How to tighten wood screws in soft wood frame for heavy door

Postby elvina on Wed Jul 03, 2013 5:28 am

We have a heavy door mounted with 3 hinges to a soft wood frame. The door was improperly blocked open with the result that the screws were pulled from the soft wood frame. The screws no longer "bite" into the wood and they cannot be tightened. Are expansion plugs like "molly" the only solution to this? Or, can the screw holes be filled with a wood like material to allow the wood screws to be used again?
