Question DetailsAsked on 4/15/2014

How much would it cost to install a new exterior front door and a new full view storm door.

It is currently a 36" door opening, no sidelights. I am looking to replace with either a fiberglass or steel door with a nice large decorator-type window. I priced a door I liked for about $360. I also would like to replace the storm door with a full view, probably a Larsen or like door with the screen and storm all contained in the door. The doors I looked at run between $175 - $300. I need to know what the installation cost would be for each.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Each door installation is totally different ,as each depends on the particular scenario, However , The big Box store's will usually offer Prime door installations at about $ 285.00 to

$485.00 and typically storm door installed for about $90.00 to $ 190.00 each.

They sub all of their sales out to individual subcontractors .

This is not a recommendation to use these subs or deals ,it is but to give you a cost range.

Typically , a General Contractor is the best service provider to engage as they take more pride in giving a Quality install ,but the price will typically be more $$$,

usually more $$$ equals better work !

Typically , a $6.00 cheese burger tastes better than a $ 1.50 whoppum special !

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

Although Angie's List doesn't provide info on average or "going rates" for various projects, when members and consumers submit reviews, they have the option to include that cost of the project.

With that in mind, one way to find out a very general price range on a project is to log on to ( and search for Doors (or any other appropriate category for your project, such as remodeling - K&B or ceramic tile), and then look at the project cost info supplied by local members and consumers.

Of course, probably the best way to get the most accurate cost information is to request multiple bids from several contractors. As the price will vary with work site considerations and individual contractors' approaches, getting multiple estimates will help provide a clearer picture of what your project will cost.

I hope this information helps!

Not sure who gave Ben the -1 but his numbers are pretty spot on for this area.

Answered 6 years ago by WoWHomeSolutions


Ben's installation numbers look OK to me too, assuming your new door is for same rough opening size as the existing. Perhaps a bit lean if you have vinyl or metal siding that is going to need special waterproof channel strips installed alongside the door.

If you are looking at widening or increasing the height of the opening, then check out the prior commentaries on front door installations in the Home>Windows and Doors link right under your question, as widening means adding a wider header and cutting into the wall, so more trouble and typically much more cost.
