Entry Door Creaks
Hi, I recently had my storm door jamb replaced (it had been severely splintered), but now when I swing open the entry door, there is a loud creaking noise (great for Halloween!) coming from the top of the jamb when the door is at its maximum swing position. The top door hinge itself is not making the noise, but when I unscrew the hinge and swing the door open, the sound stops. The new storm door jamb had been screwed in securely into the entry door jamb area, and on the outside, brick moulding was nailed into the storm door jamb.
Any ideas? I'm hoping some well placed screws will get rid of the creaking noise, but the jamb/brick moulding seems very secure already.

This is my guess, or something similar (hinge binding/rubbing on molding somewhere ). The short term fix would be to lubricate the point of rubbing, the permanent fix would be to increase the distance between the offending hinge and the molding.
