Exterior Anderson French Doors


Hi all,

Two years ago I had Anderson French doors installed to go onto our deck. I just recently started having problems locking the doors. I have to pull and lift hard in order to lock the handle. The doors open and close well. It's just the locking that's a problem.
Any suggestions?

Anderson doors usually have adjustable hinges.
Get some literature about how to use them if the doors are in need of adjustment.

Augie beat me to it. Andersen Frenchwood hinges are fully adjustable. Look on their website for instruction if your installer did not leave them for you. Long screws should not be the issue if the door was properly installed. Andersen supplies long screws with the door.
