Four doors in my house suddenly not closing smoothly? What is going on with it?
Is this the same house that flooded?
To brief a decription to advise.
Are they sticking, closing on there own, not latching, ECT.
No, the house has never flooded. The couch was bought flood damaged from a furniture store. The front door closes on its own and is slightly difficult to shut. The bathroom door is difficult, guest bedroom difficult, and master bedroom slightly difficult. Bu slightly I mean they rub the door frame slightly. They did not do that a month ago.
Might be the humidity in the house. Did it do this last year? Check for loose hinges and check that they are square in the opening. They probibly need to be planed down a little.
Please don't plane your door. It's not it's fault. Check the hinges Adjust the frame this usually can be done with a hammer and a small piece of a 2x4. Gently tapping the 2x4 will move enough to allow the door to close. Check for settlement cracks and make sure doors are being used not abused. Good luck
