I have two storm doors which were slung open by gusty winds and ripped the door piston right out of the jam. I cannot reattach them now because a sizeable chunk of
wood came out as well, and leaves me no place to anchor it. What now? The door jams
are only 4 Yrs old.

i had the same problem (twice) & solved it by getting thin piece of pressed board (same as used for backs in those put-it-together yourself furniture). I cut to cover the entire jam, used long wood screws to attach corners and evenly down both sides, painted and reattached storm door. I'm sure there may be a more professional way, but this was cheap, looks fine, and has held up for many years. I also attached a heavy chain to the top of the door to keep it from blowing too far open again (whole kit sold in storm door replacement parts area home improvement stores). Good luck if you go with this!
