Doors are an essential part of the home. Its functionality can be quite straightforward, but it can have a variety of components that make it complex as a whole, especially when having it repaired. In this article, we will answer the question “What do you call someone who fixes doors?” by breaking down its components one by one. Read on further to learn more about who you should contact in case you would need someone to fix your door.

The woodwork

Carpenter (n.

a person who repairs wooden structures

Typically, if you have some damage in the wooden part of your door, such as scratches, cracks, holes, or rot, a carpenter may just have the right skill for repairing it. It is important to note that carpenters are people who mostly work on-site. They are mostly skilled in fitting the structures into your home. 

Joiner (n.)

a person who constructs wooden parts of a building, such as stairs, doors, and windows

In the United Kingdom, carpentry and joinery are separate work, although the skillset may overlap. A joiner specialises in “joining” the pieces of wood together. They mostly work off-site, usually in a workshop. They are more focused on the ornamental parts of the door and may do a better job for bespoke items.

The glasswork

Glazier (n.)

a person who fits glass into windows and doors

Wooden doors, or just doors in general, may also have glass components that provide natural lighting and additional aesthetic features. Having these fixed may be the work of a glazier. They would have better craftsmanship in designing and fitting glass into your door.

The locks

Locksmith (n.)

a person who makes and repairs locks
