Frequently asked questions about door installation & replacement companies

When it’s time to install a new exterior or interior door, many homeowners might consider taking on the installation themselves. However, it’s wise to consider the big picture before taking on a door installation project on your own. Keep in mind that a poorly installed door can cause energy loss, reduced security, and possibly allow water to seep into your home. Door installation requires basic knowledge of carpentry, a host of tools, and a fair amount of time. While an experienced door installation pro can get a door installed in a matter of hours, the same task may take the less experienced homeowner an entire weekend.

A door installation expert will have the specialized knowledge to get the job done right. For example, they’ll know that a slab door requires an existing door frame that isn’t damaged, and that this type of door installation requires extra time and effort. Pre-hung exterior doors come mounted in a door frame and include hinges, lockset, and deadbolt holes. However, a pre-hung door requires more than one person to lift it. If you have any doubts about whether you have the skills, tools, or time to install a door yourself, it’s highly recommended to call a door installation pro for the job. Professional door installation will likely save you time and headaches down the road.

The labor cost to install a door will vary according to a number of factors. Your location, the availability of qualified door installation pros, and your pro’s level of expertise will all have a bearing on the labor cost to install a door. If you’re employing a master craftsman, or your door installation requires using premium materials that require a higher level of expertise for installation, your door installation project will likely cost more. Additionally, the cost to prepare the work site for installation—including the effort to protect existing materials and structure—will vary according to your home’s layout.

Typically, an estimate for the labor cost to install a door will not include repairs to existing structures or modifying any existing framing, so these tasks would add to the labor cost. Also, if your site needs to be tested for asbestos or lead, you’ll need specialized contractors, which will add cost to the project. The labor estimate won’t typically include permit fees. It’s always a smart idea to get at least three written estimates from qualified door installation pros, so you find the right pro for the job and know you’re paying a reasonable price for your door installation.

You’ll know if it’s time to invest in replacing existing doors when your energy bills seem to be rising for no apparent reason. Perhaps you feel a draft around the door when it’s closed, or spy light coming in from under or around the door. Of course, you can replace the weather stripping, but this is a temporary fix, because any seals around doors will wear out over time. If your door shows signs of peeling paint and splitting wood, it’s also a sign to consider a door replacement. These issues can allow moisture into the wood, which invites rot. If your door is sticking when you try to open or close it, it may be time for a replacement.

Your front door should provide protection from the elements and keep the cold, rain, and wind at bay. A solid, well-built, and properly installed front door can add security to your home, and can add to your home’s curb appeal. Look into having your door replaced if it shows any signs of deterioration in order to save money and avoid headaches down the road.

Pre-hung doors have been on the market since the mid 1950s. They arrive pre-mounted into a door frame with jambs, hinges, and a pre-drilled hole for the door knob. Unlike exterior pre-hung doors, an interior model doesn’t have weatherstripping or a sill attached when you purchase it. While prehung interior and exterior doors are easier to install than slab doors, it’s crucial that the door is the correct size to fit the opening. Most lumber yards carry a variety of common styles and sizes. Prehung doors can also be custom ordered.

Ordering a prehung door requires some decisions and specialized knowledge before purchase. You can choose between wood, wood composites, metal, and fiberglass, along with a variety of finish options for each door material. Then there’s the choice of solid or hollow models. Also, you’ll need to know how to measure for the right size door, including the swing of the door, the width of jambs you require, and the best type of frame. Therefore, it’s a good idea to consult a door installation pro to help you get the choose door for your particular needs.

If you’re considering installing a new door in your home, you may need to include the cost of investing in a few tools for the job in the overall budget. Many homeowners have a spirit level, measuring tape, and screwdrivers on hand. But it may be less common for the typical homeowner to have on hand a sill pan flashing kit, the right caulk, paint, and primer for the job. Beyond the tools that are needed to install a door, there’s the matter of experience and expertise, especially for tricky door installation projects. A qualified door installation pro can get a door installed in a matter of hours, while it may take a novice the whole weekend to complete the job. Additionally, an incorrectly installed door can add to energy expenses and reduce a home’s security.

When you’re looking at the cost of a door installation project, it’s important to look at the big picture. You’ll need to factor in the cost of the tools required to get the job done properly, along with the cost of your time. Professional door installation pros can get the job done quickly and efficiently, so when in doubt, it’s best to hire someone to install a door for you.

The length of time required to install a door varies according to a number of factors. First of all, you’ll need to take into consideration the condition of the existing fixtures and materials. You’ll need to know if you’re installing a slab door, which requires more installation work, or a pre-hung door which requires less installation labor, but comes with its own challenges. If you’re an average homeowner, and you’ve decided to install a door on your own, the project may take an entire weekend. It’s important to remember, too, that at the end of the weekend’s hard work the door may not be installed correctly. Small errors in the installation process can lead to more time invested in correcting them.

While, the typical homeowner could spend days on the task, a qualified door installation specialist can complete the installation in a matter of hours. A pro will get the door installed correctly, and on time.
