Tim Carson asked:

May 20, 2020
We are being told by Toll Brothers/Coleman homes that all new homes have the interior door latches hit the wood trim before engaging the strike plate.
Toll Brothers/Coleman homes built our new home in Nampa, Idaho and during the 30 day walkthrough, we were told all new home builders put the door trim on so the latch hits the trim before engaging the strike plate. This doesn't sound correct, and neither of our other Semi-Custom homes we bought had this problem. Can someone look at the attached photos and let us know if this is the new "Norm"? They told us if we don't like the way all the interior doors work, we can replace all of the strike plates with longer ones... but it would be at our expense.
