replaced interior door and now...


i replaced my front door and now the handle for the screen door and the new door meet not allowing one of them to shut depending on which one shuts the fastest. Can i replace the door knob on the door to a shallow type of door knob? or should i replace my screen door with a new one with a handle that is higher or lower then the current?

It's really up to you. There are different style door handle sets that you can install, I'm sure some of them will be of a design that will give clearance to your screen door knob.

However, if your screen door is older and can stand an upgrade, that would work too, especially now that you have the new door up.

These knob sets are cut into the door where you install them. You need to be aware that the two doors handles need to be offset from one another before you start drilling. At this point I would see if I could modify the screen door hardware unless you really want to buy another door. You might be able to lower the handle and cover the other holes with an aluminum cap. Since I don't know the door type, this solution might not work.
If you do buy a new storm door, don't just drill the holes as per the door instructions, modify them so the handles are properly set.
