Our team of home improvement professionals gave door replacement 5 out of 10 for difficulty. Solid wood doors can weigh up to 50 pounds. Not only are they heavy and cumbersome, but the hardware must be installed just right. Doors that are not reinstalled properly are likely to sag and stick.

Consider all aspects of the job before you start:

Some homeowners may be fully capable of removing and replacing a door on their own. Others may need a helping hand – especially if they are not comfortable handling large, cumbersome doors. Contact your local Mr. Handyman or call to discuss your next home improvement project.
