Fitting rising butt hinges

Postby jjmj243 » Tue Oct 21, 2008 11:27 am

Following the laying of a new floor covering I am fitting rising butt hinges to a door. Do I have to shave the top corner of the door to allow the rise and fall to happen, how much do I take off? Right hand hinges and I am referring to top right inside corner of the door, Thanks
