How Much Does It Cost to Install Doors?

Your door installation cost will depend on the type, number and location of the doors you purchase for installation, as well as any additional features you choose for each, plus hardware such as hinges and handles.

Exterior Doors

Home Depot Installers offer a full range of steel and fibreglass entry doors, from front entry doors to patio doors, in any style, whether single or double, sliding doors, french doors and more.

Interior Doors

For interior door installation, The Home Depot Home Services can connect you with a qualified Local Pro in your area to receive a full cost estimate for your project and hire an experienced professional to get the job done.

What Is the Average Cost to Install an Exterior Door?

The average front door cost is $2,500 (single door, excluding sidelight), with a range from $1,500, for the most basic and budget-friendly options, to over $5,000, for more upscale exterior doors. The exact exterior door installation cost will depend on the number, size and type of the doors you want installed, add-ons such as window inserts, sidelights and transom, as well as any parts and accessories required for the project.

In Ontario, the average cost to supply and install a new entry door is $4,500 for a project that includes a pre-hung, single fibreglass door, plus one window and one sidelight, tax excluded. All figures include labour and related materials such as casing along the interior side of the new door frame, as well as removal and disposal of your existing entry doors.

How Much Does It Cost to Install Patio Doors?

In Ontario, the average cost to supply and install a new patio door is $2,100 for a two-panel, pre-hung sliding door, tax excluded. All figures include labour and related materials such as casing along the interior side of the new frame, as well as removal and disposal of your existing french or sliding patio doors.

The average new patio door price is $2,100 per door, with a range from $1,700 to $4,000. Your exact patio door installation cost will depend on the number, size and type of the doors you want installed, as well as any parts and accessories required for the project.

How to Choose Between Types of Exterior Doors

The type, style or material of the exterior doors you choose will depend on several considerations, particularly the unique needs of your home as well as a range of practical and style options you have at your disposal.

When replacing your front entry or patio doors, consider where the door is going to go and what you'll need in that location. A side entry door, for instance, may require something different from a front door, just as you'll have several reasons to choose sliding patio doors over french doors (or vice versa).

Consider the following: are you getting new doors installed primarily for aesthetic purposes and to boost curb appeal? Or are you replacing your old, worn and/or outdated exterior doors with something new and more energy-efficient?

Choosing Your Exterior Door Types

10 Factors That Affect Your Door Installation Cost

Number of Doors

Whether you’re choosing a single or double entry door, multiple exterior doors or just one, will affect the overall door installation cost.

Size of Doors

Choosing to install larger exterior doors may carry a higher cost than installing smaller ones.

Type of Doors

The types of exterior doors you choose, whether front doors, single or double doors, french doors or sliding doors, will help determine the overall exterior door installation cost.

Door Material

Choosing from fibreglass or steel for your front entry doors, or between vinyl or fibreglass for your patio doors, will affect your exterior door installation cost.

Add-ons

Upgrading your exterior doors with features such as sidelights and transoms will need to be factored into your front door prices and overall exterior door installation cost.

Glass Inserts

Your entry doors can be purchased with or without glass inserts. Doing so, as well as the size and style of the window glass you choose, will affect your entry door replacement cost.

Hardware

Door handles and locks are purchased separately from your exterior doors. The products you choose should be factored into your overall exterior door installation cost.

Labour

Your door installation requires the labour of a skilled Home Depot Installer. Larger or more complicated door installation projects may take longer to complete and carry a higher labour cost.

Your Location

Door prices, as well as access to materials and labour, may vary from one location to the next and will be factored into your door installation cost estimate

Warranty

All entry door and patio door installation projects from The Home Depot Home Services come with a one-year parts and labour warranty. Ask your Installer for additional extended warranty options

How Can I Customize My Entry Doors?

When choosing the right front entry door, there are a number of additional options that you'll want to consider to ensure your satisfaction and maximize the value of your exterior door installation project to your home. Each option will need to be factored into your door installation cost. Here's what you should know:

Windows

Glass inserts add a sense of style and class to your entry doors, but they're also a great way to brighten up your home's entranceway. The impact of windows on door prices will depend on the types you choose to add. Available in a full range of shapes, sizes and patterns, they can cover just a small portion of the door or nearly the whole thing, comprised of just a single pane or of multiple smaller ones. Often, the glass you choose becomes the stylistic centrepiece of your new exterior door.

