Answers to Common Questions About AZ Replacement Doors:
DunRite brands include Andersen, Heritage, Pella, Milgard, Anlin, Woodgrain, Thermatru and Masonite, and we install all of their exterior door products for the front or back of your home.
Ready to transform double front doors into a single entry door with sidelights, or have a glass moving wall system installed to open up the back of your home? Sure, we’ll do that. We can also change sliding glass doors to hinged French doors or a replacement sliding glass door that looks like a French door, even change out an old aluminum slider for energy-efficient fiberglass or vinyl sliding doors. Patios are important to Arizona homeowners, and we enjoy giving them a better view or greater access to their backyard.
We’re also committed to a five-star experience, so while we’re replacing the door, we’ll keep the job site clean, and be careful to preserve landscaping as we come and go. It’s a hassle-free experience and, naturally, you’ll receive our lifetime installation guarantee for as long as you own the home.
Absolutely! We have a minimum purchase requirement of at least three exterior items (windows and/or doors), so we wouldn’t come out to replace just the interior door(s). However, replacing interior doors while we’re already there to replace windows is a common task for us! Whether you want to update the look, replace damaged doors, or add doors where they didn’t exist before, we do the job quickly with close attention to detail.
We’ll remove the old door and frame, replace it with the product and hardware you’ve selected, then add any trim needed. If drywall repair is expected, it’s typically included in the price estimate, but this tends to be unnecessary for most interior door replacements.
DunRite does not paint, so any finishing of the door and trim is up to the homeowner.
Because of our three-exterior-item minimum, we don’t replace single doors. We can replace a mixture of product, however, such as windows plus an entry door, or a patio, entry and garage door – plus the interior doors along with those three items.
We also do not replace glass on entry doors, or do other types of repair. For that, your best bet is to contact a glass repair company or handyman.
If you’re obtaining quotes from window and door companies to replace your door, there’s no need to take measurements. They’ll take care of that, along with assuming responsibility if the measurements should be incorrect for some reason. However, if you plan to replace the door yourself, here are a few tips from professionals, and the process is the same for both an interior or exterior door. Similar to how windows are measured, we recommend taking three or four measurements of the door height and width, and also from the door frame width. Take the smallest measurement, and subtract 12/3/8 of an inch from both the height and width to allow a bit of room for adjustments, then write it down. After all, the trim around the door on the inside and outside of the jamb will cover that gap.
You can order the door pre-drilled for the handle, so there’s no need to measure that. However, you do want to take note of whether the door swings inward or outward, and measure the depth of the door frame and the door itself. You also want to check and see if the frame opening is square and true. Using a level both horizontally and vertically will tell you if the opening is straight, and using a right angle at each corner will tell you if it’s 90 degrees. If it’s not, discuss this with the sales staff where you are ordering the door from. They’ll have advice on how best to handle the situation.
If you’re measuring for a sliding glass door replacement, or sliding closet doors, only measure the opening. There’s no need to measure the glass panels. You’ll also want to check if it’s square and plumb.

If you’re more of the DIY type, Home Depot provides an excellent tutorial on how to replace an exterior door, and the Lowe’s video below is excellent, too. Since the door and frame can be quite heavy and difficult to handle, especially front doors. Having two people manage the job is important, and you’ll want to allow a full day for the project if it’s something you haven’t done before.
Sliding glass doors are a two-man (or woman!) job, and not something anyone should tackle by themselves. These doors are double-pane and extremely heavy. We recommend using a professional if you’ve never done it before; if your construction or carpentry skills are not intermediate to advanced; if the doors are not a standard size (such as ceiling height, bifold/multifold, or extra large); if there is damage to the opening such as dry rot, water damage or insect damage; or if you think you need assistance with creating an insulated, water-tight seal around the new door.
All of that being said, if you think you have the strength and skills to replace a sliding glass door, this “How to Install a Sliding Door” article from Home Depot might help.
There are many different brands of exterior doors, along with styles, options and upgrades, so we tell you online how much it costs to replace a door. Plus, pricing changes fairly regularly, especially in today’s economy. Instead of trusting a generic price range, it’s better to get quotes from reputable window and door companies, since they’ll provide you information about what best suits your design style and budget. Are you looking for a patio door, and thinking about replacing a less secure glass sliding door with French doors? Or enlarging the opening to fit ceiling-height sliders? Do you want a new front door, but you aren’t sure about how much glass, and whether it’s worth spending more on Fiberglass or if steel or aluminum is fine? Should you consider wood? All of these questions can be talked through with a salesperson, so that you have enough information and pricing to make an educated decision on what you’d like to do.
You can find inexpensive builder grade exterior doors at a home improvement store, or custom colors and design from a windows and doors company or high-end showroom, along with plenty of choices in the middle, but you’ll need to meet with them to get actual pricing.
Please understand generic pricing found on a website or article is highly likely to be outdated and inaccurate, especially given the impact of shipping, labor and supply chain issues that are impacting the entire industry.
Stop by a home improvement store for a quote from their window and doors department if you’d like to do the installation yourself or hire a handyman for just one door. If you’d like something a step up or more customized than that, or if you have a bigger project or multiple doors you’d like replaced, then reach out to a local window and doors company. Just don’t forget to get multiple quotes if you’re just thinking about one brand, especially if it’s high-end. There are great exterior door products being sold and installed in our market that offer excellent quality, long warranties and a more affordable price tag. We’d be happy to quote both.
While we can’t quote product and labor pricing online to provide a specific cost to replace a sliding glass door, we’d be happy to come out to your home to discuss style preferences and budget, then give you a price estimate. We install sliding glass doors in aluminum, fiberglass, aluminum-clad wood and vinyl material choices, along with upgrades like mini-blinds between the panes, pet doors, improved energy efficiency and more. We also can enlarge openings, install multi-fold or extra large sliding glass doors, create glass walls and more. Contact us today to schedule your appointment to replace a sliding glass door.
The most cost effective place to buy replacement interior doors is a local home improvement store. Most window and door companies don’t install them, but a handyman service can do the job, or you can ask the home improvement store if they offer installation services.
They typically sell doors with or without primer, and with or without the frame (pre-hung versus a slab door).
If you are already working with a window and door company to replace windows or exterior front doors on your home, you might ask if they will do interior doors, too, since some will handle interior doors as an add-on. However, most window and door companies do not install interior doors or closet doors.
It’s a fast, simple job and a great entry-level DIY project. You can purchase doors that have primer already applied, and either use the existing hardware on your current doors, or pick up new hardware at Home Depot or Lowe’s when you pick up your doors. Here is a helpful video from Lowe’s on how to replace interior doors, along with their buying guide.
Here’s What Our Customers Say…
The installers were efficient and cleaned everything up nicely. Our salesman, Sal, was awesome. He was very accommodating. He answered some questions for me about other windows and doors in my house. He offered my advice on some screen installation. He actually recommended a different type of company to complete the work I wanted done. (just like the movie Miracle on 34th Street). We were not happy with one of the choices we made with the door installation. We thought we would like our choice of framework but did not like the selection once it was up. Even though it was DunRite’s fault, they exchanged the section we were not happy with and did not charge us extra money for their time or the new materials.
I would highly recommend the company.
