Forum Title: Is a repair possible?
I just bought a house and the basement has a walkout double door. Who ever installed it did not correctly squared/level it and the doors do not line up and one sticks on the bottom as you try to open it. Is it possible to remove the trim and try and remove the frame nails or screws to get it leveled correctly? I have some skill and can fix it if possible. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

I'm not sure I know what you mean 'as a kit' When the door was installed it was a prehung unit which means the door, jamb, casing and the threshold were all together and installed as a unit instead of individually. You will need to cut out the bad and replace. Ideally you'd replace entire pieces of wood but you can cut and replace just a portion. If you replace just a portion, the replacement piece should be coated with oil base primer [all 6 sides] and then use caulking as you install it so water won't get behind the joint.
