Simple Tips for Fixing a Broken Door Frame

  1. Safety first! Before fixing the door, make sure you remove any nails from the area surrounding the damaged door frame!
  2. The next thing you need to do is nail some spare wood pieces around the area that is broken. This way, you’ll have a guide when applying the router to the area. For those of you who don’t know, a router is a power tool with a shaped cutter that’s used for making grooves.
  3. Adjust the depth of the router to the depth of the patch in the door! Make sure you have a straight cutting router bit before anything else!
  4. Get a patch and chisel the sides of it to make sure it fits in the over the area and into the hole!
