Replacing steel entry door


I have to replace a steel pehung exterior door in an old solid brick home. The damaged door was forced open which loosened the anchor screws. I tried longer screws but it did not work any suggestions on how I can get screws to anchor?

Are you replacing the frame or just trying to re anchor it? You can try a bigger diameter screw in the hole.

If you are replacing the whole frame I would think that you could fill the holes with some sort of patching cement and then drill new holes when installing the new frame. I would think the chances of the screw holes in the new frame matching the holes from the old frame would be slim. Hopefully someone else has some more advice on this.
