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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
