I have, I guess this is what you call it, a foam filled French doors
on the entrance to an outdoor deck. I live in Seattle and it's very
wet here in the winter. The foam doors seem to be swelling in this
weather. The swinging door interferes with the other door when being
closed near the top and it takes a small force to open them as well.
Is this characteristic with exterior doors made with these materials?
Just for giggles, try snugging up the hinge screws, especially on the
frame side. French doors are heavy, and most factory hinge screws are
way too short. The problem starting at the top is consistent with the
doors being loose on the hinges. If that solves the problem for a day or
two, replace the screws (one at a time) with longer ones. Hey, it can't
make it any worse, and it is a lot less work (and cheaper) than the
other possible problems and solutions.
