front door too hard to open---ideas?
Our front door sticks so much that I need 2 hands to pull it open from the inside (and I'm strong). Part of it is swelling in humid/warm weather, but it's difficult all year. I've had a couple different people out to try and figure out the problem--one of them shaved a little off the top and bottom, another relocated the copper stripping, all to no avail. Once, I used one of those spray lubricants, and that helped a little, but only temporarily. This is one side of a double door, by the way; the adjoining door is always locked and has no knob. I'm a little worried that in an emergency, it would be too hard for people to get the door open. Any suggestions for what might be the cause of this problem, and what I should try next? TIA!
