How to adjust french doors

Double French doors are vulnerable to building or ground movement that can shift the doors out of alignment. French doors occasionally are in need of alignment soon after installation because their weight causes them to settle. Regardless of the cause, fixing uneven French doors is not difficult for a do-it-yourself enthusiast. The job takes a relatively short time. When complete, the doors will align and operate as they should.

Hinges and Screws

Open both doors fully and stabilize each with a doorstop. Set up a power or cordless drill with a screw-tip attachment.

Tighten the screws in the hinges at the edges of the doors and at the faces of the doorjambs at each side of the opening. If a screw spins and won’t tighten snugly, remove the screw and install a 3-inch brass or silver wood screw that matches the finish of the original screws.

Remove the doorstops. Close the doors and inspect the alignment at the top edges and the seam where the doors meet. Proceed to the next section if tightening and replacing screws did not fix your uneven French doors.

Inserting Wood Shims

Determine which side of the jamb to shim by inspecting the top, outer corners of the doors where they meet. The door that is lower at the top corner indicates that the doorjamb on that side of the opening must be shimmed to raise the outer corner of the door.

Open the door at the side where the jamb will be shimmed and stabilize it with a doorstop. Use a wood chisel and hammer to carefully remove the vertical piece of casing along the side of the doorjamb.

Start at the bottom of the casing and insert the tip of the chisel into the seam between the casing and jamb. Carefully tap the handle of the chisel with the hammer so the chisel is fully in the seam and behind the casing. Pry the bottom portion of the casing away from the jamb and wall with the chisel. Repeat this at several places along the casing to remove the piece.

Pull out any finish nails left behind at the edge of the jamb and in the piece of casing with pliers or the claws of the hammer. If one or more 3-inch wood screws were installed at the lowest or middle hinge at the doorjamb on this side, remove those screws.

Remove the doorstop and close the door. Insert the end of a wood shim into the seam between the doorjamb and the framing at the wall just above the lowest hinge.

Tap the outer end of the shim with a hammer until the top corner of the door aligns with the top corner of the other door. .

Inspect the gap at the edge of the door and the doorjamb. Install additional shims, as necessary, so the gap is uniform from bottom to top. Reinstall any screws that were removed.

Score the face of each shim vertically along the outer edge of the doorjamb with a utility knife. Break off the excess portion of each shim by hand.

Reinstall the casing at the side of the jamb with 4d finish nails at the inner edge and 6d nails at the outer edge from bottom to top. Use the existing nail holes as guides and drive the nails just above or below an existing hole. Set the nails 1/16-inch deep for wood filler with a nail set and the hammer.

How to adjust french doors

French doors are elegant and allow natural light to fill your room, but they can be difficult to adjust. If the opening where your French doors are located is perfectly square, there is no problem. Unfortunately, the house can settle, the frame can warp slightly or repairs done to the frame can take it out of square and leave you with ill-fitting French doors. When this occurs, the doors need to be adjusted so that they will open and close properly. In times past, this was a very labor-intensive process that consisted of planing doors and drilling new hinge holes, but modern ingenuity provides a better solution.

Open the French doors and remove the hinges. There will generally be two hinges per side. Use a screwdriver to remove the four screws that attach the hinges to the frame first. Once the doors are resting on the ground, remove the door hinges. Save the screws for reuse. This task works best with a partner to hold the door steady as you remove the screws from the frame. But you can place pieces of cardboard or a thin paperback book beneath each door, to keep them level, before removing the hinges.

Attach adjustable French door hinges onto the doors. They are available at hardware stores or online, and they will retrofit into the original hinge mortise indentation on the doors and the frame. Screw them in with a screwdriver using the original screws.

Line up the hinges against the frame where the originals were placed. Use a partner to hold the door in place or use cardboard or a thin paperback book to level the doors out.

Screw the hinges into the door frames. When finished, remove any leveling material beneath the doors.

Adjust the doors so that they line up correctly into the door frame. Depending upon what model of adjustable hinge you have, there will be vertical and horizontal adjustment screws on the hinge face, or a single adjustment screw that adjusts both axes.

