2021 Notice: Material & Labor Prices are Surging

Demand for windows has grown over the past year. And, as a result, manufacturers are increasing materials prices. Prices have gone up 5% to 10% this year, and many parts of the country are experiencing long delivery times. If you're planning a window installation or replacement project, we recommend starting as early as possible in the season, preparing for potential price fluctuations, and allowing extra time to order materials.

New or Replacement Window and Door Prices

The cost of materials for your window or door range from $40 to $2,000 or more. Steel or aluminum cost more than PVC or composite wood options. A window or door professional can give you an estimate unique to your project.

Steel Windows and Doors Cost

A steel door costs from $500 to $1,250 on average to install or replace. Doors can cost much more depending on the size and style, with some as high as $5,000. Steel window frames are generally much more expensive than aluminum or wood options. You can find a steel window kit for $100 or more per frame, before the cost of glass or installation.

Aluminum Window and Door Prices

Aluminum window project costs range from $400 to $1,200 or more on average. Aluminum doors cost $100 to $2,000. A sliding-style door will raise the price.

PVC Doors and Windows

Vinyl is the most affordable window material and costs $250 to $600 on average. An interior door made of PVC runs from $200 to $500, though custom models may cost more.

Wood

The cost of a wood window frame runs from $200 to $2,000, though custom frames can cost more. Wood frames require more upkeep than vinyl or steel. A wooden door can cost as much as $6,000 for an exterior model with sidelights.

Composite Wood

Composite windows cost from $300 to $1,100 for an installed frame. Doors run from $40 to $500 on average.

Window Costs by Type

A single window runs from $100 to $1,300 for standard sizes and materials. However, costs vary greatly depending on the type of window, the material of the frame and the glass used. Here are a few common styles and their costs:

Window TypeAverage Cost
Standard$100-$1,300
Casement$300-$1,000
Bay$600-$2,500
Egress$450-$1,600

Talk to a window installer to get the most accurate pricing information for your project.

Doors Costs by Type

The average cost to install a door runs from $500 to $1,500. Entryway doors are typically the most expensive, while interior doors are cheaper. Find out more about door costs by type below.

Interior Doors

You’ll pay $750 on average to install a standard interior door. Pocket doors cost $1,000 to $3,500. A barn door style costs from $300 to $1,000. It may be time to replace your interior doors if you notice that:

  • The jambs are damaged or unaligned.

  • The door has holes, warping or cracks.

  • Your current style looks out-of-date.

Hollow-core doors are less expensive than solid options, so be sure to ask your pro which type works best in your home.

Exterior Doors

Exterior doors cost $1,100 on average to install. However, more specialized doors with custom designs and high-end materials can cost as much as $20,000. These doors should be able to withstand:

  • High winds

  • Harsh temperatures

  • Weather events

  • Intruders

Additionally, doors that lead to a garage must be fire-coded.

Some homeowners choose to pay the cost to install storm doors, which offer added protection for your main entry door. Storm doors run from $200 to $600 on average.

The cost to install a security door ranges from $600 to $4,600. These styles also protect against intruders.

Sliding glass or patio doors cost $2,000 on average to install. However, large sizes with extra features and customization can run up to $7,000.

Convert Window to Sliding Glass Door

A sliding glass door costs from $1,000 to $5,000 to install depending on the number of panels. Converting a window to a sliding glass door will cost slightly more since your pro will need to dispose of old materials.

Turn Window into French Door

Expect to pay from $600 to $5,800 to convert a window to a French door. The window dimensions, style and material will play a role in the total.

Door-to-Window Conversion Cost

The average cost to repair a door is around $230. You may need to call a pro if you notice your door:

  • Sticking and swelling

  • Sagging

  • Causing drafts

A window repair job costs $350 on average. Hire a pro for a repair project if you notice:

  • Broken glass

  • Cracked frames

  • Fogging

If your door or window suffered serious damage, is old and out-of-date or has structural issues, your pro may recommend getting a replacement.
