Improvement Project:

How to strengthen a door and make it harder to be forced open.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

Guide:

 

If you are looking to reinforce your door from a  potential break-in with a pry bar, you should consider beefing up the interior-wall area between the latch door frame side and the immediate wall stud that precedes this frame if this is not the case in your house already:  The gap between the latch door frame side and the wood stud should be filled with the addition of boards, such as 2"X4"X6' boards.  With the securing of these additional boards, and then the finish covering of drywall and the reinstallation of the door molding, the door and its frame, collectively, will look the same from the outside, but will actually be a lot stronger and a much more formidable obstacle for potential intruders.
