adjusting metal pre hung garden door
 
We are moving into a new to us home. From the great room there is a pre hung garden door. It consists of a normal metal framed door and beside it a large ( door size) crank out window. The door and window are in one frame. Both the door and window are rubbing against the frame when you close them. It almost appears that someone put in a shim that was too large and it is pushing against the frame of the door. We have not taken posession yet but I ant to be ready to fix that problem. I have had doors that rubbed before and I was lucky enough to just put in a few extra long screws from the frame into a stud and pull the frame away from the door. I do not think that will work this time. Would I have to remove the whole setup and reinstall?? Any ideas??

Thanks

What you need to do to fix the issue will depend upon what's causing it. When you get into the house, you will need to open up the spaces on the door sides to establish a resolution.
