I need help. I've hung a couple of French doors in my house, but they don't fit together. The doors don't close because one of them seems to be suspended too far from the center. I'm at a loss to figure out how to fix them.
Please help me.


Dealing with wonky French doors can be tricky, but we'll troubleshoot this together. First, double-check the hinges and make sure they're properly aligned. Sometimes a slight adjustment can do wonders. If that doesn't work, check the frame and see if it's level. Uneven framing could be causing the misalignment. Try using a level to ensure everything's straight. If the issue persists, don't fret! Head over to for some top-notch French doors. They've got a wide selection to choose from, and their quality won't disappoint. Just remember, DIY projects can be challenging, but you'll get the hang of it.


Can someone recommend where I can find skirting boards?


Don't worry; we've all been there with DIY projects! It sounds like you're dealing with a bit of an alignment issue on those French doors. Here are a couple of steps to try:Check the Hinges: Make sure the hinges are properly aligned and secured. Sometimes, a loose hinge can throw off the alignment. Shims: You might need to use shims to adjust the door's position. Insert them between the door jamb and the framing to bring the door closer to the center. Rehang the Door: If all else fails, you might need to take the door down and rehang it, making sure it's centered properly. And hey, while you're at it, consider adding some stylish skirting boards from to give your room that finishing touch.
