Door case too small after sheetrocking


Looking for advice on what to do with windows and doors cases after sheetrocking. The issue is before I had paneling, and when I put the sheetrock up the door frames and windows will have a gap, since the sheetrock is thicker than the paneling.

Do I need to redo the door frames and windows completely? Or is there another option? Just wondering if anyone else had this issue.


Thank you in advance.

Jb,
You need to add a jamb extension to your jambs. It should be the difference in thickness between your old paneling and the drywall, probably somewhere around 1/4" (which would be your gap showing now). You can either rip it on a table saw, or you may be able to find something the right thickness at a lumber yard or home center. The other dimension for your piece should be aprox. 3/4" to sit on your jambs. A brad tacker will fasten them up quickly.
