My house settles in various ways depending on the time of year and the
weather conditions. Right now, it's causing something it's never done
before and I don't know what to do about it. My French doors are not
catching when they're closed, and it's almost impossible to lock the
deadbolt. Just FYI, the French doors are double, both sides are actual
doors, but one side is always kept locked in place. I've been shoving
some wadded up paper between the top of the door and the frame, and
that's doing an okay job of pushing the door down slightly enough so
that the doorknob catches. But it's a hassle!
My main concern is that the door will accidentally/unknowingly be left
'open' and my cats (strictly indoor) will get out. The door has to be
opened many, many times a day because that's the only way for my dogs to
go out into the backyard to potty!
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
