experience easing doors as you do, you may as well have just done the job yourself!

Finally, depending on where you need the work done on your door, you may need to redecorate it afterwards. You may even want to consider hiring a painter to redecorate both the door and the room itself!
