Forum Title: Interior Door Installs help
Hello, I have a new home, unfinished basement that I am finishing and trying to install my first interior doors. I am looking for some tips. i have tried doing 2 of them so far and I am constantly getting binding at the bottom hinge side. sometimes it seems as though the door is almost pivoting on the bottom hinge.(so when the door closes and is nearly closed it almost pulls the opposite way on the hinge. if that makes sense) i have verified the hinges are installed correctly. Also, when i start the install i am starting on the hinge side and would then work from hinge to top to strike side. Anyone know why they are binding at the bottom and give a newbie any tips. Thanks.

They saw rot in the framing of the wall and were just going to leave it? And then they saw more rot and did indeed leave it? And they were trying to caulk a wet surface in the rain? You've got one lousy contractor!! I would contact Simonton and complain about the contractor. I've never put cardboard behind vinyl siding, so I have no clue what that's about. I've always used foam insulation. But it's obvious that you have had leak problems around those windows for several years. And these guys trying to caulk in the rain will very possibly result in more leaks.

Thanks for the reply. Boy I don't think it is bent at all. i will double check and also try possibly moving the hinge in or out. The bottom hinge is where the problem is though you believe and not one of the others causing the issue? Is the process I am following correct? Can i use 2 inch brad nails to secure it? thanks again.
