Door frame repair

Postby tg000001 » Sat Jul 12, 2008 11:11 am

Hi all, I had a problem with my flat door after a broken key recently and consequently used a bit of force. The door architrave has been broken off and the right internal door frame where the lock was attached to the architrave has broken away(4-6 inches of door frame).How much would a possible repair for this cost. Any thoughts appreciated.

Ive recently replaced my door architrave in my front room and it cost me about £9 for the timber from a local timber yard. ( I bought 3" taurus architrave.) Hope this helps.
