Frequently Asked Questions

Can I replace an interior door myself?
It is possible but a lot of work. Replacing doors through the traditional installation process will require the homeowner to remove the door and/or the jambs. Then the homeowner will have to purchase a slab door or pre-hung door and attempt to fit it to the hole. It could take someone a few hours shaving it down and fitting it in. Then…don’t forget to paint it (all six sides).
How long will it take a contractor to replace an interior door?
It could take upwards to three hours per door. Replacing doors through the traditional installation process will require the contractor to remove the door and/or the jambs. Then the contractor will have to purchase a slab door or pre-hung door and attempt to fit it to the hole. Either method will create a mess in the homeowner’s yard/driveway or the homeowner’s actual home. Then again, don’t forget it will need painted.
Can I replace just the door slab and fit it in the opening?
Yes you can, but this is the most difficult approach. Why? Because door openings can settle and become really out of square, resulting in odd sizes. You would need to resort to using a measuring tape, instead of our exclusive digital measuring machine.
Will my new interior doors come pre-painted?
Doors that are purchased from big box stores are generally not pre-painted. Small companies that provide more custom style doors can have them come pre-painted.
Are there different style interior doors to chose from?
Yes there are many different style doors, from plain slab doors to three, four and six panel designs.
Are all doors hollow core?
No, most builders will install hollow core doors when they build a home, but there are other options available. Solid core doors are much heavier and deafen sound better.
