As part of a remodel, I removed two glass French doors and used paint stripper to remove the old paint. I then sanded to raw wood and applied an undercoat and two layers of finish paint. I installed new satin nickel 4Ē hinges. The hinges didnít line up perfectly and had to loosen the screws in the jamb bracket to get the doors reinstalled. Now the doors donít close properly. The doors rub against each other. Iíve rechecked the proper installation of the hinges. The upper and lower jamb locks on the inactive door donít slide into their mortises. What has happened to these doors? Is it possible that the new hinges are just slightly wider, thereby causing the doors to rub. How do I fix the doors?
Should I rip a small amount of the door so they close. If so which door and do I rip the hinge side or the side where the doors rub?
