Door Unhinged?


This door is no longer sitting properly in the frame. Looks like I need to do something with the bottom hinge in order to re-align it. House is 26 years old.
Top of closed door, hinged right. Notice gap at top

    Did you check the top hinge screws? Sometimes those loosen and cause the door to lean a bit.

    If the top hinge screws aren't loose, then you can reccess the top hinge a bit further into the frame and the door. If that's not enough, remove the bottom hinge from the frame and slip a bit of card in and rescrew. Good Luck Dek
