    Hi again, sorry to be a pain. Looks like my door frame wasn't centered correctly and now when i put the trim on there is a 1/4" gap on one side. It is about the top 1/3 of the door and slowly tapers to flush in the middle. Here is a pic. to show you. What can i do about this? Just caulk?

    Yes caulk would be fine or any other filler. Iv used caulk before without trouble just have to repaint over it every now and again. You will find most walls are uneven and probably will have to use more caulk....

    now i know what is wrong, the builder didn't center the frame correctly. That is just shoddy workmanship. Samson Builders from Perkiomenville SUCKS!

    So you solved it already without filling or caulking?
