Paneling to drywall


We are removing paneling and installing drywall. Do we have to install all new door jambs to account for the thicker wall we are now going to have?

Is there any way to remove the panelling and get thin enough drywall that you might be able to skip new jambs?

Matters on how many jams you would need to replace, but if its thincker then you'd have to modify the jambs

you can nail on jamb extensions of a suitable thickness to have the jamb about 1/16th of an inch proud of the drywall.
trust me, the 16th will make the casing easier to install.

If they are pre-hung doors they should have a "slip" jamb which will make up the difference in thickness. You will have to get the jamb apart rather than just pull the casing off.
