Benefits of Professional Door Installation & Repair
Did you know having an improperly installed door can raise heating and cooling costs? The truth is poor door installation can cause the doors not to be sealed correctly, which can cause air infiltration. If, for example, there is a gap between the ground and an exterior door, air can escape or enter your home.
On the other hand, if a storm door is not properly installed, your home will not receive the protection you need. For expert door installation service, call the professionals at Mr. Handyman or look online for “door repair near me.”
Door Repair and Installation Costs
How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Door?
The answer to this question depends on the type of door and repairs needed. Nationwide, the average door repair costs around $228, ranging from $50 for a small ding up to several hundred for major repairs.
The door materials and design also impact repair costs. Entry doors typically have more expensive hardware than interior doors and are often more elaborate. For metal and high-end wood, you can expect to pay $300 and up for labor, prep, and materials to repair an entry door.
For these reasons, interior doors are typically less expensive to repair than entry doors. The cost for repairs to an inside door depends on how the doors are built (i.e., hollow, solid, etc.). Because interior doors are usually less expensive than entry doors, it's important to weigh the cost of repair vs. replacement.
In addition to the interior or exterior door itself, some door repairs require frame repair or replacement. Whether frame repairs are needed due to damage or rotted wood may not be evident until the repair work has begun. If your door repair calls for frame repair or trim replacement, you can expect the cost of the repairs to increase.
If your door hardware needs repair or replacement, you will want to factor this into your cost. For doors with sidelights, glass panels, and other embellishments, repairs may require special care or tools to get the job done right.
How Much Does It Cost To Install A Door?
The cost to install a door depends on many of the same factors as repair costs. The price for an interior door varies greatly depending on its construction, durability, etc. Installation costs will depend on the need for frame repair or replacement and other factors.
Exterior doors are typically more expensive than interior doors, so you can expect to invest more in entry door replacement. Entry doors also require specific framing, flashing, and other details to secure the door and protect it from the elements. For interior doors, much of the cost depends on if you are replacing or adding a door. Again, framing and other details will add to the cost.
Additionally, the door size and other factors can make a difference in installation cost. For example, if the door is a standard size measuring 30 to 36 inches wide by 80 inches high, it should be easier to find a cost-effective door. Other door sizes may require a custom-made door, frame, and customized installation, which increases the cost.
Many factors impact interior and exterior door installation and repair costs. No matter what kind of door you need to be repaired or replaced, you can count on guaranteed results with Mr. Handyman’s highly-skilled craftsmen.
