I got blown in insulation this year and replaced storm windows to improve my 1928 house's efficiency, and now after that good work I want to replace my old, drafty, wooden front door and storm door. I've hung doors before and can do it, but since I have the funds I put it out to bid. Aside from the fact that two recommended carpenters did not show up at all (after they said they would) and two others said they are so busy they couldn't get to it until Spring 2014, the other bids have, I thought, been kind of outrageous. The frame does have to be rebuilt from its current odd size (38 x 83) to the standard 36 X 80. I will do the interior work -- that is, removing the existing moulding, patching the walls and replacing it. I told the contractors I'd buy and install the lockset. Even given that, the two bids I've received have been for $2800 and $3800. I'm looking at an Andersen or Pella or Larson full view stormdoor (approx $320 in Lowes) and a standard fiberglass exterior door. The bids seem high, no?
