When you close the door, should the door be touching the frame seals evenly all round, i have been told by the installer that there should be some tolerance even though parts of the door are tight and there are gaps elsewere. This is a new installation

all upvc doors will have a bend in the profile, the door should shut ok, but when you lift the handle the whole door should compress against the rubber gasket
