    Was so glad to find these kits. My husband has been trying to repair our old, rotted wood door frames for a while, but was only able to find full-size door frames or full composite. We didn’t want to pay for a full frame, as only the bottom few inches were rotted, and we didn’t want full composite. These pieces were the perfect size for the job and we are very pleased.

    These are a quality product and great idea! They included clear instructions for installation with an existing threshold. Wish there were instructions on how to install in conjunction with a new threshold. I also wish they were like 9 or 10 inches tall as I cut the rot out of my door frame a little too high.

  3. Gary L. Kaufman

    It was as as advertised. The instructions were clear but you need to have some skill in woodworking to cut out for the threshold section. Remember measure twice and cut once as there may not be enough of a stud to make a second cut. It is true that it could be longer in some cases. We will see how it does in about 15 years!

    Glad I found these kits Never have to worry about rotted door frames again. I’d like to see complete door frames. Fairly easy to install, really like this product.

    The perfect fix for a rotted basement door frame. I cut off the bad section with a plunge cut saw and used construction adhesive to bind the new section as I did not want to try and drive nails into the cement blocks. Came out great. Will definitely use these again as needed.
