Quick Answer: How do you adjust a French door that has dropped?

Why has my French door dropped?

If this is happening to your French doors (also known as French windows), then it’s most likely because they have become misaligned. Either due to wear and tear on the hinges (if they’re older doors) or a poor installation (if they’re newer).

How do you fix a warped French door?

The idea is to bend or change the doorstop location to fit the bow. Shoot 1-1/4-inch pin nails through the doorstop as you lightly press it to fit the contour of the bow in the door. Do all three pieces the same way, bending them to fit the warp.

Why is my door not closing properly?

Wonky hinges are responsible for most door closing issues, so make sure to examine them before anything else. Loose screws or a door that appears to be sagging are the main signs that the hinges need a refresh.

Can you replace one side of a French door?

You can do both sides if needed, or leave one side as-is if there is no rot on that side.
