Forum Title: Repair or replace door? (pictures included)
My (wooden) bedroom door was shut too hard and is now cracked through the handle and almost end to end. So, I was wondering -- should I attempt to fix it or just get a new door? Also, if it's the first, what would be the best method? Thanks, Wes [IMG]<a href=http://www.imagebam.com/image/3734999895335 target=_blank><img src=http://thumbnails8.imagebam.com/990/3734999895335.gif alt=free image host></a>[/IMG] [IMG]<a href=http://www.imagebam.com/image/b92c319895334 target=_blank><img src=http://thumbnails8.imagebam.com/990/b92c319895334.gif alt=free image host></a>[/IMG]

Are these casement (crank out) windows? Double hung (both sashes move)? Vinyl clad or wood? Do the sashes tilt in? I'm not familiar with a Andersens that old. Most that I've seen use a thin clip that snaps through a slot on the frame. Although it takes a while to get through sometimes, Andersen Customer care should be able to help.http://www.andersenwindows.com/servl.../1116852780873 If you prefer, heres a good place to look at all types of parts and you can order online. They have been very helpful to me in the past.http://www.aaascreen.com/Catalog.html

If I see correctly, the crack is on the outside of the door so if you laminated plywood on it - the door might not close properly without moving the door stop. I agree it would make more sense to replace the door btw - welcome to the forums Wes!
