Types and Materials

Types of Doors Suitable for Replacement

Not every type of door works for every type of opening, which is why when you’re considering door replacement, there are numerous options to suit different areas of your home.

Interior Door

Interior doors, such as bedroom, office, closet, and pantry doors, are vital for privacy and style. They come in various panel designs, materials, and can feature unique trim and hardware to match the room’s decor.

Bedroom Door

A bedroom door replacement offers an opportunity to enhance personal space. Choices range from solid wood for sound insulation to glass panel doors for a modern, light-filled aesthetic.

Office Door

An office door replacement should balance privacy and accessibility. Materials like wood or fiberglass with options for glass panels or intricate designs can reflect personal style and professional needs.

Closet Door

Replacing closet doors can maximize space and improve room aesthetics. Sliding doors, bi-fold doors, or traditional hinged doors are popular choices, each offering distinct advantages in terms of space and convenience.

Pantry Door

Pantry doors can be both functional and decorative. Options include frosted glass for a modern touch or classic wood for a traditional look, each enhancing the kitchen’s overall appeal.


Exterior Door

Exterior doors, like patio and entrance doors, play a key role in security, energy efficiency, and curb appeal.

Patio Doors

Patio doors connect indoor and outdoor spaces. Sliding glass doors offer easy access and views of the outdoors, while French doors add a touch of elegance and classic appeal.

Entry Doors

Your entrance door, or entry door, is the focal point of your home’s exterior. It should be durable, secure, and reflect your personal style. Material choices like wood, fiberglass, or iron offer a range of aesthetic and functional features.

Front Door

Replacing front doors is one of the most common types of exterior door replacements. What a better way to make a statement with your home, than by changing the smile.

Back Door

Back doors, though not seen by the street, are a great option for exterior door replacement. This is especially true if you like to host guests in your backyard.

Side Door

Side door replacement is most often seen coming from a driveway that extends all the way into the backyard. A great option to enhance your entrance to your home every time you park your car.

Commonly Used Materials for Replacement Doors

Choosing the right material is crucial in a door replacement project.


Fiberglass doors are by far the most popular, because they are durable, low maintenance, and energy-efficient. They can mimic the look of wood and are ideal for harsh climates due to their resistance to warping and rotting.


Classic wood doors offer timeless beauty and can be customized with various finishes, grilles, and glass features. They require regular maintenance but provide warmth and a classic look.


Robust iron doors are known for their security and durability. Their heavy construction and intricate designs make them a statement piece for any entryway.


Steel doors are known as the “builder-grade” doors. They are low cost which is why builders love to use them, but they run into issues with denting, energy efficiency, and believe it or not, but the wooden components of the door (yes, steel doors have wood) commonly succumb to rot which can cause it’s own host of problems.

The Door Replacement Process

Overview of the Door Replacement Process

The door replacement process involves several steps to ensure a perfect fit and finish.


Assessing the Current Door Condition

The first step in door replacement is to assess the condition of the existing door or existing doors. This involves examining for damages, wear, and how well it meets current needs in terms of style, energy efficiency, and security.

Measurement and Evaluation

Accurate measurements are essential. Measuring the door and its frame ensures that the new door fits perfectly. This stage may also include evaluating the surrounding wall structure for any required adjustments.

Selection of Replacement Door

Selecting the right replacement door involves considering factors like material, design, energy efficiency, and budget. This is where your preferences in terms of style, light, and features like grilles or glass panels come into play.

Preparation of Installation Site

Preparing the installation site might involve removing trim, addressing structural issues, or making modifications to accommodate the new door.

Removal of Existing Door

The existing door is carefully removed to avoid damage to the surrounding structure. This includes detaching the door from its hinges and safely disposing of it, if necessary.

Installation of Replacement Door

The new door, whether it’s a pre hung door or a slab, is installed with precision. This involves aligning it correctly in the frame, ensuring smooth operation and a secure fit.

Adjustment and Alignment

Fine adjustments and alignment are made to ensure the door hangs correctly, seals well, and opens and closes smoothly.

