Door rubs on the doorjamb or does not latch

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Doors shall operate without rubbing on the doorjamb and latches shall engage with relative ease.


One-Year listed Work and Materials
Damage resulting from normal wear and tear and improper maintenance is excluded from the warranty.


Doors and latches not meeting the acceptable performance shall be repaired.


Confirm proper operation of the doors during the walk-through. Defects discovered after the walk-through will be covered under the warranty if they result from the builder's work. Slight pressure may be required to engage the latch. Seasonal humidity levels may cause doors and jambs to swell, resulting in temporary rubbing; this is acceptable.