For horizontal adjustment, turn the horizontal adjustment screw with either the supplied adjustment wrench, a hex head wrench or a screwdriver. Start at the bottom hinge first. Turning one rotation clockwise will slowly push the end of the door outward. This adjustment works well if you have a gap between the French doors or the latch mechanism doesn’t connect. Turn the upper hinge adjustment screw to even out the gap. Do this on both doors.

For vertical adjustment, turn the vertical adjustment screw clockwise to raise the door. Start at the bottom screw and turn one full rotation. Move to the upper screw and turn it one full rotation to keep the hinges from binding, Repeat this process on both doors so that they swing freely and that the gap between the top and the bottom is the same.

Everyone loves a set of French doors. They welcome light into your room and create a more open connection between your garden and home. They’re incredibly popular with every style of home and to keep them at their best, it’s important to know some basic maintenance.

Overtime you may find that issues start to occur with your French patio doors. One of these being the inability to close properly within the door frame.

Having a set of French doors that don’t close properly can cause a number of problems.

One of the most common problems you’ll find with French doors is that they become misaligned, causing them to drag or not close properly. French doors that drag along the ground can damage your floor, door frame, and the door itself. Even small gaps in French doors will cause draughts and, most importantly, pose a security risk.

In this blog, we’ll look at how to adjust French doors so you can deal with common problems yourself. With a bit of time and some know-how, you can keep your French doors in top shape for years to come.

How to adjust french doors

We’ll walk you through adjusting patio doors. With just a little knowledge, you can ensure your doors remain in tip-top shape.

You’ll need a few basic tools:

  • A screwdriver
  • A spanner or Allen key
  • Door hinges
  • Some cardboard

If you don’t have these on hand, they’re widely available online or in almost any DIY shop.

Due to the weight of the doors, it is highly advised you enlist some help. Both traditional and modern French doors are hefty, and trying to lift one on your own can cause damage to either you, your door, or your door frame. This way you can also have help holding each French door in place, and reduce the risk of dropping them.

How to Adjust French Doors: Common Problems

There are a variety of issues you may encounter with your French uPVC door. These can occur anytime after the initial installation, but most shouldn’t be anything to worry too much about if fixed promptly.

Let’s run through the process of fixing French doors that stick, step-by-step. Hopefully, with this guide, you’ll feel confident identifying the causes of some common problems with French doors and know how to fix them. In the long run, learning some basic door maintenance will save you time and stress.

Why are my French doors sticking?

One of the most common reasons for French doors sticking is that the latch and the door are not properly aligned. This can happen for a number of reasons and isn’t necessarily because they were fitted incorrectly.

Many new build homes need to ‘settle’. House settling is essentially when your home gradually sinks further into the ground due to a shift in the soil beneath the foundation. It sounds scary, but it’s very common and is not a big deal in most cases. It can lead to foundational damage in severe cases so it might be worth checking for tell-tale signs like cracking in your walls if you think this could be the culprit behind your doors sticking. This can cause your door frame to misalign with the already installed French doors, and if left unattended can cause further damage to the entire system.

Another common reason is simple wear and tear on the door hinges. This is especially true with external doors that are exposed to the elements. All door materials, whether it’s uPVC, metal or wood are impacted by the environment. Changing temperatures, such as sudden drops or heatwaves can cause the material to expand and warp. This isn’t always obvious enough you can see it but you’ll be able to tell when your doors start to stick.

Luckily, it’s not that difficult to adjust even uPVC door hinges without calling in a professional. It also doesn’t take that long so with the right know-how, you can have your doors fixed by the end of the day.

Adjusting French Doors Hinges on the Door Jamb

  1. Remove the butt hinges from your doors. There will be two of these per side. Use your screwdriver to remove them from the frame and the door jamb. Be sure that you have a friend to hand, as these doors can be heavy, and you don’t want them to fall over.
  2. Using the original screws, attach the new adjustable hinges.
  3. Now comes the tricky part. Get your helper to hold the door level with the frame, and screw it into place. To keep everything entirely level, you might need to place shims at the bottom of the door to help keep it level. A few pieces of cardboard should do the job nicely.

