Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best material for my front door installation?
Two of the most popular options for front door installations are wood and fiberglass. Wood will give a classically elegant look to your home, but it will require regular maintenance to keep it looking good. Fiberglass is much more durable and requires very little care once installed, but it is usually more expensive.
Should I install a steel front door?
Steel is a great budget option as it costs less than fiberglass and wood. It also will not be at risk of rot, peeling or cracks like a wooden door, but may be vulnerable to dents or scratches. However, steel doors can withstand most weather conditions and are also available in a wide range of styles. You can even find steel doors with a wood grain finish if you want a more traditional look.
What does it cost to install a pre-hung exterior door?
A pre-hung door is usually more expensive because it involves purchasing a new frame. Prices can be up to $200* higher than other types of door, but this will include all the hardware such as hinges and doorknobs, plus of course the frame itself. They are also often cheaper to install.
How much will it cost to have my old door removed?
Many contractors will charge for this type of job by the hour, starting at around $70*. You may also have to pay an additional fee for the disposal of your old door.
