How would you repair this rotted door jamb. (pic inside)


Might need a gutter if you are getting this much rot.

I live in a PA condo and in my association that would be covered by the HOA. I believe every state has a uniform condominium act or something similar like PA has. So even if you agreement does not say that is covered your state law may require it to be covered. If the later is the case you would need to decide if it is worth fighting or not.

Thanks guys,
I did state my case to the association and I am awaiting their "verdict" before I proceed. And if I do end up having to do it myself, that link was most helpful, Thanks MCALPIN5.

But I noticed that the guy used an oil based primer with a latex paint on top. That's a no-no, and that I know!

Ditto - just don't go the other way around.
