Frequently asked question about Front Door Replacements in Ottawa

How much does an entrance door cost?

The exact cost will depend on a few factors, including the amount of customization on the door, the size, and any other extras you may choose, such as sidelite units of shaped transoms. However, we suggest that you budget between $1,600-$5,000 for a premium entrance door. We can also provide a free, no-pressure quote upon request.

Are solid wood doors good for exterior doors?

Wood doors are not the best choice for an exterior door. We recommend sticking with fibreglass doors as they are maintenance free due to their durability, and offer increased flexibility as they are able to resemble natural wood and can be stained a wide range of colours. Fibreglass doors will also hold up better in climates as harsh as Ottawa.

Can I replace a door without replacing the frame?

You can, but this is not recommended. The condition of the frame is an important factor, as rotten door frames must be replaced. Other factors like the placement of the door hinges, insulation around the frame, and lock system type (multi point locking systems vs. regular lock sets) are all important factors to consider when replacing a door without replacing the frame. Not replacing the door frame at the same time as the door can lead to issues down the road if these factors are not considered. We recommend replacing both the frame and the door at the same time to ensure that it is done once, and done right.

How much value does a new front door add?

If you are looking to add value to your home, a new front door is a great way to do it. It is estimated that a new front door has a 68% return on investment in terms of additional value on the home.

How long does it take to install a door?

Generally, at Big City Windows and Doors, a door installation is a half-day to full-day job. There are a few factors, including how difficult it is to remove your old door and any patchwork that we will need to perform in order to ensure that the frame and door are adequately sealed. We usually complete these jobs in a few hours, and are out of your home by the end of the day.

Our Reputation is built on Trust and Quality


Very happy I was shown different windows styles. We went with the larger pane and smaller opening window. It's like looking through a clear opening. We have a big bushy backyard, so nice to see it so well. I actually had a couple deer come peek all I could see were these big ears in the dark. Our windows are lower. Also went with vinyl them. There easy to wash and remove when painting around them.
The installers were also fantastic, they even re-adjusted our front door from last march 2023 without my asking.
Thank you very much.


The company salesman was great rep. He provided all necessary information and facilitated us applying for the government-sponsored interest free loan.
Fourteen windows where quickly changed by competent, knowledgeable and courteous workers. They answered all of our questions and looked after any worries we might have had. The complicated metal sheet flashing of all the windows in our mansard-type roof was done very well. Everything looks great and the house already starting to feel warmer. No cold is felt on the hands when in contact with the vinyl of the windows and very little when on the triple pan glass. Thank you so much to all of the Big City Windows & Doors staff for a job well done.
