SOS.Cure For Noisy Slamming Door??? Help!!!
SOS, somebody help me please, I need your advise about “evil door”. I live in apartment on the second floor above the side entrance and entrance to the basement, which has laundry inside. The problem is the doors that slam so hard that I can fill vibrating walls and loud annoying noise. It is really TERRIBLE. The doors are metals and very heavy. They should be always locked because the building located in the busiest area of Queens, New York. Somebody, please help me!!!!!! I need your advice how I can bring the doors in normal conditions. By the way, the super of the building is not able to fix, even he tried so many times. The landlord will take a lifetime to take care of it. In other words, WELCOME TO NEW YORK. Lovely handy men, please give me a hint or at least some suggestions that will bring peace in my life. Anna.

Please write me to THANK YOU A LOT.

They make all kinds of adjustable residential and commerical door closers to prevent slamming, close doors safely, etc. They are relatively inexpensive and are easily installed.
Check out this site, for instance:
(I emailed you this same info.)
Good luck!
