door frame has edged away from the wall slightly

Postby baby_iconz » Mon Oct 13, 2008 12:13 pm


The door frame of a bedroom door has slightly detached itself from the wall, no more than an inch. But the problem is not that the door will not close has it has edged away down half way down. Is there any way the frame can be pushed back in? Or would a carpenter need to be called in?
