Handyman Darcy Westlind demonstrates some simple fixes for doors in the house:
- For a stuck door, visually inspect the gap around the door to see where it is tight. Adjust upper or lower hinges, depending on which way the door needs to be adjusted.
- A cardboard shim can be placed behind a hinge to adjust it for a better fit.
- Replace hinge screws with long — at least three inches — wood screws. Sometimes these will pull a jamb back into alignment and solve the problem.
