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.

Keep reading to learn how to estimate the cost of door hardware, metal doors, and the like.

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.

Check These Door Factors

Keep these qualitative factors in mind when estimating your project.

  • Material
  • Gauge
  • Style
  • Commercial grade rating
  • Fire grade rating
  • Hallow metal or wood door
  • Sizing

It’s important to keep costs low, so you don't break your bottom line. But it's more important to understand what you want the finished result to look like, the grading of the door hardware, and the overall quality of materials used.

How Much Does Door Installation Cost?

After you’ve secured the parts for your construction project and chosen your material supplier, it’s time to estimate how much the door installation will cost. This is the labor portion.

Refer back to the door schedule and/or the quantified list of all door components. For a small project- we’re talking very few doors- labor pricing can range between $150 to $300 and beyond.

For large construction projects, the cost to install door hardware ranges from $500 to $2,000 and well beyond.
