Is a repair possible?

I just bought a house and the basement has a walkout double door. Who ever installed it did not correctly squared/level it and the doors do not line up and one sticks on the bottom as you try to open it. Is it possible to remove the trim and try and remove the frame nails or screws to get it leveled correctly? I have some skill and can fix it if possible. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

Welcome to the forums!

A lot depends on the condition of the doors and trim but it should be doable. You will need to square up the jamb [assuming that is the issue] Some pics might be helpful -
I'm just the painter but the carpenters should be along shortly
