It can, yes, but you'll also want to check the frame structure behind the jamb to ensure that wasn't also damaged when the accident occurred. If the underlying frame is damaged or cracked, you'll have a much bigger job ahead of you than a simple jamb replacement.

Answer: 
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)

Answer: 
Mark, I believe the piece of trim to which you're referring is called "Stop," or door stop. It's the vertical (sides) and horizontal (header) trim that the door strikes when closed. If you need more information, we'll be glad to help! Thank you.

Answer: 
Yes, up to 36" wide and 83" tall. For shorter doors the top of the jamb should be cut and a new dado cut made as the bottom has the patented PVC end. Refer to installation instructions available on the HD website for more and clearer information.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by it states that its a complete door kit states that its a complete door kit, but its not the bottom door threshold is not included nor is sold by home depot February 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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.. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not real pleased Basically the kit is two sides and a top. There are no notches for hinge placements, you have to notch them out yourself, and it doesn't even come with a threshold. You also have to dado the top of the two sides out yourself, in order to get the top to fit. I purchased this to replace a standard size door opening in my shop. Having never done this before, I asked the guy at the store if it was as simple as pulling the components out of the package and screwing them together. He told me yes, it was that simple, and considering that he had said the door dimensions I had were a common, standard size, I figured ok, I can do this. For what you pay, and no more than comes with this kit, I would say a person would be almost better off going out and purchasing the raw lumber and making your own jamb. September 14, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not as easy as you think As another reviewer commented, the kit requires a LOT of cutting and modifying. The hinges and such are not pre-cut. It would be nice if the kit came with a template to make the cuts. September 24, 2014
