New front door

My son installed new front door. The diagonals from corner to lower corner are with in 1/8 . Yet the bottom rubs a lot.We have tried to lower jam as far as possible which made it better. The space (gasket) on the lower door key side is a little wider than the rest of that side going up the door Any ideas?.

Did he just install a slab or was it a prehung? if the latter, are the sides of the jamb plumb? top level?

Put a 3" long screw in the top hinge to raise the leading edge of the door. The screw should go in one of the holes closest to the weatherstripping that you are sure it catches the stud behind the jamb.
