Replacing your exterior doors offers tremendous return on investment, makes your home more inviting and boosts curb appeal.
This page is all about residential door prices. We’ve priced doors by Type, Brand, Material and Typical Projects with Reader Submitted Door Prices that can help you gauge costs for projects like yours.
Our goal is to help you find competitive door prices on beautiful, high-performance doors, just as we’ve done with window prices.
The main exterior door types are front doors – single, double and with side lites, sliding patio doors, French doors, bi-fold doors and sliding pocket doors. Inexpensive steel doors such as used for garage entry are not included. Also, not all brands make all types of exterior doors.
These doors are produced in a range of materials with accessory options that allow you to tailor the look to the design and architecture of your home.
The most significant cost factors in residential exterior door prices are the manufacturer, the materials and quality of the doors, their size, style and complexity. Installation factors affect door cost too.
How Much Do Replacement Doors Cost?
They’re not cheap.
If you think of exterior doors, especially wood doors, as comparable to fine furniture, it will help alleviate sticker shock. Starting price is about $200 for a basic DIY fiberglass front door found at Home Depot. Door prices between $1,500 and $3,500 are more common. When premium door systems and installation is factored in, cost can exceed $10,000 per door.
Our tables are based on research, retail prices of doors and door prices submitted by users. Our tables typically include two columns:
Supply column is just the door and its accessories – hardware and blinds or light-dividing grilles, if included.
Installed column includes the cost of the door and labor to remove the old door, if needed, and install the new door.
What Are Our Door Prices Based On?
We use standard features to determine door prices. For example, glass or glazing is double pane, low-E glass, not more expensive triple-pane and Energy Star certified options.
Deck and patio doors, such as sliding and patio doors, are based on standard available sizes and two panels. Multi-Slide patio doors can have as many as 10 panels, but most have 4-6 panels. The point is that if you select something out of the norm, door costs might exceed what are found below.

Cost of New Doors with Prices Sorted by Brand
As with every component of a home, residential doors are made in basic, better and best grades.
What we have found is that a few brands like Jeld-Wen cover all three categories. Others, like Pella and Andersen, produce doors in the better and best grades – and door prices reflect that. Alside and several other brands specialize in affordable vinyl front and patio doors.
So, quality is a large price of door cost differences. Some high-end doors can be customized with a wider range of glass, hardware and additional options. Depending on the initial cost of the door, installation cost is 15% to 40% of the total cost.
We consistently fine-tune our door price tables to match current costs. We do this through product research online and by phone. Submitted costs from readers are a gold-mine of information too. When you’ve had your doors installed, consider returning to the Window Price Guide to share your door prices for the benefit of other readers.
