The hot weather has make it worse and cannot close the secondary French door; i.e. the other one is used first to open.

Cannot find any info on this type of hinge that makes sense. See two photos; one of the bottom hitting the bottom door frame and the other of the two screws in the top of the hinge, nothing in the bottom of the hinge.

How can I raise this door to clear the lip at the bottom of the frame?

As far as I know the light silver Allen headed bolt on the left of the hinge should wind in to lift the door. It is important to keep the number of turns matched through all hinges so write down how many compete turns on each bolt as you go so you can reverse if necessary and keep track. :thumbright:

Could you post a photo of the face of the hinge that’s atached to the door to help determine excactly what type of hinge this is as there are several and the all adjust differently.

Mot much adjustment possible in those hinges, sadly when the weather is as hot as it has been expansion can cause issues with Upvc doors.
