34 inch entry door


My house was built in the late 1950s and has 34" exterior doors. Anyone found a good place to buy them? I was just going to get them at home depot as I have a gift card, but at least on the website they only show one all steel and we want one with some glass at the top.

HD and the like can special order whatever you want, although I'd recommend going to a buuilding supply house in your area instead. You'll probably get a better price, selection, and deal with more knowledgeable people. Thermatru makes a nice door for the price and Provia makes a great door.

Any rough price ranges for the brands you recommended? I'd probably just go with steel and primed door frame.

hjat you are looking for is not normally a stock item.

Go to your local HD and ask, they will answer the questions for you.

In insulated steel, primed, it all depends on the style, but I'd guess that you can find something decent for a few hundred bucks. The only way you'll find cheaper is if it was a stocking size at one of the box stores, but nobody stocks much for the 34" size.

All the cut down customer doors will usually come at a bit of a premium.

Certainly there is not more material in it and the cost to make it is roughly the same. Something about the "custom" tag drives up the cost from suppliers though.

I just re-read and noticed that you want to use your HD gift card. They can order you the door that you need even if they don't stock it.
