Looking to replace interior door without hassle

727 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  KevinA
I have two interior doors that need replacing in a rental property. It's a very standard rental built in the 90s. I'm wondering if I can buy prehung doors and simply swap the hinges and knob/latch assembly without swapping the entire frame. They seem to be generic hollow core kind of Home Depot units to me.

Any tips would be appreciated, thanks.

You will not be so lucky---every door company sets their hinges a bit differently.

If you have basic carpentry skills you could chisel in the new hinges and bore the door for the lock and bolt set---

It takes a while to do that job and some money for the lock boring jig and hole saw.
