    Hello All,

    I would like to thank the wife's damn cat's for bringing me here today. They have torn up the wood at the bottom of the door frame where they come in & out of the house. I will post pics so you can see.

    It looks like the piece i want to replace is 2 3/8" wide X 1/2" thick. It is the piece that the weatherstripping is attched to.

    I was wondering if this is a question of just removing the caulk bead around the wood, popping it off with a chisel (carefully) and replace with new board & weatherstrip.

    Any feedback would be GREAT !!!

    Thx
    Andy

    Not so easy! If you pull out the weather strip you will see that it is one peice of lumber that has bean cut out for the door and a slot cut for the weather strip. So it's change the door frame. I did see on "this old house" years ago, they repaired it with apoxy.That piece of wood goes right down to the floor.
