Forum Title: Problem gap at top of door
Is there a cheap trick to fixing a non-uniform gap at the top of an entry door (see picture)? The gap at the hinge side is pretty normal, then widens drastically as you go towards the door knob side. At its widest, the gap is actually slightly thicker than the door stop, so you can see light through it (which is really the problem I'd like to fix). Its weird. The door opening seems square enough, and the gaps are roughly equal and uniform on the two sides.

The tile guys should have installed a schlueter edge under the tile... for shame. Google Pemko bronze threshold. I sure you will find something you can cut to fit.

Looks like a steel frame fire door (commercial KD drywall) and was probably set out of level. Not much you can do for that. The hinge could be swaged (bent back) which would help a little but if you live in an apartment, that's someone else's job.

Take a square and confirm if the frame is square and the door is square. A half-a** fix would be to make thin wedge to glue on the top of the door to fill the gap.
