door strike plate


I installed new door knob on front door. The strike plate needed to be replaced but there is not enough wood to align it with door knob. Therefore I cant put screws in where needed. Is there a way to build up the area to replace wood so I can put screws in to secure it?

A picture would sure help---

New woods can be added or a filler of some sort--However, the remedy needs to fit your situation----

Lock shops might have an over sized strike plate that would bridge the missing wood---

I find that if I try to drive in a nail, I leave enough skin and fingernail to fill the gap nicely.
