Solution for rotten exterior door frame
I had some water damage on the bottom 4 or 5 inches of my door frame and I wanted a solution that did not mean buying an entire new frame. Here ...
Council condemns 13 structures; still time for repairsThe vote, by Mayor Ron Sellers and Council Members Bob Bush and Cindy Proett, came after a public hearing during which four of the owners asked for time to at least repair the exterior of their houses or commercial buildings.
"I want to see this improved," Sellers said. "If it can be, I can have some patience. But it's not right to beg for more time when Mr. Maxwell has been working with them since August with no success."
During the hearing, Maxwell showed pictures of the structures and described a litany of problems, ranging from fire damage to leaking roofs, damaged foundations, leaning or bowed walls, missing windows and doors, animal infestations, mold, water damage, damaged or missing siding, collapsing porches or garages and more.
One owner, Keith Ullom, said that he and his wife had raised their now adult children at 1400 S. Maple and that he and his wife were thinking of returning to the house if they could have at least three more months for he and his children to repair the house.
Wave Without A Shore » We didn't get the door in…
While I know that mauling can affect the shape of a frame, there is no such thing as a board-stretcher, and even 5lb mallet-driven shims cannot make the top and bottom of this framework equal.

Jane did the brunt of the work, and collapsed, after calling Lowe’s. We only have to transport this one back and they will give us another one. I don’t know the total weight of this thing, but Jane and I cannot carry it when it is mated with the frame. We can lift it, barely, and since I can lift and carry 40 lbs, and lift 50, and Jane is stronger than I am, considerably, so this thing exceeds a hundred pounds when in its frame.
Well, if there’s a 1/4 difference between the compressed joint across at top and at bottom, that door’s not going to hang true. That’s our problem. We could bash the joint apart, and go ahead and screw it to the house frame, but given the ding in the woodwork and the missing screen, we are beginning to think this door was assembled at 4:58 on a Friday, and quality control was already planning their weekend....
