Hi Rusla, thanks for sharing these. I am a bit confused by Marc’s reference to wood too as none of the front or back door frames are wood here.

I was just planning to take out the steel reveal on the inside as it is a very bad cold bridge and leave the outside frame as it is. Just wondering why you took the outside frame out too.

Our back door is original and the front is a pvc replacement which has been put inside the steel reveal. So really it and the pvc frame need taking out temporarily, the steel reveal replaced with something more insulating and the frame and door refitted.

    Hi Ed, I took the outside frame as its all made from steel and its empty inside and making cold bridge. Now all replaced with wooden frame and sealed. I can really fill the difference. Its just one main reason why I removed outside frame.

Hi Rusla, I have seen your question, I’m just trying to dig out some images for you regarding frame removal but at the moment they are proving to be a little difficult to locate.
If I can’t find them I will try to give you an idea of the process using another set of images that I have later today.

The process itself is pretty straightforward as the timber door frame sits in between two upright stanchions or steel beams is perhaps a better word.
There is one steel beam sitting just underneath the wood of the door frame. A piece of the side of the door frame needs to be cut with a saw as this will make for a much easier removal. Once the cut piece of timber has been prized away from the frame the rest should come away pretty easily using a claw hammer.
Just make sure that when replacing the frame with a new one, that you check that the new frame is deep enough as some door frames can be pretty shallow these days.

I hope that once I find the photos out, it will be easier to understand what I’m saying.

Regards

Marc

    Just started removing the door frame and is no wood at all in the frame it's all made from steel. It's looks like it's will be little bit difficult to remove the old frame, but removing ready in progress. Will add some pictures later.
