Heavy weight front door gone out of line

Postby paulmcr » Tue Oct 19, 2021 2:33 pm

Hi
I have a heavy front door (98cm wide). It has gone slightly out of line and now rubs when opening and closing (see attached picture of the door frame, this shows it has dropped slightly). I have tightened up the hinge screws yet it is still out of line.

Please advise, many thanks,

Paul

Hi paulmcr
Open the door slightly and push hard on the edge towards the hinges. Get an assistant to look to see if there is any movement you will then know what needs tightening.
