Are you a woodworker with a shop?I currently have a problem where my pine door jamb has started to rot through. I've had several contractors quote a replacement of around $950 for time and materials, but wanted to know if replacing an exterior door was a thing I could do myself.
The door I would buy is pre-hung, and is most likely a standard size. I am afraid that if I did it, it wouldn't come out well. On the other hand, I am thinking that the door (if standard size) and fits a standard opening, then it should be "easy".
Does anyone have experience with this type of problem?
Make a new jamb and prehang your door and install.
Making a door jamb is an easy job. Just look at your old jamb and replicate.
