Hi

Can somebody offer me some advice for dealing with a internal door that wont close properly.

When the door shuts the top of the door hits the stop whilst the bottom is ~5mm out (kicking into the room) - is the door has warped or badly fitted?. When the top of door hits the stop first it prevents the latch from working without a forced push in the middle.

However on the other side (hinge side) it is the opposite. The top of the door is 5mm out.


Hopefully the following pictures will explain things clearer better than i describe. You can clearly see daylight on the handle side.

you might be able to move the offending butt hinge in or out as needed to close the gap.but if its only just happened then i would say your door has warped?.
