Submitted by: adiganci – Budget: 300.00 Manassas Park, VA USA (Monday, May 30, 2011)

We are looking to have our front door replace to include installation. We are looking for the best price to have this work done. What would be cost of labor?

This door is old and damaged.  The hardware is worn out and needs to be replaced.  The existing door is standard sized at 3’0″ by 6’8″.

The low estimate reflects purchasing a pre-hung door and replacing the trim. The high estimate
reflects purchasing a slab door and preparing it for hardware.

Low estimate for materials and labor:

  • Pre-hung replacement door
  • New lockset and hinges
  • Primer and paint
  • Trim
  • Misc: nails, screws
  • Labor 3 hours

High estimate for materials and labor:

  • Slab replacement door
  • New lockset and hinges
  • Primer and paint
  • Misc: nails, screws
  • Labor 5 hours

If you are a contractor or a handyman, how much would this job cost in your area?

Low Price: $325

Consensus Price: $350

High Price: $405

  1. To properly install a door supplied by the client, with hardware supplied by the client. I charge $350. If the framework is rotted or damaged, that would be extra Painting is extra. Respectfully, Handy Andy

  2. I am in fort worth tx. We just removed an old screen door and the old back door and replaced it with a new 9-lite reliabuilt door from lowes. The total cost of the job was $405. This did not include paint or the price of the new door locks.

    Straight forward install of door, and trim is $295.00 plus materials.
    This would include taking away the old door if requested.

    My daughters boyfriend kicked my door in and cracked the frame and the locks are unlevel also. How much should I charge him. We have a court date coming up should I just take the hundred that he has offered or have the court make him pay for a whole new door and the damages of the frame where the door locks? Please answer in a timely manner. I believe he ought to pay for a whole new door plus the cost of damages.

    Can fiberglass side lights on a front door (made of fiberglass) and have wood stain & PU be repaired? If so where and how much?

    The cold weather is making the fiberglass turn to dust. New wood side lights are 368.00 each not including installation. So, I would prefer a repair of fiberglass that I can paint over with white paint.

    I would like an estimate. Thank you. Again this would be for Northern Virginia.

  13. How much is a fair price to have my door out front front door removed and replaced with new door that is me paying a handyman with materials such as new door supplied in the price? i received a estimate from a handyman of 455$ plus 50 to deliver and haul away the old door

    1. Not knowing anything about the specifics of your job, it is difficult to tell but the price seems reasonable. Front doors can be expensive. If the price of the door is included then price is very reasonable. Does the cost include painting the door, include installation of the trim and any caulking that may be needed? Get as many cost details as you can and don’t prepay for the materials. Payment in full should be held until the job is finished to your satisfaction.
