This particular door has 3 problems:
- Door sticks to the stops, due to layers of paint, this post provides couple options.
- Top door corner rubs against the head on the latch side when closed
- Neither jamb is plumb, which results in the bottom width being 1/4" wider than the top. Unsurprisingly, there's a gap along the bottom half the door when it is closed.
I'm tempted to drop the hinges 1/4" (there's a 1.5" gap between the door and floor), as it'd allow me to fix both #1 (per linked post) & #2 (and since the strike is already too low, I don't need to do anything to it). This leaves me with #3, and I'm wondering if I could just bend the bottom hinge knuckles to close the 1/4" gap although that seems like a lot.
I'm a bit wary of trying to move the door jamb, especially with the hardwood floor there (see picture below). This seems like the better way to fix #3, but doesn't address #2 and seems like a bigger project than I'd like.
Looking for advice, thanks!
