    Back in 2001 my wife and I gutted and remodeled our kitchen and bathroom. We installed a prehung pine raised panel door. Before doing so, door and all trim was stained and urethaned. However, last year we noticed the door had warped. Does anyone have an idea how this door can be straightened? All the joints appear to be nice and tight.

    You can straighten a door fairly easily, Blane, but it's a long process and you should be certain that the problem is the door before you begin. Around the sides and top of the door jamb are three pieces of wood known as the "strike jamb." These are the surfaces the door rests against when it's closed. Remove the door and stretch two strings diagonally from the inside surfaces of the strike jambs. One string should travel fom the upper right-hand corner to the lower end of the left strike jamb and the other upper left to lower right. The ends of the strings must all rest against the inner surfaces of the jambs. Look where the strings cross. They should just barely kiss. If the strings are pressing together so that one or both aren't straight, or if there is a gap between them, then it's the jamb that's cattywampus and not the door. You may need to re-install the door jamb; lot of things can pull it out of true in eight years.

    Do this test and get back to us. No sense in straightening a door if it isn't warped.

    With all good wishes,

    Nick-

    I did as you suggested. You were correct. The jamb is out of alignment. This weekend I plan on removing the trim and reinstalling the jamb. However I'm only going to realign the side the door closes on since I also noticed about a 1/2" gap at the top of the jamb as well.
