    I have a door going from my basement to garage. I am not sure if was not properly installed or what. Depending upon the time of year, it does not stay closed unless the deadbolt is locked.

    Hi, I've been stripping, painting and re-hanging some doors in a 50s apartment. For most of them I've been able to strip back the hinges to the bare steel, polish them and re-use, so it's been easy to rehang.
