Using a Multi-Tool – Door Casing Repairs



 A recent example of Bob’s Jobs work – door casing repairs

Finn door repair #7


Bob was recently hired by a couple who indicated that their side door leading to their garage had some rotted wood around it. They were hoping that only the casing would have to be replaced and not the entire door.

Bob took a look and fortunately, only the door casing was rotted. He purchased a new multi-purpose tool for this and for future specialized jobs.

He used the multi-purpose tool to cut away the rotted part of the casing, leaving solid wood.

Using his table saw, Bob milled a pressure treated 2X4 to fit the door casing.  Note the “kerf” cut into the piece to accept the weather stripping.

After checking the fit of the piece, he laid in a nice bed of caulking…

…and then installed the replacement piece.




Lastly, Bob primed, painted and installed new weather stripping.  The door casing is now good as new, and insect and water resistant to boot!

    Great newsletter and again, it’s very informative. You would have my business, if I didn’t have my own live-in handyman.
