Details: The Square Hinge

The Detail: Believe it or not, a square hinge is a tell-tale sign of the quality installation typical in custom home construction. Simply put, a square mortise is more difficult to achieve than the more common rounded off mortise. At Al Jones, we specify a 3 ½” square mortise hinge.

Why It Matters: It’s a small detail to be sure, but one that communicates a commitment on the part of the builder to go the extra mile.
