How Do I Fix a Door That Won't Close Properly?


The first and easiest way to fix a door that won't close properly is by first checking that all the hinge screws are tight. In case the door is sagging, push it up first with a magazine or book prior to tightening the screws. If the wood does not hold the screws tightly, you can bore it out and put in a portion of dowel. In case the door still sticks, you can try to expand the door opening just by driving a number of nails from end to end of the door frame and into the studs under.
