Door Maintenance Tips

Sticky Doors

Posted on May 3, 2014 at 9:45 AM

Inspect the door hinges. Often one or two of the original short screws that came with the hinges have pulled loose. This causes the door to sag and to stick or not close well. Remove the screws with the screwdriver.


Level the door with a helper holding the door for you while you install longer screws. Sometimes when a hinge pulls out, you may have to loosen the hinge on the opposite end of the door and place a small shim behind it. Put the longer screws through the hinge you are working on.


Tighten down any loose hinge screws. Often with time, these screws simply become loose.
