Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • The present application claims priority to pending U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 61/294,384, filed Jan. 12, 2010, the contents of which are incorporated by reference in its entirety.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention provides devices for aligning doors and windows during installation, and methods of use thereof. In particular, the present invention provides devices for properly aligning a door and/or window with the interior surface of a wall during installation.
  • BACKGROUND
  • When installing a window or door, the jamb is generally designed to protrude into the interior of the structure to be flush with the interior surface (e.g. drywall, paneling, etc.) of the wall in which it is to be installed. Aligning the window or door with the interior surface of the wall presents a challenge to installers. Installation often requires one person to hold the window or door in proper alignment while a second person nails it in place. The requirement for a second installer is inefficient and economically wasteful.
  • A nailing flange is often used to secure windows. These flanges are typically flexible and allow the window to move in or out with respect to the interior wall during installation, and even after installation is complete. Movement of the window at the nailing flange throws the jambs out of alignment with the surface of the interior wall. Movement at the nailing flange can be exacerbated by application of insulation around and behind the frame. Insulation, particularly foam insulation, pushes on the door or window causing a properly aligned door or window to fall out of alignment. The use of fiberglass insulation reduces the force applied to the window, but does not completely alleviate it, and does not address the other challenges of achieving proper alignment.
  • Installers often attempt to align windows and doors without any aid to set the distance into the room. A technique for achieving proper alignment involves shimming the jambs with wood shims to hold the jambs away from the rough framing. Nails are then driven through the jamb and into the framing. The process is not efficient because it results in holes being driven into the finished jambs, and requires assistance from a second person to hold the door or window at the proper alignment while the shims are put in place. The process is also time-consuming because a lot of shims are generally required. Further, the window or door may still experience movement if spray foam insulation is used, resulting in pressure on the window or door, making it hard to open.
  • If a window or door is misaligned, the jamb must be planed down or the surface of the wall must be trimmed. If the jamb and the wall surface are not properly aligned, the trim will not sit flat across the junction of the two.
  • The field currently lacks suitable techniques for accurate alignment of windows and doors during installation. Such methods would significantly increase the efficiency and precision of window and door installation, resulting in cost savings and superior end results.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention provides devices for aligning doors and windows during installation, and methods of use thereof. In particular, the present invention provides devices for properly aligning a door and/or window with the interior surface of a wall during installation.
