Tips for Aligning Doors and Installing an Outlet Over a Mantel


Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our March 9, 2019 broadcast:

John from Kansas – “We have done a total house remodel but are stumped with two things. We want an outlet above the mantel for mantel lights or seasonal decorations. We were able to run a wire up one side of the mantel, but the firewall interfered with doing a similar outlet on the opposite side.

“The second project is a bedroom and adjacent closet door. The house has settled, and the door didn’t close. We move the latch on the closet door but you can clearly see the height difference from right to left and it will be more noticeable once we paint the door. The bedroom door sticks and never clears the jam to totally close.

“Any tips?”