This may be a little more difficult for older uPVC doors, as the material may have warped on the door. As such, this will be an easier task for more modern uPVC doors.

Once your French Door hinges are in place…

Now that your door is back in place, you’ll be able to make some actual adjustments. A set of adjustable hinges will allow for several different sorts of modifications, especially lateral adjustment to help straighten your French door.

Why Don’t My French Doors Close Properly?

If your doors aren’t quite parallel with the surrounding frame, they’ll start to drag. In time, this may cause your French doors to collide with each other, and can cause further damage to the whole door system. This misalignment will develop over time due to gravity and the warping of the frame. You’ll need to adjust the corner bearings, which are to be found on the bottom hinge. Remove the cover and turn the adjusting screw to lift and lower the leaf.

The gaps might well have appeared to the sides of your door, and in the middle, which will compromise thermal insulation. Measure the gaps carefully and adjust the bearings accordingly, making small adjustments to the top and bottom alternately, to keep the door parallel to the frame.

When you’re making these adjustments, measure carefully and often. It might only take half a turn of your Allen key to get the job done. Once you’re done, give the door a few test swings to ensure that they’re working as they should.

How often do I need to adjust French Doors?

It’s worth checking the alignment of your French doors every so often. Every six months should suffice for proper maintenance. You won’t necessarily need to adjust them this often, but it’s important to check. Regularly checking means you can check small misalignments from wear and tear before they become a big problem.

The good thing is practice makes perfect. Once you’ve made these adjustments for the first time, regularly repeating the feat will be easy. More importantly, it’ll save you a great deal of hassle in the long-term!

How to adjust french doors

French doors are notoriously difficult to install so that they operate correctly, so take the time to make any necessary adjustments.

The door opens, so that’s a good start. We’ve got the door secured to the framing, so it’s nice and solid now, but before I start flashing and tying in the outside, I really want to make sure these things operate properly. French doors are really hard to install so that they operate correctly. We’ll spend a little bit of time getting them adjusted, and then we’ll finish up the exterior flashing, just in case we have to move the door a little bit.

All Videos in This Series

Right off the bat, I can see we’ve got a little problem: The door is swinging out by itself. And the reason for that is we didn’t set the door dead plumb. Remember, we compromised at the very beginning of our framing job? This wall is out by 5/8 inch. We tried to cheat that, about halfway—but it wasn’t quite enough. What we need to do now is get the door closer to plumb. We’ll adjust it so that the door doesn’t swing by itself. But that will complicate the exterior trim; I might have to back-cut it a little bit. On the interior, we’re furring out the wall anyway, so it doesn’t pose a problem.

First things first: Let’s get this door to not swing open by itself. Then we’ll get into the hinge adjustment. I put the airbag back in at the top and inflate it a little bit, so when I pull the screws out, it’ll give me some friction; I can adjust the door and hold it in position. If you don’t have an airbag, use some shims and just kind of pin it.

We’ll pull out the top three screws to make this door plumb. Then we’ll do the same on the other side to make that door plumb. Now that the doors are staying where we put them and not swinging out on their own, we’ll check to make sure we didn’t make the doors cross-legged. With the doors closed, check the diagonal at the top first and then at the bottom. The doors are flush. That tells me they’re in the same plane. You’ll notice, though, that the joint is not even. That has nothing to do with being cross-legged; that’s an adjustment we have to make to the hinges.

I need to straighten the header out before I go any further. If the doors are out of alignment at the top, that will catch your eye. I’ll stick the airbag in at the top to hold the header straight. Drive a final screw in the top jamb, but don’t overtighten it. I don’t like to shim the top head because if there is any settling in the building, it’ll push the jamb down.

Take the shipping spacers out at the bottom because they will push the doors up and give you a false reading. Push the doors closed, but don’t latch them; if you latch them, they could pull back into position. If the reveals around the door frame are not even, we’ll have to do some adjustment.

