The total cost to replace all of your interior doors varies based on the products you choose and your geographical location. For example, prehung wood interior doors are easier to install than other types of doors, and could save you money when hiring a handyman to do the job.
When it comes to replacing your doors, some costs will be fixed, and some will be variable.
Fixed Costs for Replacing Interior Doors
There are going to be two types of costs when you replace interior doors: fixed costs and variable costs. Fixed costs are not negotiable, and will be the same for everyone purchasing the same product or service as you are.
When you purchase a door, this is a fixed cost. It will not change if you purchase one, two, or three of the same door. This price can vary greatly based on the kind of door you purchase, and the door’s material.
27EStore only offers the highest quality heavy slab doors. These range in price; our double and french doors are more expensive than single doors, and our doors with glass inserts are more expensive than our wood-only doors.
When purchasing a prehung door, you will need to consider the trim you would like to use to accent it. Trim typically costs between $2 and $3 per linear foot.
Purchasing the right hardware for your interior doors is important. The costs could be between $50 to $250, depending on your design choices. However, when you purchase our prehung interior doors, you don’t need to worry about the hassle of purchasing pieces like hinges. We include them with every door we sell so that they are ready to be hung in your home once they arrive.
Variable Costs for Replacing Interior Doors
Just like there are fixed costs, there will also be variable costs when you decide to replace your doors. Primarily, these are costs that can vary depending on the service provider you choose and your geographical location.
Labor is the main variable cost when replacing all of your interior doors. Handymen and contractors charge different prices, and the scope of your project, as well as your location, can influence these costs greatly.
Typically, a handyman or a contractor will charge anywhere between $40 and $90 per hour for labor. Workers in the southeastern United States tend to charge the least. Laborers in the northeastern United States tend to charge the most. Costs in the midwest and western United States usually fall somewhere in the middle; however, the average rate for labor, when taking all of these regions into account, is $70 per hour.
It typically takes a trained person between three and five hours to install an interior door, so labor costs will likely be between $120 and $450, with an estimated average of $210 to $350.
Another variable cost when it comes to replacing your interior doors is the style of doors you choose. Single wooden doors will likely cost the least to install, while french doors or pocket doors can cost more than double the amount.
What Can I Expect to Spend When Replacing My Interior Doors?
If you follow the prices of this guide, most interior doors should cost $200 or more per individual door to install. This estimate is on the very low end, with $300 or more per installation oftentimes being more realistic.
When added to the price of the door, you can expect to spend at least $750 per interior door. Still, the way these doors will make your home look will be priceless!
