jack stud split
1 Attachment(s)
In photo, above top right hinge the jack stud is split. Door opens and closes fine. Not sure if I am mistaken and that it is actually a king stud. Up close, several checks in the wood where the stud split. Smooth cut at top of stud.

FYI- I am the one that removed the drywall to get a better picture of what was going on.

Not seeing a split in that picture.
What went on that would make you check this out?
To me something looks off, that stud looks to close to the jamb. There should have been a jack stud then the king stud.
Is there a header?

The door was sticking and the trim was slightly bowed, the drywall was cracked. I assumed something was making the door stick so I took out the drywall to see the wood behind it. The stud is 100% for sure split.

After doing all this, I noticed it was the ADT security sensor was the cause. Took that off, door opens and closes fine.
