    Hi Folks

    I recently moved into a new house and now the weather is starting to take a turn I noticed ones of my back doors has an awful draft at the hinge the worse of which seems to be in the middle. After taking a few measurements and using a spirit level I could see the door wasn’t aligned properly and probably needs rotated anti clockwise or pulled in tighter to the frame. When I push the door in with my hand the draft stops. It has T hinges and when I removed the cover to try and adjust it using online tutorials I found a different plate to any of the others I seen and don’t know what to adjust. I didn’t want to play about with it too much as I’m worried it will make it worse. I have attached some photos and any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi RandomGrinch

    Thanks for the reply. When leaving the house this morning I seen that my neighbours were getting new PVC doors and windows installed. I asked one of the lads for some advice and he looked at the door for me. It turns out there’s a bow in the door and nothing to do with the hinges etc. I give him a box of beer then went to screwfix and bought some storm guard strips and put them on both the frame and the door and this has helped a lot already but I’ll know better the next windy day.

    Thanks for the help
