my uneven floors are making my doors uneven
 
Hello to everyone, and I am in desperate need of help and advice, I recently decided to change my interior doors in the house because when I first bought the house I had my father change the doors, but he did such a lousy job that he cut them all wrong and all of my doors have huge uneven gaps under them. I had no idea that it happens to be the floors that are uneven. there is about a 3/4 inch difference at the bottoms of the doors. so when you look at the doors it looks like they were cut wrong . And now they are telling me that When I installed the hardwood floors the idiots never leveled the floors. Can this be the reason why my doors look crooked? Is there a fix around this that won't cost so much money or must I just ripped out the floors all over again so I can have straight doors? Please If anyone can give my some advice how to fix the doors?:help:

You need to figure out whether it is your doors or floors that are crooked... Pull out a level and start checking things out. Doors have 4 sides, if all 3 have nice, consistent reveals except for the floor, that is a telling sign.

Home sealed nailed that one----Find the problem area--then we can offer a solution.

Use a level on the floors and door frames----take a picture and post it.

Don't blame the floor covering installer---if the floors are sagging--that's a structural issue--not the job for a floor covering company.---Mike---

3/4"-1" is required if forced air heating system for the return air from the rooms.

Waiting for the pictures.....

I sure as heck wouldn't be ripping out new hardwood floors to level the floor where it meets the bottom of the door. Sloping floors in an old house add character unless we are talking about somtthing else. Pics would help but that would have to be one seriously messed up floor before I would tear it up.
