I live un PA and about 2 weeks ago we had very bad wind storm and got 60mph gusts. My screen door was blown open and caused the damage to the door frame you see here.
I am wondering what the best way to fix this would be? Do you suggest cutting that damage out of that piece of wood out and putting in a new block? Or should I be looking at replacing the entire strip of wood from the top to the bottom of the door?
I'm pretty good with DIY projects but I have never encountered anything like this and have never actually worked with doors. Based on the photos below and looking at the edge of that piece of wood, it would seem that I could pop that whole piece off top to bottom with a hammer and chisel and simply affix a new one and of course caulk the awful cracks I see around the door while doing so, then give it a coat of paint.
I am attaching several photos I took of the frame. Thank you for any help you can provide.
