I installed an exterior wooden door in a former garage doorway
and the top corner of the door is not flushed with the frame
( it was a prehung door) and I had to cut four inches off the door and
frame to fit the doorway. The top left corner is sticking inwards about
one inch but it does closes all the way when you push on it into the frame.
The door otherwise fits fine and it is a lefthand inward opening door.I
have tried shimming the bottom hinge but no luck there. any ideas?

If I understand your description, one of 2 things is true: either the door is warped or the wall to which the door unit is attached is not straight. If the door is warped, return it. If the wall is distorted, you'll have to rebuild it or live with it.

HI TIM it sounds to me that your door jamb might not be plumb.put a level on it and adjust it in or out so the door hits the stop. good luck, i hope this helps
