Forum Title: Help fixing storm door
We had winds across the city couple of days back and somehow the storm door was left opened and as a result, the storm door took a bad beat. Luckily, the storm door is not damaged but the connections ripped off from the frame (pics attached). Both the top and the bottom connection has come off from the frame and it pulled the frame along in those areas. If you could please let me know if we have to replace the whole side wood frame or if we can hammer it in and use wood glue or any other suggestions to make it good, I would so appreciate it. Thanks again for your time!

Welcome to the forums Cindy! Not sure what the purpose is of that piece of metal. Could you post a pic or two of it?

Sorry to say, that is not a separate board that can easily be replaced. Ypu would need to replace the entire door jamb which would mean removing the entire door frame... which is a possibility. You could certsinly attempt a repair with wood glue, bondo and use 3 long screws to attach the closer but the integrity of that jamb is shot and it will never be the same. If you attempt a repair you could cover it with a new piece, for cosmetic purposes. Next time install a safety chain. They are aftermarket devices that help prevent the door from opening more than 90 degrees. Many doors no longer include them... probably sell more storm doors that way.
