I went to a see a newly decorated house the other day which appeared to have
new doors and frames fitted, on closer inspection the doors did not close
The house is unoccupied / not heated and the make-over was finished approx 2
The house is a 1920's semi-detached
One of the lintels appeared a little off horizontal indicating movement
perhaps? There are some small cracks on external walls.
As the door woodwork is recent, one would have thought that they would all
close properly. So, either the house is moving rapidly to put the door's out
or the timber is expanding due to the cold and damp weather?
Does anybody know what the most likely explanation for the above could be?
Many thanks :-)
