First of all, you should verify the quality of the walls adjacent to the door frame. On the box itself, you need to install dobora, if it is not aligned exactly along the walls. Concrete cover at the door must be perfect, otherwise the trim will not fall as it should. If necessary, the walls are put in order to the last finish.

Further platbands mark. It is necessary to do this from the flat side, because the convex one is intended for the obverse. The difficulty of marking work is to bring the trim in an ideal position at the joints. Angles should be exactly 45 °. It is very convenient to use a protractor, but if it is not at hand, then, by attaching the trim to the door, draw the desired angle and cut off the extra part. In order for the joints to be perfect, you need a quality tool for cutting - the small-toothed saw should be sharply sharpened. Wizards use for this electromachining machine.

The total length of the vertical casing should be the length of the box plus 5 mm. Having measured the necessary, the remains are cut off. The horizontal element of cashing is the last thing to do after the final assembly of parallel elements. For convenience, you can draw a horizontal line, which will be a beacon when combining cashing in with the door frame or doorways. When nailing the first element from two sides, you can not worry about the displacement - the fortified element will not go anywhere.

It is time for mounting the upper part. To nail a short cashing in, it is also marked out first, in accordance with the already established ones. Beginners may have differences in the corners, if they nail all the necessary parts to the door box at once. Therefore, it is possible to measure the dimensions of a short element even before installation, and to nail it after installing long ones. If there are such flaws, the marking is carried out according to new measurements, because it is no longer possible to remove and nail down vertical guides without damage. You can hide the flaws, if the gaps at the joints do not exceed 1 mm. They are covered with acrylic sealant or wax, suitable for color. Short cashing is nailed just like all other components.
