Re: how to fill the holes and gouge

@MitchellMc 

Thank you! My wish is installing a new handle. About the door itself ,the holes is near but not on the spot I will drill for handle.(image1) . But door frame is different It may be very very near the drill spot. And one surface is made by concrete.(imag2). How to fill it so that I can install a handle? Certainly bog is best because it can be drilled. I think detailed advises is very best. Also which handle is very important .

Re: how to fill the holes and gouge

As previously mentioned by @r23on, it's best to cut timber to fit the gap on the frame @vica. The timber can be shaped to suit the area and glued into position. Any gaps around it can be filled with a suitable timber filler or bog.

 

Are you able to source some timber to fit this gap? As a last resort, you could fill the area with Builders Bog, but timber would be more structurally sound.

@MitchellMc I want to buy timber to fill it. How about N.8030736? It’s size is 120*35mm. About handle, I want Lockwood 55mm Privacy Leverset. Wish your advised. Thanks!

That timber appears to be a close match and should be suitable @vica. You'll need to sand it down slightly to be flush with the rest of the timber.

 

The Lockwood 55mm Privacy Leverset would be a good selection. Did you need the ability to lock it from the outside or just from the inside?

@MitchellMc I can’t install handle. I want to fix door and its frame first, then ask someone to install it,
