Why does living room door no longer close?

by Wodehouse » Sat Sep 12, 2020 8:50 pm


My internal door from living room to dining no longer closes as it appears to not fit (rubs on the mechanism)

Just wondered if anyone has any thoughts as to why this has happened? Could it be swollen from the heat or are there more worrying concerns

Also how be best to sort this?

Any help appreciated :)

Hi wodehouse
Could be as simple as the screws in the top hinge are working loose or the hinge is worn. Doors do change with changes of humidity and temperature so if you need to adjust the fit of the door and there is a gap on the hinge side it is easiest to sink the hinges deeper in the frame.
