How Much Does It Cost To Replace a Front Door?

A new front door is one of the most satisfying remodeling updates; it instantly modernizes a facade and lends your home a polished look without a massive time or cash investment.

Modern door retailers, like ProVia, offer a wide selection of materials, hardware, and customizable features. All of these options can add up, meaning that the cost of replacing a front door can vary significantly from project to project. Understanding these options, as well as your home’s distinct replacement needs, will help you price out this eye-catching upgrade.

Average Cost To Replace A Front Door 

Out of 11,916 projects analyzed by HomeAdvisor, the average cost of replacing a door was between $477 and $1,389, for an overall average of $916. The lowest price reported by a homeowner was $100, while the highest price reported was $4,200. Their data shows that there’s a considerable amount of cost variation, which is why we recommend getting an estimate from a trusted professional before you begin your replacement.

It is possible to get a sense of cost early on by assessing which price-determining factors apply to your home, however. Entry doors are incredibly customizable – and naturally, some types of doors are going to be more expensive than others. Here are a few factors that affect cost:

  • Frame Customization:
    As with all remodeling projects, customization is going to add to the price. In the case of unusually sized frames, you’ll either need to find a custom door to fit the existing space, or the frame will need to be recut to fit a standard-sized door.  Installing a standard door into a standard frame, on the other hand, will mean a lower cost.
  • Frame Maintenance:
    If the frame of your front door is rotting, splitting, or warped, you can expect the repairs to add to your installation bill.
  • Materials:
    Different materials have different price points, as well as different levels of energy efficiency. Wood ​front doors give a home a classic look, but they’re the most expensive option when it comes to materials. They can also warp or fade in harsh weather, so you might end up paying for regular maintenance in addition to the installation. Fiberglass is a great alternative since it can mimic wood convincingly at a much better price. It also has the added bonus of being durable and energy efficient. Steel​ doors cost more because of their density and range from $500 to $1,230 to install. The higher price point, though, is offset by their long-term durability.
  • Hardware:
    Your door’s hardware – which includes its lock, handle, and any additional accessory (such as a knocker or a mail slot) – is entirely customizable. Of course, the more accessories you add on, the more your door is likely going to cost. The type of lock you choose will also affect the total cost. Cylinder, lever, and other classic styles will be on the low end of the price spectrum, whereas newer options like keypads and touchscreens will cost more.
