Preparing for Interior Door Installation
Before your new interior door is installed, there are a few things that need to be done ahead of time. First, we measure the old door, jamb, and rough opening. Next, we measure the height and width of the door and make sure to round the measurements to the nearest whole inch. It’s important to remove the door and jambs to measure the rough opening accurately. These measurements are used to find the right-sized new door and jambs for your doorways. Then, the old door is removed once we have the correct door measurements for the new door.

Interior Door Installation Cost
Replacing the interior doors in your home is a simple, but effective way to elevate the look and feel of your home. Homeowners can choose to replace their doors for many reasons like boosting their curb appeal or wanting to refresh the interior design of the home.
No matter what the reason may be, it’s important that you consider the overall costs of interior door installation as well.
On average, installing an interior door does not cost as much as installing an exterior door. The cost of interior door installation starts from $178 and goes upwards of $398.
The estimates depend on a number of factors including the style of door that is chosen, the labour required, and the overall condition of the home.
Installing multiple interior doors can help homeowners save money during the same renovation project.
The reason for this is you typically will pay less to install each additional door.
Cost of Additional Door Parts & Hardware
When you are budgeting for the cost of your door installation, be sure to factor in the cost of interior doors and door hardware. Interior doors come in a wide range of styles and prices, from simple, solid-core doors to more elaborate models with glass panels or intricate wood carving. Door hardware can also vary widely in price, from basic knob sets to more elaborate lever handles or deadbolts. In addition, you may need to purchase special hinges or other hardware if you are installing a custom door.
By taking all of these factors into account, you can ensure that your door installation project stays within budget.
Below is the average cost of door parts and hardware (these rates may change depending on the market):
- Knobs/Handles: $10 to $300 each
- Hinges: $2 to $20 each
- Door Jamb: $100 and up
- Door Slab: $100 and up
- Threshold: $50 each
- Deadbolt: $15 to $300 depending on manufacturer and model
- Glass: Varies
- Door Insulation: $5 to $25
Door Installation By Material
Regardless of the material that a door is made of, the cost of installation does not differ.
Fiberglass doors are easy to maintain – fiberglass is a non-porous material, so it resists dirt and grime buildup, and can be easily cleaned with just a damp cloth. Second, fiberglass doors offer superb durability – they won’t warp or rot like wood doors, and they’re also resistant to dents and scratches. Third, fiberglass doors are excellent insulators – they help to keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer. Finally, fiberglass doors are extremely versatile in terms of appearance and style – they can be made to look like wood, with all the same grain patterns and colors, or they can be painted to match your home’s exterior.
Steel doors are a popular choice for exterior doors due to their superior security and weather-resistance. However, without proper care, steel doors may rust over time. The best way to prevent rust is to regularly clean and lubricate the door hinges. In addition, it’s important to avoid exposing the door to excessive moisture, as this can speed up the rusting process.
Wood doors are a classic choice for both interior and exterior doors. They offer excellent durability and can be customized to match any home décor. However, wood doors require regular maintenance to keep them looking their best. This includes polishing the wood to protect it from damage, as well as regularly checking the door for signs of wear and tear. With proper care, wood doors can last for many years and continue to add beauty and value to your home.

Common Door Repair Issues
At Trim Team, our team of staff have repaired a number of door issues. Some of these issues include:
Holes or Punctures in Doors
One way to fix a door that is slightly warped is to fill the hole with spray foam insulation. Allow the foam to rise just above the door’s flat surface and let it dry. Once the foam is dry, we remove the expanded foam from the surface just below the edge of the hole. At this juncture, we apply a vinyl spackling material with a putty knife. A light sanding of the area creates a flat spot and you can paint the door if you wish.
One of the most common door problems is paint buildup on the door jamb. This can cause the door to bind or rub, making it difficult to open and close. To fix this problem, we take a piece of cardboard and slip it into the area where the bind or rub is. Then, we mark the spot for reference. Next, we take a look at the door jamb and identify the area where the paint has built up. Finally, we use a chisel to remove the excess paint from the doorjamb. After completing these steps, your door should be in working condition again.
A Loose Door
A common problem with doors is one that makes a rattling sound when it’s opened or closed. This is usually caused by a loose stick plate, which is the metal plate located where the door latch enters the doorjamb. To fix this problem, we either tighten the stick plate or slightly adjust it to improve the door’s operation. If neither of these options work, we may recommend that you replace the stick plate with a new one.

If you have undergone recent home renovations, for example, painting, or replacing various fixtures in your home, or redoing the floors, replacing your interior doors is likewise a worthwhile project. A new door can be selected to better suit the updated style or color scheme of the room and match this new look. Replacing interior doors is beneficial for the following 5 reasons:
1. Design Consistency
2. Personalized Style and Themes
3. Energy Efficiency
4. Privacy and Security
5. Increased Home Value
On average, it should take about 5 to 6 hours to install an interior door. This time estimate includes the removal of an old door too.
A prehung door is a door that’s sold by the manufacturer as “ready-to-go.” These stock doors are sold as complete packages. They come already with hinges attached to a three-sided frame but there is a chance they may need some additional features.
Quality interior doors should last as long as the building or the house they’re in. If your interior door is a hollow option, then it has a shorter life span and needs to be replaced once every 20-30 years.
Interior doors are installed following this 6 step process:
– Step 1: Remove the Existing Door
– Step 2: Position the New Prehung Door
– Step 3: Add Shims
– Step 4: Nail Door Frame to Studs
– Step 5: Install Door Trim
– Step 6: Attach Hardware and Accessories
It’s always easier to attach the top hinge to the door first.
Yes, it is possible to install a door without a frame.
Before installing a door, an ideal gap of space should be about 1/8 inch at the top and along each side, and about 3/8 inch at the bottom. Use cardboard spacers or folded matchbooks along with shims underneath to maintain the spacing.
