Re: How to fix doorframe?
No, it can not just be 'nailed' back in place. The nails have nothing to be nailed to. As well, they will only loosen up and prevent the door from closing; or have it fall apart again.
The only right way to do it, is to properly shim out the frame so it square and level and screw the frame and shims into the surrounding wall studs. If They are metal studs, then you'll have to ask someone else. I am not a carpenter either.
I suggest, since your efforts there are business related - you bite the bullet and hire a carpenter to fix it properly. You don't want your customer to be reminded about the event and your business, each and every one of the 12 times a day they open or close the door and it doesn't work right, do you? I think it would be better if your client thinks to themselves - what a guy - out of his own pocket, he had a pro come in and finally repair properly the door that was giving us all these problems.
I'm not paying for the door, my uncle is if he has to go down to the main office and scrub floors. He was hired to paint by her, not me.
Plus, wiring is not my business. I've took care of her computers for 2-3 years now.
