Repairing a damaged doorjambs can be expensive!
As upset as you may be after a break-in, you will likely be more upset when your carpenter gives you the bill for repairing the door and door jamb that has been kicked-in. A bill of $500.00 or more is common for repairing a damaged door jamb.
The reason is that the traditional way of repairing a damaged door jamb is extremely labor intensive and time consuming. The Hammerzone website has a great story about a woman that kicked in her own door when she locked herself out of her house. She was given estimates of more than $1,200 to replace her door.

We started this company because jamb repair was costing us a fortune
We realized that even if people were only breaking in to get out of the cold, we still had to repair the door jamb. We also realized that if we paid a carpenter $500.00 to repair a door jamb or replace a door and the people came back, we would be calling the carpenter again the next day. Typically, carpenters do not reinforce the door jamb when they do their repairs - they generally restore them to their original condition.
Now, you don't need to pay a carpenter to repair a damaged jamb.

Preventing repeat offenses
If you are repairing your door jamb because your teenager kicked in the door, then you may not be concerned about a repeat offense. However, if you have been burglarized, you need to make sure that the thieves will not be able to kick in your door again
. Homes that have been burglarized are 4 times more likely to be burglarized again because thieves know what you have. They also know that you have insurance and will replace what they stole the first time.
