New UPVC front door alignment prob, but only when warm???

Postby lwrighty » Tue Dec 01, 2009 6:32 pm


We had a new UPVC front door fitted around 6 weeks ago. Is it normal for when the temperature increases that the door can expand as when we close it its catching the frame slightly. It seems worse when its warmer... It was ok when it was first fitted... The door locks easily. (turning handle up) Should it just need some minor adjustment?

Happens a lot - get the fitters back to sort it.
