Are you being bugged by a catching wooden door? This is one of those DIY jobs that we can easily find ourselves putting off and yet it is a really irritating problem and one you can solve fairly easily, although you probably need to remove the door. If you are lucky, then you may be able to do a quick-fix and simply tighten the screws of the door. If the problem has developed over time this may be the solution. This may raise the door enough to resolve the problem at least as a short term fix.
If your door is really catching on the floor as you drag it open and shut then you probably need to plane some timber from the bottom of the door. This will be the case if you have added a new thick carpet or other floor that the door now catches on. Or the door may be sticking at the sides due to moisture ingress which may have got into the door, maybe from previous damage.
To do this, you will need to remove the door and use either a hand planer or sander on the edge of the door that is catching. You may want to finish the job with some sand paper if you are left with a rough edge. It is very important that you then varnish or paint the door to match the existing finish to prevent moisture from getting into the door construction and therefore having a similar problem again.
