door problem


There's a 36" exterior entry door and the bottom scrapes the hardwood floor when its open. It only can be opened about one foot before the floor n door make contact. They must have had hardwood installed over the top of some other flooring and didnt think about the door. What would be some recommendations for the fix. Should I quote the homeowner a new door install, or just remove the existing - shim it - and reinstall? Let me know what you think? Also, what would you recommended giving the home owner for an estimated cost for doing so?

does the door itself rub the floor or the weatherstripping on the bottom of the door. we usually took the door off and cut it down a little and then put a threshold in with the weatherstriping attatched. is the door plumb like it should be?

I don’t think you should “quote” the home owner anything.

If you have to ask such a question in a DIY forum, “Your Fired” IMO.

You're really not qualified to do the job if you're on the internet asking what to do.
