Removing metal doorway frames without damagin the wall beneath


Posted by Shai on February 11th, 2001 09:01 AM

I recently moved into a New York apartment building erected in 1943. The apartment has these hollow metal door frames, that appear to be an integral part of the wall (being that there's multi layers of paint over them).
What I would like to do is remove all these doorway frames, and replace them with simple prehung doors (the kind you find at Home Depot). Having never encountered this type of demolition, I would like to know what is the best way to remove these frames without damaging the wall beneath, so that installing the prehung doors will be easier.

Please email as well as post.

Thanks
Shai
