The door to the kitchen is sagging quite badly, damaging the floor. The door is heavy, so before inviting a friend and taking it off the hinges, I wanted to ask for advice. Maybe someone has had a similar issue before.

The door has a decent gap on one side and no gap at all on the other. It is attached by drilled-in hinges with two screws at the bottom and one at the top. What do you think could be the best way to adjust these things? And is it even possible?

  • We need a little more info (and probably better photos). Have you tried tightening the screws?

  • This isn't a hinge problem. It's a jamb problem. I can't tell from your closeups how that all connects, though.

  • The hinge looks slightly bent too, which could be a lube/wear issue inside it.

There are not always internal screw heads for adjustments, as I found when adjusting a window with a similar arrangement. simply take off the door (open wide, lift), and screw in the whole mechanism into the door, and into the jamb.

It may take a couple of goes to raise the door, screwing the top hinge/s, but it may also help, if there's a large enough gap at the bottom, on the hinge side, to unscrew the bottom hinge a turn.
