You have the choice of many different Cincinnati area contractors to help you out with your home repair problems. Requests for door frame repair are one of the most common calls we receive at ProMaster Home Repair & Handyman of Cincinnati.
The first picture shows the common damage done to a door frame from objects being moved through the doorway or animals chewing or clawing at the door frame.  One might think that this damage is merely cosmetic—calling for a simple repair using wood filler. Next, we see what appears to be a small chunk of trim missing from the upper left hand corner of an exterior door frame.  Again, we might conclude that this is mere cosmetic damage.
Inexperienced or lazy painters tend to simply paint over such a wound.  Such shortcuts hide the larger problem for a time, but will typically exacerbate the condition causing the need for more extensive repairs in the future.
Gentle prodding at this door frame resulted in disintegration of the corner—revealing that the scope of damage was far greater than one could tell by just looking at the surface. However, if you have significant door frame rot as seen in the picture below, you will most likely wish to invest in a new door to match the new framing and trim.


ProMaster Home Repair & Handyman of Cincinnati is a great choice for those who don’t have the time or inclination to perform their own door frame repairs.
The door frame will wick water, the same way a tree does, and eventually rot if the frame is not made of a rot-free material.
Allow the filler to set for a few minutes, then remove any excess with a sharp chisel before it gets too hard. I start removing the brick mold by first cutting the caulking with a razor knife, then prying it off the frame with a flat bar.
I predrilled all of the holes for the nails, then used a galvanized finish nail to secure the new molding to the frame.
The following article and video will help you determine if your door frame is in need of a repair.
I've been trying to figure out how to repair a door frame on one room and a door of another thanks to my now 5 year old.


I will also share a few common causes of door frame damage and simple rot prevention tips you can do yourself. Our multi-skilled craftsmen represent a distinct advantage over other repair contractors due to their ability to perform numerous tasks associated with a door frame repair project. One is FrameSaver by Endura which uses a composite material on the bottom few inches instead of wood. The product failed and switched to the Minwax's product-high performance wood filler and ran out of the hardener just as soon as I finished my project.
