Installing door casing: casing, as the trim around doors (and windows) is called, has a strong impact on the overall style, appearance, and proportion of an opening as well as the overall style of your home's interior. On the practical side, it conceals the gap between the door frame (called a jamb) and the rough opening and helps to hold the frame in the opening. Casing can be relatively plain, such as the popular clamshell design or square-edge design, or detailed, such as colonial-style molding. By far the most popular casing joint design is the mitered picture-frame casing.

1. Remove existing casing: if you are re-trimming an existing door, pry off the existing casing carefully so you won't damage the wall or the doorjamb.

Tip: If a film of paint or bead of caulk bridges the joint between the casing and the wall, cut the seal with the point of a utility knife before attempting to pry the trim. This makes prying easier and eliminates the chance that you will pull off some of the wall finish or surface paper when you pry the casing.

2. Mark the reveals: the inside edge of the casing is typically placed back from the inside edge of the jamb by about 3/16 inch. To mark this reveal, set the blade position in a combination square so it protrudes 3/16 inch and mark jambs at the top corners, the midpoint of the head jamb, and several points along the side jamb. To make the mark, position the body of the square against the face of the jamb with the blade extending over the edge and mark at the end of the blade.

3. Cut all miters: measure the distance between your marks on the side jambs at the upper corners (frame opening plus 2 times the reveal) and miter-cut your head casing at 45 degrees on both ends so the short dimension equals your measurement. Cut miters on one end of each piece of side casing. Remember that one will be left-handed and one right handed.

4. Prime or stain: before you install the casing: if you intend to paint, apply a primer, or if you plan a natural finish, apply a stain and first topcoat. Cover the sides and both faces to seal the wood and prevent warping. Pre-finishing is also easier than painting in place, especially if you don't intend to paint the walls when the installation is complete. If you stain before assembly, you also avoid the problem of stain not taking over any glue spots at the joints.

5. Tack head casing: lightly tack the head casing into the jamb so it just covers your pencil marks. If the casing is being installed on the exterior you must use weather-resistant fasteners, such as hot-dipped galvanized nails.

6. Cut and test-fit side casings: stand the left side casing upside down next to the left jamb with its long side against the point of the head casing, and mark its desired length directly. Alternatively, measure from the floor to the top left-hand edge of the head casing and transfer that measurement to the casing. Square-cut at your mark and test the fit.

7. Make adjustments: If the miter does not meet without a gap, which can happen if the jamb is not square or if it sits slightly below or above the plane of the wall, the casing miter may need re-cutting.

8. Secure casing: apply glue to the end of the side casing and position it so it fits tightly with the head casing. (and not too worry about lining it up with the reveal marks on the rest of the jamb yet.) Secure it to the jamb. Position the nail about 1 inch from the end and near the outside edge of the casing. Then secure the inside edge of the casing to the jamb. Once the miter is tight, continue nailing the rest of the casing. Work your way from the top down, nailing at five equally spaced positions. Repeat for the opposite side and then complete nailing the head casing at the two ends and midpoint.

9. Cross-nail miters: to prevent miters from opening, drive a 4d finishing nail through the edge of the head and side casings about 3/4 inch from the outside corner. This will lock them together.

10. Finishing touches: wipe off any excess glue immediately with a damp cloth, drive all nail heads slightly below the surface with a nail set and hammer, and hand-sand as needed to make casings flush with each other and to eliminate any splinters. If you plan to paint, fill nail holes with wood putty or acrylic caulk first; if you will stain, fill them with colored wax putty sticks after you complete finishing.

Casing A wooden trim around doors that covers seam between jamb and wall. It has a strong impact on the overall style, appearance, and proportion of door opening as well as the overall style of your home's interior. On the practical side, it conceals the gap between the door frame (called a jamb) and the rough opening and helps to hold the frame in the opening. Casing can be relatively plain such as square-edge design or detailed, such as colonial-style, French-style, Asian-style or Mexican-style molding

Hardwood Decorative Casings and Doors. These beautiful casings are hand carved on both sides from selected teak. The graceful lines add an attractive alternative to the usual door frame. Together, the gorgeous solid wood and thought provoking lines combine for a striking and admirable entryway or doorway to a building or room of importance. Also a great conversation piece as it is a one of a kind design.

Constructed of solid kiln dried teak, these doors and casings offer maximum resistance to warping and splitting, especially in raised panel models. The doors, with matching jambs and casings, come unfinished, pre-finished and finished with a furniture grade catalyzed polyurethane clear coat. This type of finish not only offers exceptional protection to the wood, but also brings out the woods natural color and beauty.
If you want to install a new door including the frame and you elect to use a "prehung" door, it may have the casing already mounted on one side. If so, you only need to install the casing on the opposite side after the jamb is plumbed, squared, and secured in the opening. If you are re-trimming an existing doorway, your first step will be to pry off the existing casing.
Casing installation tips: while not absolutely necessary, a power miter saw is far better than a miter box saw, even a professional-quality one. The power saw makes perfect cuts and can also make the very fine tapered adjustments that are often necessary for perfect miter joints. If you can't justify buying one, rent one.
Tip two: to prevent splitting in this usually thin edge of the casing keep your nails back at least one inch from the ends of the molding. It also helps to lubricate the nail by carefully rubbing it against the side of your nose (yes, nose oil really works!).
