I recently installed a new exterior door (30x80 prehung 4" exterior walls). when I installed the door everything was perfect. The gap between the door frame and the door itself was perfect. The door was level, everything seemed great. 2 days later it seems as though the top corner of the door has moved causing the door to hit the latch side of the frame at the top. I used expanding foam to insulate around the door but that was right away and this didn't happen until 2 days after install. I dont have the trim installed around the door yet. is it possible that the hinges have sagged a little? should I just readjust the door frame? What to do??? Any help is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Andrew.

I dont think you should of used spray foam insulation on your doors most door installer do not use it, because of when it drys it does expand causing the door to shift,you can never be certain if you have the same amount on each side.if you have not done the trim work I would remove the door and take off the spray foam, do a rough test and if it is not level on all side use shims to level it, then silicone the edges of the door frame, then caulk outer edges of where the door