Hardware Installation

Installing hardware like locks, handles, and deadbolts is a crucial step for functionality and security. The hardware should complement the door’s style and provide the necessary level of security.

Weatherproofing and Insulation

Weatherproofing and insulation are key for exterior doors. This step involves installing weatherstripping and seals to protect against elements and improve energy efficiency.

Final Inspection and Testing

A final inspection and testing ensure that the door replacement is complete, with the door operating smoothly and all security features functioning correctly.


DIY vs. Professional Door Replacement

Choosing between DIY and professional door replacement depends on skill level, tools available, and the complexity of the project. While DIY can be cost-effective, professional installation guarantees quality, convenience, and often comes with warranties.

At the end of the day, if you’re not a door professional, your time is a lot more valuable to you by doing what makes you money, versus giving up your precious time doing the boring stuff like door work, just to save a few bucks. It’s more cost effective to just hire a professional who will do it the right way the first time.

Timeframe for Door Replacement

The timeframe for door replacement varies depending on the project’s complexity, door type, and whether it’s a DIY or professional job. On average, expect a professional installation to take about 4 hours or so per door.


Factors Affecting the Cost of Door Replacement

Several factors influence the installation cost of door replacement.

Material Selection

The material of the door significantly impacts cost. Wood and iron tend to be pricier than fiberglass or steel.

Door Size and Type

The door sizes and type of the door affect the cost. Larger doors or specialized types like patio doors may require a higher investment.

Additional Features, Accessories, and Customizations

Features like decorative glass, custom colors, or unique hardware add to the cost but enhance the door’s appeal and functionality.

Complexity of Installation (e.g., structural modifications)

Complex installations that require structural modifications or custom fitting will increase the cost.

Required Permits and Regulations

Some door replacements, particularly for exterior doors, may require permits, which can add to the overall cost.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Door Replacement

  • What is the average price of a new door?

    The cost of a new door varies widely based on the material, design, and features. On average, you’re looking at anything from a few hundred dollars for a basic model to a couple of thousand for something high-end. But remember, while pricing up the door itself, consider the added value and peace of mind that comes from professional installation. Experts can help you choose the right door for your needs and ensure it’s fitted perfectly, saving you the hassle and potential future costs of a DIY job gone wrong.

  • How easy is it to replace a door?

    Replacing a door can range from straightforward to quite complex, depending on your DIY skills, the type of door, and the tools you have. It might seem like a simple task, but it often involves precise measurements, heavy lifting, and ensuring a perfect fit to avoid future issues like drafts or security vulnerabilities. While it’s doable for a seasoned DIY enthusiast, for many, hiring professionals can save a lot of time and effort. Plus, you get the bonus of a job guaranteed to be done right the first time.

  • Can you replace an exterior door without replacing the frame?

    Yes, it’s possible to replace just the door without touching the frame, but this assumes the frame is in good condition and the new door is an exact fit. However, matching a new door to an existing frame can be tricky and often requires precise adjustments. This is where professional installation really shines. Experts can assess whether your frame is suitable and make any necessary modifications, ensuring a seamless fit and optimal performance.

  • How long does it take to replace an exterior door?

    The time it takes to replace an exterior door can vary. For a professional team, it’s typically a job that can be completed in a few hours, assuming no unforeseen complications. DIYers might find it takes longer, particularly if they’re not experienced. Time is money, as they say, and in this case, hiring professionals can be a more efficient use of both. You get a swift, high-quality installation without having to sacrifice a weekend or two, or in bad cases, way longer.

  • How do I know if I need a new exterior door?

    Signs that you might need a new exterior door include:

    • noticeable drafts
    • difficulty opening or closing the door
    • visible damage or rot
    • and increased noise penetration.


    Sometimes it’s not just about functionality but also about enhancing curb appeal or improving energy efficiency.

    If you’re unsure, a professional can give you an honest assessment and advice on the best course of action, whether it’s repair or replacement.
