Don't forget trim and threshold/transition/sill plates if you want to truly provide all door materials, and I assume you are talking pre-hung doors.

Click (in the Browse Projects area at lower left) on the Home > Windows and Doors category (or is it Doors and Windows) and you will find prior questions with answers for the costs (for materials and for installation) of closet, bedroom/bathroom, and entry doors.

Ballpark number usually $125-250/door install and miscellaneous materials - can be doulbe that if structural resizing of surrounding framing is needed, ESPECIALLY if going larger rather than smaller - also does not include any drywall repair or painting if changing size of rough opening. Can run as low as $100-125 or so IF exact same roughout size AND reusing existing trim, threshold, etc (or you provide new ready-to-install except for cutting to length). If you are doing all 7 together, that sounds like the better part of a days work for 2 men, so might get it for close to $100/door labor with that quantity, plus an miscellaneous materials. This assumes doors are pre-finished, so does not include staining or painting.

Be sure contract spells out what you supply and that they are to supply all other necessary materials, and have them CONFIRM up front that the doors and hardware you are supplying are suitable for the job - meaning you have to have them available for inspection (unboxed) when they come to bid, and make up a list of owner-furnished materials to attach to the bid. You have to be careful one the contract what is says, because commonly work is guaranteed only if the contractor is furnishing all materials AND labor - so this job is likely to have no warranty once he walks away, so you have to be sure all open and close and latch/lock properly BEFORE you pay.

I had 12 interior doors installed for $199.00 spring of 2013. Home Depot had a promotion whole house installation for $199.00 with Jeld Wen doors. I did not want my trim removed because it was in very good condition and I did not want any damage done to the walls around the trim. I figured why ask for trouble when I could go with a Door Slab. My Jeld Wen doors are six panel solid core. The routing, sanding and painting are done in their plant (Prime and factory finish paint). The opening of the door is measured with a door digitizer. If your opening is off from the standard the door will be made to fit that opening. I did a lot of research and I think I made the best decision. I received 12 doors, all the hardware, installation and removal of the old doors for $2693.00. Prior to the installation I called my painter and he said it would cost $40.00 each to paint the doors. Having the factory do the job you can not see any brush marks because they spray them, excellent job. JMTHEIDIJMTHEIDI
