anderson french door lock adjustment
 
I have 2008 Anderson French doors. The dead bolt lock is difficult to latch. Any suggestions?

Can you figure out how to post a picture?

9 times out of 10 the operating door has sagged enough to cause the bolt to hit the bottom of the catch plate---

Take a picture showing the gap around the door--particularly at the top---

Also--extend the dead bolt with the door open and see if it is centered to the hole---

Then close the door and see if the two doors are flat to each other when closed--is one door good at the top but out at the bottom?
