Though it is always rewarding to fix a problem such as a squeaky door, there will come a time when you just need to replace the hinge with a new one. They can be found at any hardware store. Disassemble the hinge. Then attach the new one to your door and wall. Then, ensure that the hinges are aligned and put the new pins in.

In many cases, a coordinated set of hardware comes in a single, handy package. Installing one of these sets is a simple one-day (or even one-afternoon) project.
