Cost of Windows and Doors Replacement
Cost means a lot when it comes to windows and doors replacement. Knowing what your budget is, allows you to decide on the style of doors to use as well as how many doors you can replace at a time. For instance, if you are operating at a tight budget, you would want to replace some doors or windows and then replace the others in future. However, if money is not a factor, then you can have all the doors replaced at go.
So, what costs are involved in replacing your interior doors? That is what Total Home Windows and Doors want to bring to light here so next time you are replacing your windows and doors you don’t have to worry. Generally, the average cost of replacing an interior door is $366-$1102.
New Interior Door Prices
The average cost of replacing windows and doors range from $30-$4500. This cost can be more, especially for fibreglass and wood varieties. This cost is more of the price of the door or window itself since labour costs are usually low. However, the material influences the cost significantly.
For example, doors with hollow-core usually cost $30 to $400. These doors are normally built with cardboard and honeycomb slats with faces of thin wood veneer. These doors are preferred in areas where noise isn’t an issue, like pantry or closet.
On the other hand, solid core ranges from $70 to $500. The core of these interior doors is normally engineered from wood particles compressed with glue. They are preferred in areas where privacy is needed, such as bathrooms and bedrooms. However, don’t confuse solid core with wood.
Solid wood interior windows and doors are usually expensive. They come in different styles with glass inserts. The cost range from $150 to $1000, though most cost $250-$600 depending on the type of wood used.
|Red Oak & Ash||$165-$325||$75-$95||$240-$420|
|Paint & Stain Grade Poplar and Maple||$100-$250||$60-$90||$160-$340|
|Cypress, American & Brazilian Cherry, Mahogany, Clear Pines, Birch, Cedar & Walnut||$250-$450||$105-$140||$355-$590|
If you are considering aluminium replacement doors, either bi-fold or sliding, you should be ready to spend from $300 to $2000.

Glass and Other Fittings
Fittings like design and the number of the panels, paint, finishing and any other additions to your doors and windows definitely shoot the price, regardless of the type. For instance, sliding windows and doors with glass inserts can be pretty expensive. One tip when replacing double pane window glass is to make sure the replacement glass has the same thickness as the original window glass. This will ensure the window fits snugly and there are no gaps between the glass and frame that could cause air or water leaks. It will also help maintain the overall structural integrity of the window.
Where to Buy Your Windows and Doors
Purchasing new windows and doors is not complicated, like buying replacement ones. You can get your doors from the warehouse or local hardware store. And if you need to achieve a unique curb appeal of your home, you can choose customized styles. Whether you need French doors with curved glass, doors made from rare wood, or slab with unique details, you can get everything from your local craftsman.
Adding Pre-hung Interior Doors
When you buy pre-hung interior units, they usually come fully with a casing that allows them to fit in the existing opening. These sets range from $50-$900. But this also depends on the accents and material.
When it comes to labour, this will also impact the cost of your windows and doors. Labour can run from $50 to $100 per hour, with the average cost being $75. However, this is also influenced by the location. In most installations, it takes three to five hours to complete the work.
A slab will cost you anywhere between $50- $400 on average.
The frame of your interior door will average between $150 to $350. However, this excludes the rough frame.
Each linear foot of the frame costs $3-$4. Trims are boards that cover the gaps left between the drywall and frame.
