If a door isn’t closing properly, and the problem seems to be with the hinge side rather than the latch; you can call us for service. Or, if you are a ‘do it yourself” person, you probably will want to fix it. We are giving you here tips on how to do it with some minor adjustments at the hinges. Sometimes, when doors were not originally hung properly; or have shifted over time, and now are binding when you try to close them; or sagging at the jamb (the part of the door frame that the hinges are screwed into); you need to look at the hinges first.
Depending on the situation, you might have to shim the hinges up, or sink them lower by chiseling. You might have to reset the hinge further back on the jamb; so the hinge pins can turn. Or you might just need to sink some longer screws into the existing holes; to better secure the door. Here are the steps to follow. Stand on the hinge side of the door. Slowly open and close the door to assess what it is doing.
Assess the condition and positions of the hinges; whether they are sitting even with the level of the wood on the jamb; and whether the screws are tight. Shim up the hinge plates by loosening the screws that hold the plate to the jamb; sliding two wood shims under the hinge between the screws; until the plate is the same level as the wood. Screw the plate back down.
