When a door warps, it is usually caused by moisture problems in
the door. This can often be caused by not sealing the bottom or
top of the door or deterioration of the finish especially on the
drier side. As to straightening one out, you might take it out on
a hot sunny day and placing the concave side on the ground. This
will tend to drive moisture into the short fibers and dry the long
fibers. It is a hit and miss approach, but may be worth a try.
If you do replace the door, make every effort to equalize the
moisture content on each side of the door and make sure the door
edges are well sealed.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
Old fashioned way to flatten a warped table top was to put a damp
cloth on the concave side, wait until it absorbs enough moisture
to flatten out and then clamp it to 2x's until it dries. Works
very quickly and easy to make it over-correct.
Most French things are naturally warped. For example, here's a story about a
Frenchman and his dog.
Not just ANY Frenchman either.
"Former French president Jacques Chirac was rushed to hospital after being
mauled by his own 'clinically depressed' pet dog."
The dog, named "Sumo," was being treated with anti-depressants and group
Chirac is expected to survive.
