Over time, your door frame can become damaged through wear and tear or even due to an attempted break in. Wood can become rotten or split due to poor paintwork or weatherproofing, with extreme weather speeding up any minor damage. It is important to maintain a sound door frame, as this is as much a part of your home security as the door it holds.
A carpenter or joiner should be able to repair your door frame without the need for replacement and this will be achieved by the tradesman using patches to seal any damaged or split wood. The damaged wood will be cut or planed down and the patch glued and clamped. Alternatively, the tradesman may decide to cut part of the frame out and place a new piece of wood in the frame, securing the wood around it with screws. Minor splits can be repaired with filler, putty or glue before waterproof paint is applied where needed.
