Door Installation


I got a quote on replacing 2 entry doors, 2 storm doors and one interior door. The quote included $ 800 for labor, which includes removal and disposal of my existing doors. Does this sound reasonable? I am in the New England area if that makes a difference. Thanks.

Doors AND frames?

The quote included jambs for only the 2 entry doors. No other framing will be required. Thanks!

I believe it is in the ballpark. But, in today's economy, I'd shop around a bit more.
You should never start anything without at least three quotes.

Sounds reasonable- without seeing the details of the project. I charge $150 each for storm doors. Exterior doors ( with frames) can be a lot of work if they old door or frame is rotten or not the same size as the new door.

Thanks very much for the feedback. I am going to get a couple more quotes.
