Finish door slopes with their own hands

Finish door slopes with their own hands

Door slopes with their own hands can make any homeowner.

As always, success depends on your ability to hold the instrument and, of course, strict adherence to the nuances of technology.

Moreover, looking ahead, say the following: the slopes - it is mostly decorative addition, spot finishing the input / interior door, which will hide all the perimeter of the attachment point, and its actual installation run for 1 day.

The methods of making slope

slope is used to make the finished, "commodity" type aperture and strengthening of the door frame (input / interroom).

There are several options how to slopes:

  • sealing mortar and plaster;
  • pasting finishing boards with the same solution;
  • lining the perimeter of the liquid finishing nails or screws.

Divide the methods of formation of the slope: there are all sorts of mater

ials, and methods for their attachment vary.

Terminate the slopes solution - simply and securely in insulation.

Besides a slope without the void, does not bend, but "poor" design plan: you can somehow paint, give a good texture of plaster and only.

Finish the door slope

Another thing - the installation of the surfacing material: MDF, laminate, plasterboard, plastic panels, the slats - they are very reliable and look outwardly fine.

Finish door slopes is carried out on metal profiles or wooden bars.This installation is appropriate, if you see that in order to seal the voids have to spend a lot of solution.

But there is a nuance: need to contrive through trial and error to adjust the slope elements to each other in the corners and smooth at the same time to sustain their evenness in the same plane.


Any implementation of the slope there is one and the same preparation (see photo.):

  • canvas doors and a box glued over masking tape / film to insulate the surface of the solution;
  • removed all the projecting parts, which would interfere with priming and installation of slope (
  • recessed wiring, trim the protruding part is overwritten flush with the wall);
  • surface around the front of the box is fully primed.

Preparations for decoration

To properly make the slope, it is necessary to know the device:

  • 1st layer is always rough: primer, sometimes foam + primer for the purpose of insulation, a layer of plaster or just a piece of water-resistant gypsum board (glued directly to plaster);
  • 2nd layer - installation of input trim from simple paint before installation, even traffic jams.

opening Processing plaster

plaster is used as a rough coat before painting and doorway trim panels.

For plaster acts mortar with sand, sometimes plasticizers for fast drying, for example, the same plaster.

as preventing irregularities putty is applied.


technology is:

  • need to finish primer, sand with cement, trowel, level, putty, plaster, mesh and brush;
  • stripped from dust and irregularities of the surface is covered with soil on concrete, after soaking;
  • In terms put beacons: profiles can hold the mixture as a temporary adhesive;
  • solution is applied in the range of lighthouses and distributed spatula.After the equal level on beacons and kept the whole day;
  • putty to cement the cracks on the surface;
  • The finished surface can be immediately pokleit wallpaper or paint.

Types formation slopes

turn came to talk and describe the manufacturing technology of slopes in different ways.First, we tell about how the input is formed on top of the slope material solution.

finishing material solution:

  • Plasterboard, MDF, plastic, fastened with cement mortar or glue to leveled and primed surface - and you're done!The whole essence of the technology;
  • Mark the level of the slope, and then check the entire perimeter for deviation from vertical level;
  • Fill all the space of the solution so that ultimately the level of the slope was lower primer level.When it dries, align it (plaster), smooth out a little sandpaper fine grain all exposed irregularities;
  • Apply on the surface of the slope and the adhesive material itself.Place them on the mounting location and press down;
  • While the solution has not yet been started, check the level of all surface and manually correct the material as necessary.If there is clearance between itself and the wall paneling (uneven surface), it is possible to seal the solution and then adjust this element separately.

It is also possible to mount the slope on the frame.


This is the most common type of formation of slopes, with the participation of the selected finish.

How to do it - at first a little bit about the technology, and then specifically for each case:

  • Despite the fact that the solution is not used at all, the area around the front door under the slopes necessarily primed to slopes over time, just do not fell;
  • slopes As used mainly with an angular cut slats (45 degrees in the corners);
  • Wall attain to the level (applied plaster), and with the proviso that the thickness of the slope with the frame will eventually be flush with the surface of the front door frame, but will not act as a millimeter, it will be immediately noticeable;
  • frame slope is secured with dowels made of plastic with shock screws.Along the perimeter are mounted two pairs of input rail (only 6 units), which will support under the slopes.They placed themselves after slopes and joints.


A special case of the above-described technology, is that the material is another.But each has its own characteristics.

Slopes laminated durable, easy to clean, do not collect dirt, have a large selection of colors and appearance look noble.


Installation is performed as:

  • believe the amount of material for pasting, do the layout and prepare Spila panel laminate at an angle of 45 degrees;
  • when opening more than laminate width, the panel connected ribs from an aluminum structure: cut exactly 4 pieces, then planted liquid nails to the panels (panels across);
  • to slope into place flush with the box door, a stiffener can be made small Stroebe;
  • panels are attached with screws to the dowels, then all you need to close the bonnet lining of decorative strips or plastic corner.


The usual sandwich panel closes easily the deepest opening.

Installation simply do:

  • panel cut the desired size;
  • fasten the top screws as close as possible to the end;
  • set as a sidewall;
  • cut corners in the miter box at an angle, glue;
  • treat all seams transparent sealant, remove the excess.

easiest, fastest to implement and inexpensive way.The only "but" - the openings desirable as possible to insulate and seal the plaster.

Plastic slopes

If you take a lot of the solution, then mount the wooden slats in the opening, place the foam, fill with foam.


universal finishing material, which is used by almost all surfaces, even the walls and partitions are made of it.

Installation is as follows:

  • Cut the sheet of three panels - top and two side walls;
  • wetting stripped the original surface and put on her snake mounting foam;
  • Sticking our panel: panel presses strongly to the foam, remove immediately, wait 3 minutes and once again put on the foam.Because the foam has time to thicken and reliably grabs;
  • Remove the excess foam with a knife, putty closes corners.Sticking to them later plastic corner.



often used material finishes.

Mounting a little more complicated:

  • Getting rid of the gaps between the wall and frame doors with foam;
  • treated surface under the MDF primer;
  • Apply the beacons on the dowels plaster;
  • Alternatively rescue plaster facade.When this is placed in the mounting profile has not frozen solution;
  • basis for slopes MDF solution appears when it dries, it must be primed;
  • MDF panels are cut-to-size 2 sides and 1 top opening.Glue is applied to the top of the slope and pressed thereto until the item, the panel will not be accepted until the adhesive;
  • All gaps between the panels and the wall area are sealed, plastic, liquid nails.

Original ideas

addition to the usual plastic, drywall, laminate, there are other finishes:

  • If you have an extra strip of wallpaper, they can also be used to finish: a simple corner glued wallpaper.The only drawback - low strength;
  • Decorative stone: from thin panels of artificial stone, which is mounted with a special adhesive;
  • Ceramic tiles: a rare member of the technology, but with due skill correctly to saw the tiles in a pattern creates an excellent effect;
  • cork panels: expensive, but combined with the laminate and parquet on the floor.

Slopes can be made independently (manual with photos and videos to help).The main thing - to observe a number of nuances, the absolute flatness of the walls and the accuracy of the mounting material.


not neglect sizing calculations, taking into account the errorsa thickness of material and fasteners.

may seem, they say "in the eyes do - and so simple, nailed, twisted, put", but it is best to do both in the adage "Measure seven times - cut once."