Sidelights

One of the best ways to expand and augment your front entrance, whether you're installing single or double doors, is to purchase exterior doors with matching sidelights. Just a single sidelight, added to a single front entry door, gives your home a more welcoming appearance, a brighter front entrance and greater curb appeal. You may also consider expanding your entrance further by ordering matching sidelights on either side of your new door. Ask you installer about your sidelight options and how they will factor into your exterior door installation cost.

Transoms

Another way to bring more light into your home's entranceway is by adding a transom above your exterior doors. Typically comprised of a single window panel, transoms are available in rectangular or semi-circular options and are designed to seamlessly match your new front entry doors. Ask your installer about the many options available and how it will affect your exterior door cost.

What Are My Options of Energy-Efficient Exterior Doors?

There are a wide variety of energy-efficient options available for your new exterior door installation. As this is a standard feature on most exterior door products, it does not need to be added to your door cost estimate.

ENERGY STAR®-Certified Exterior Doors and Features

Many new entry doors (with the notable exception of doors designed with interchangeable glass inserts) and french patio doors are built with a foam insulation core and carry the ENERGY STAR® certification.

A range of energy-efficient options are available for sliding patio doors as well. Look for doors with insulated vinyl frames and double- or triple-paned, low-E glass. Some sliding doors are even designed with built-in blinds, offering you both improved energy efficiency and light control.

Whether you're looking for front entry doors, french doors or sliding doors, a Home Depot installer can help you find energy efficient options that are right for your home.

Adding Insulation Around Your Door Frames

This is perhaps the most simple and cost-effective solution to reduce heat and cooling loss around your doorways. All door installations from The Home Depot Canada include an application of spray foam around the inside of your new door frames, at no additional charge, for added insulation.

What Is the Average Cost of a Door Installation By Material?

Choosing Between Fibreglass and Steel Entry Doors

All entry doors from Home Depot Installers are available in fibreglass or steel, each of which has its own unique qualities. It’s important to consider the pros and cons of each material when deciding which one will be right for your home.

Door Material

Advantages

Disadvantages

Average Door + Installation Cost*

Steel Entry Doors

 

  • Thick, heavy construction offers superior security.
  • Won’t crack.
  • Generally, a more affordable option.
  • Blocks out noise.
  • Steel can rust over time, is susceptible to dents and scratches.
  • Fewer style and colour options than fibreglass.
  • Absorbs heat, which can make steel doors hot or cold to the touch.

 

$2,200

Fibreglass Entry Doors

 

  • Lasts longer than steel doors because they don’t rust.
  • Available in a wide range of styles and colours; unlike steel, can be painted to match the home.
  • Available faux-wood designs closely mimic the look and feel of real wooden doors.
  • Weatherproof and low-maintenance; won’t expand and contract with temperature changes.

While generally very durable and built to last, they can crack if hit hard; fortunately, cracks can usually be repaired without too much difficulty.

$4,500

Can I Save Money by Installing My Own Doors?

It is possible for you to save some money on your exterior door installation cost by purchasing high-quality entry doors, sliding doors or French patio doors directly from a Home Depot store and installing them yourself. However, hiring a Home Depot Installer to measure and customize new exterior doors opens you up to a much wider range of options and possibilities to meet the needs of your home.

As well, remember that professional exterior door installation from The Home Depot Home Services offers you not only the expertise and high service standards of our experienced installers, but also a one-year parts and labour warranty that's included in your exterior door installation cost.

For interior doors, The Home Depot carries a full range of slab and pre-hung doors, handles, locks, hinges and other materials you'll need for your project. But while you can save on the cost of labour by installing interior doors yourself, hiring an experienced Local Pro can save time and help get the job done more easily.

In some cases, such as when you require custom door sizes or additional work around a door frame, professional installation may be your only suitable option to get the doors you need for your home.
