Front door jam replacement


My front door was kicked in and I need to replace the jam. How would I go about doing that?

Front door jam replacement


Depends on the type of door and the extent of the damage. Need more information and even a picture would be helpful. Exactly what has damage?

In some cases it may be easier to replace the entire unit.

WHO did it? May be covered by your insurance.

You can but jamb legs, but the age and type of the door will determine how complicated the install is.
Doors will have individual requirements.