One door is sitting higher than the other. The hinge at the bottom of the higher door is way too close to the jamb. I’m going to adjust that hinge so I get a wider reveal on the right side of it, make sure the door latches, and get an even reveal at the top. Then I’ll match the height of the door and the set. The way to adjust the bottom hinge is with an Allen key. If I turn it clockwise, the hinge will move out; counterclockwise, the hinge will move in. I want it to move out, so I’ll give it a couple of turns and then see what it looks like.

I check the reveal at the bottom with a shim. I use it as a gauge to then check the reveal at the top. Here at the top, I need to move this hinge in. I’ll turn the Allen key counterclockwise and bring it in just a little bit.

This manufacturer ships its jamb hinges without screws in two of the holes, so we can put color-matched screws in there. They’ll connect to the jamb and keep the door from sagging later on. Don’t overtighten the screws.

Done, and now the door looks nice and straight, with even reveals. The only thing is that it’s tight at the top, so we need to lower this door without causing a problem at the bottom. At the bottom of the hinge is an adjustment. I can raise or lower the hinge with the Allen key. As I turn it clockwise, I’m lowering the door. Now there’s a nice reveal at the top, and the door still swings freely.

Wow, now the left door is a lot lower, so it has to come up. It’s also tight at the bottom hinge. So we’ll adjust the hinge to fix the side reveal.

Now that the side-to-side reveals are pretty good, I’m looking for a nice and even straight line in the middle. Looks good. Sometimes you can’t achieve perfection, but I’ve come pretty close.

I want to bring the elevation of the door up so they match—not just for the appearance at the top of the doors, but also for the hardware. The hardware is predrilled here. I want the hardware to line up. I need to raise the door, and we’ll do that with the hinge. Counterclockwise is up. I’m going to look at that reveal at the top as I adjust. Looks good. Check the operation of the door and then set the hinge screws.

The doors look good and operate freely, and it only took me 15 minutes. It could take you two hours—depending on how much time you took at the front end. We took our time getting everything plumb, level and square. Now we need to flash it and then install the hardware, get it watertight, and air-seal it.

How to adjust french doors

When doors don’t close properly, it’s because they are misaligned with respect to the jamb, or in the case of French doors, with each other. The misalignment may be the result of wear on the hinges, or it may be caused by settling of the house. The repair usually isn’t difficult, although it may involve taking down one or both of the doors, and if they are heavy, you may need help. A certain amount of settling is normal, but if the misalignment is severe, or it happened quickly, it’s a good idea to check the foundation.

Close the doors to determine the problem. It may be that the edge of one of the doors hits the upper jamb, the doors don’t clear each other, or the latch doesn’t work.

Tighten all the hinges on both doors with a screwdriver if they are sagging or if the latch doesn’t work. If any of the screws keeps turning without drawing the hinge tighter, remove the screw and drive a longer screw in its place. You also can pack the hole with wooden matchsticks, after removing their flammable tips. Break the sticks off flush with the hinge, and drive the same screw into the packing.

Drive a 3-inch screw into the middle of the upper jamb to draw the jamb upward if either door doesn’t clear it. The screw may only lift the jamb by 1/16 inch, but that may be enough. Sink the screw head into the wood and cover it with wood filler.

Plane the edges with a hand plane if you can’t get them to close by tightening the hinges or raising the jamb. Mark the places that need planing, lift the hinge pins, remove the doors, and lay them flat on a pair of sawhorses.

Keep the plane flat against the edge of the door as you draw it, and set the blade to a shallow depth so it removes a small amount on each pass. To avoid chipping the door, draw the plane from the outside of the door toward the center — not the other way.

Remove the same amount of material from both doors — about 1/16 inch — then hang them and try to close them. Take them down and plane them again if they still don’t close.

Using 120-grit sandpaper, sand the edges of both doors while they are hanging, once you’ve finished planing them. Apply a coat of clear finish to the bare wood, or prime and paint it.
