I need some help fixing my front door. door frame damage

How can i fix this damage to the door? Obviously the weather strip is easy but the actual wood is scratched up, deeper in some areas than other. Can i use a wood filler? Should i just sand it paint it and sand it again?

I have not tried anything yet. In addition the door is scratched up, not deep but noticeable. Would I need to repaint the door? Thanks!

Any help appreciated!

Thank you,


  • A pic of the door may help. – user101687 Jun 3 at 1:26
  • It's going to look a ton better with just paint. And when you go to replace the weatherstripping, take a sample with you. (There's a few flavors of that type.) – Aloysius Defenestrate Jun 3 at 1:26
