The plain jamb legs mean it can be adapted to left-hand or right-hand open exterior doors.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used to replace a damaged entry door jamb? The door had been kicked in, and the wooden jamb is busted and missing pieces of wood.

Asked by: painter
I purchased these door jambs to replace on that is rotted, and the other one is split down the middle due to a heavy storm door, and the door being blown open by strong wind. They have a great warranty, and are supposed to help seal out pests, moisture, rot, etc.

What is the wood piece called that the door hits up against when closed. Just a piece of wood trim?

Asked by: Mark
You got it , Steve. Indeed it is the "stop"... not to be confused with the "bump" (which stops the door from slamming door knob holes in the wall)

Ever Jamb Exterior Door Frame Kit is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Repairing a Damaged Jamb My 2 year old son accidentally locked my wife and I out of the house one wonderful Saturday while doing yardwork. Using the door kicking experience I learned in Afghanistan I destroyed our door jamb in a single kick. I discovered that ONLY THE TRIM held our entire door and jamb in place. How builders get away with this blows my mind. I completely shattered the jamb and trim and needed a replacement. I found this kit and some had said that it was difficult, but I gave it a try anyway. I agree with one reviewer that this kit is PERFECT for replacing damaged jambs, but would be much more difficult to fit than a pre-hung door for new construction. The bottom PVC part of the jamb is mitered to fit the angle of a sill plate. The part that you cut to fit is the TOP wood section of the door frame, then you must dado the top to attach the top plate of the jamb. A very old dado blade set that I was given wouldn't fit my circular saw and my table saw wouldn't raise high enough to allow me to cut the dado. Improvising, I used my miter saw to cut a line into the jamb stop and chiseled the leftover out using an oscillating tool...worked just like a dado set! I then attached my new jamb piece to the sill and the top plate, squared and plumbed my jamb (in a VERY unsquare, umplumb, and unlevel rough opening), installed the jamb, and then drilled and chiseled a new security strike set into the new jamb. Worked wonderfully! Cliff's Notes: -You need the following tools: Tape Measure, Pencil, Miter Saw, Chisel Set, Drill w/ Assorted Bits, Dado blade set or Oscillating Tool, Hammer, Nails (Pneumatic preferred), Level, Square. -You need basic carpentry skills or The Google Machine to accomplish this project. -I would strongly recommend a few packs of cedar shims to help you get the jamb true. -I would also recommend minimal expanding foam (typically labeled as "Window and Door") and caulk to seal things up nice and tight before putting up your trim.

I was worried that it would take a long time to arrive, but we received it before the expected date. My contractor was able to easily install it for our door missing its frame. The finished door looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Warranty! Door jambs haven't been installed yet, but they look well constructed, and carry a great warranty. Would recommend to anybody who asks about them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a rookie project. This product worked perfectly for me to replace my rotten jamb. It is NOT mortised for hinges or lock sets, because door sizes and hardware location very manufacturer to manufacturer . NOTE: If you have never hung a door or mortised a door frame this will be a very difficult project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should add value to my home The last door frame (all wood) lasted 11 years, then the bottom rotted away. I should not have to worry about this frame for at least 25 years (the warranty period). Now that's a good value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I am a general contractor and do a ton of business for rental property mgmt companies. I have to replace the exterior door jambs all the time from weather rot and unfortunately the occasional door being kicked in. This is a great product, is easy to use and has been a great time saver for me. I highly recommend it for both the contractor and diy er.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from anti-rot bottoms are the key- may be more than a basic DIYer can do The only reason to buy this kit (at the higher price) is to have the Poly lower ends to the vertical sections. However, this is great and should prevent the common rot that eventually starts to occur on all-wood jambs. As noted, if you do not have experience building door jambs (I mean, from scratch), this may not be for you. You do need to fully size it for your door and installation, rabbet the upper unions to mount the horizontal piece to the verticals, locate and route the hinges and and strikers as well as fit it up with a separate threshold. If you have only installed pre-hung doors, you may need help with this install. Installing my second one today due to sill beam, sill plate and lower stud (and the jamb) rot on 1895 Victorian.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fair for the price. Great idea. We'll see how it performs in the long run. Biggest problems I had with it were, when it came to mortising, a big knot at the latch and nothing but putty at the dead bolt, That's where the best wood should be, not the worst..
