Home > Product Installation Guides > How to replace a door architrave
You’ve decided to tackle your own installation, you’ve purchased your beautiful new mouldings and now you’re looking for some direction on how to replace your door architraves without damaging your walls or creating more work for yourself.
Replacing your door architraves is relatively simple and we have created some easy steps to follow so your DIY doesn’t turn into a DI-whoops.
This will break the paint joint between the two surfaces.
Between the existing architrave and wall lining (normally plasterboard), to break the paint joint between the two surfaces.
Make sure it’s in an area within 50mm of existing fixings and slowly prise the architrave away from the face of the jamb and wall lining. Starting at one end of the architrave and working along to the other end at each fixing point, to remove the architrave completely.
Use pincers or a small pinch bar.
Use a paint scraper or chisel.
You are now ready to install a new door architrave! You can watch our instructional video for the installation of window architraves below, with the only difference being you have 2 sides and one head on the door, meaning the bottom cut on the two sides are square (where the architraves meet the floor or skirting block) and the top cuts are 45-degree mitre cuts, treated exactly the same as the window architraves.
The difference between a Skirting board and Architrave is the location and the size. The Skirting board is designed to be fitted around the perimeter of a room, fixed to the wall where it meets the floor. An Architrave, however is usually a smaller width than the skirting board, and is fitted around the windows and doorways to cover where the wooden frame meets the plasterboard.
To accurately work this out, you will need to measure the rooms, doorways and window frames. To learn how to do this see the guide here.
We also offer a free take-off service for our account customers, where we work out the requirements for you. Simply submit your project details, plans & window schedule. Learn more here.
Architraves when framing a door run to the floor, with the skirting board butting into the side of the architrave. Sometimes a skirting block is used instead, meaning that the architraves run into the top of the block, and the skirting board comes out of the side of the block. This is useful when a different profile design, or thickness is used, or to create a more decorative finish.
