Factors Affecting Custom Front Door Costs

Material Selection

The choice of wood for your custom front door impacts the cost. Exotic hardwoods like mahogany and teak are more expensive than domestic woods like oak or maple. Each wood species has unique characteristics, so consider your budget and design preferences when choosing.

Door Size and Design Complexity

Your custom front door’s size and design complexity play a pivotal role in determining the cost. Elaborate designs and intricacy, custom glasswork, or custom shapes cost more than straightforward designs. Additionally, oversized doors require more materials and shipping, which increases the overall price.

Glass Inserts

Many custom front doors feature glass inserts, adding elegance and natural light to your entryway. The glass’s type, size, and decorative elements can all influence the cost. Beveled, stained, or leaded glass options are often more expensive than plain, clear glass.

In-house Glass Artisans

Doors by Decora has an in-house glass artisan team, so your entire custom front door is crafted under one roof by our experienced team.

Finish and Hardware

The finish you choose for your custom front door, such as paint or stain, can affect the cost. Almost all of our doors are stained and sealed, but painting is also an option. Premium hardware also affects your overall cost. However, these choices also impact your door’s durability and visual aesthetics, so consider them carefully.

Installation Costs

Professional installation is crucial to ensure your custom front door fits perfectly and functions as intended. Installation costs can vary depending on your location and the complexity of the installation process. We install locally and ship entryways ready for installation throughout the United States.

Typical Price Range

While the cost of custom front doors can vary widely based on the above factors, you can expect to pay anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 or more for a high-quality custom wood front door. Remember that this is a ballpark estimate; your specific project may fall outside this range.
