Doors stick after recent paint


Two months ago I painted my doors and door frames with a Sherwin Williams semi-gloss latex non-tinted white, using their new SuperPaint line. It's been two months and a couple of my doors still stick really bad. No paint is transferring between the jambs and the doors but it's enough to make an audible noise and require some elbow grease to actually open the doors. Any suggestions on how to correct this?

Doors stick after recent paint


If they are contacting at the lock side near the top where it was close before painting because of door sag due to improper installation, install one 2" screw color to match the shorter ones in the top hinge. H.D. carries them. This will set the reveal (gap) back where it should be. If the lockset is hard to turn after it engages, bend the strike tab towards the open door some to give more room when the door is contacting the stop perimeter while closed.

Be safe, Gary

Where should I put the WD-40 and will it remove or interfere with the paint?

Just lightly spray it on where it is sticking. It will not hurt the paint after drying.I would first check out GBR's instructions, if the doors are not aligned right.
