Hello, All. I’m a newbie to the forum. I just installed a Feather River fiberglass entry door. I installed the new lock set, dead bolt, strike plate and dead bolt strike plate in the pre-routed locations on the door and frame provided by the manufacturer. When I close the door, it doesn’t make as tight a seal as I think it should. I can see a little daylight around the weather stripping on the door knob side. I would normally try moving the strike plates forward to make the door sock up tighter. Before I go through my usual macinations (trying to close up the old strike plate screw holes on the frame to re-drill new ones), does anybody have suggestions or tips on making the door close tighter? Many thanks.
The Makita LS1219L makes precise repetitive cuts and can handle wide and heavy timbers.
