Why is your door unaligned?
Unaligned doors are undoubtedly very irritating to deal with. They won’t close because they’re sagging. Even the latch or lock won’t close or fit due to the messed up alignment. The panel is always stuck out and in the way. An unaligned door can also cause floor damage because of the friction between the door and the floor. This friction can also cause damage in the frame of the door and weaken it over time. But what might be the reason for occurrences like this? Here’s a list of possible reasons of your unaligned door:-
- Loosened or broken hinges: The anatomy of a door consists of hinges, screws, striker and a latch or a lock adjacent to it. The hinges are the most important component since they are the ones who hold the door in place. Over time hinges might get loose because of the constant open and shut of the door. Loose hinges refer to the slight unscrewing of the screws that keep the hinges in place. Broken hinges mean that they have been damaged and hence need to be replaced with new ones. This process is quite difficult since the whole door needs to be removed to be repaired and that’s why hiring our highly trained experts is the way to go!
- Incorrect lock installments: A lock consists of a latch/bolt and a striker which is used to secure the lock. One of the most common reasons for your door refusing to shut is incorrect alignment of the stricker and the latch. If the bolt cannot enter the stricker efficiently and crashes with it then it is an alignment problem. This can also happen if the stricker is small compared to the latch. Not only the installation but if the bolt or latch is broken and is sagging then it can make the door stick out.
- Worn out weather stripping: Weather stripping is covering the door frames to avoid climate changes to affect and damage. It is done after taking the measurements and dimensions of the door. It is a possibility that the stripping is damaged and hence the door is unaligned. Replacement of the worn out stripping with new stripping can fix the alignment problem but this should only be handled by professionals.
