“Right, I’m here today to show you how to re-align a door. If yours is sticking, like this one is, and catching on the frame, the first thing I would do is check the hinges, because in this door, as you can see, they are loose which is causing the door to drop.” 

“What I would then do is try and tighten all the screws on the door, and then on the frame to check they are not loose. If you find that the screws are just turning when you tighten them up, you may need to try putting a bigger screw in.”

“If you find tighten the screws up, and you find that they are just spinning, and you use bigger screws, and that hasn’t worked, a tip you can use is to get some match sticks with heads taken off – you can use them as raw plugs as I demonstrate.”

“You’ve got to undo the hinge from the frame, like so – it can be a bit tricky! Get some match sticks with the head removed, and what you can do is tap them into the timber, and they will then act as a raw plug. Once they’re in as far as they will go, just snap them off until it’s flush, and then you can re-attach the hinge.”

“Let’s see if that’s done it. There we go! If you find that it hasn’t done it for any reason, by all means give us a call and we can come and sort it out for you.”
