    My backdoor was broken into and the jack stud damaged at dead bolt location. Does the jack stud need replacement since this is a load bearing wall?

      Cut in a splice piece at the damaged location and glue and nail it.

      I offer a phone consult service for situations like this. No easy one-sentence answer.

    How do you determine how many jacks are needed for a load baring header

      The answer is in the column above. You must have missed it.

    Hey Tim,
    I am installing a sliding patio door, and my plywood floor is not level. It is about 1/2 inch leaning left. How do I level the bottom? Can I use a 2x6 as a bottom plate? Or should I just cut a piece of plywood?
