Forum Title: Shimming Interior Doors That Slowly Open/Close by Themselves
I have two wooden doors that won't stay where I put them. One of them slowly swings to full open, the other slowly swings to fully closed. Both doors appear to be square in their frames when I look at the top and side edges of them. Where can I find information on what to do so the doors stay where I put them, or can somebody give me a clue how to fix them?

Before cutting your siding, make sure all will fit back in. Is the siding vinyl or wood or?? What is blue skin? Are you talking about foam board or a Tyvek type product? The flange of the window (if flanged) should be taped to the moisture membrane via window sticky tape. The Tyvek should extend into the opening to complete the barrier.

I agree with mossman, put your level on the side of the frame (not the molding) and see if it is plumb. Most likely is not. Resetting it plumb should bring it back to normal action. Of course plumbing the sides in the flat direction is important, too. That is where you will need the shims and longer hinge screws.
