No matter if your building construction project is big or small, you need doors. And you need all the hardware that goes along with it- locks, handles, hinges, etc. Having a proper door schedule on hand will help you understand each opening within the building. Doing so will quantify the number of doors and materials needed.

Determining Door Hardware Cost
The cost of acquiring door hardware can range between $20 or $30 all the way up to $1,000 and more. So, as you can see, there is a huge variation in price. It all depends on the type of door used, how many doors you need, the difficulty of installation, and we cannot forget labor fees.
For example, exterior doors typically cost more than basic interior doors. And if you are installing specialty doors and added security hardware (like panic bars), the cost goes up- naturally.
For large construction projects, you can contact a commercial door hardware company to supply all the materials you need. They can provide parts at a competitive price without paying them for labor.
Labor is arguably one of the largest cost drivers.
