    The two main types of fir used for woodworking are Douglas fir and hem-fir. While both types are popular for construction, Douglas fir is more widely used for exterior doors. Fir is an easy material to stain, making it an ideal choice for exterior doors. Additionally, the material is very resistant to wear, making it a great long-term option for homeowners. A fir entry door will generally have a vertical grain, although certain doors come in a 'plain saw' variation. Read on to learn more about the prices for a fir entry door. 

    General Prices For A Fir Door

    Fir is a readily available type of wood, making it fairly inexpensive. A fir door generally starts around $150 to $300. However, higher-end fir entry doors can cost $800 and up. Installation fees are generally $150 to $300.

    A complete fir door system, including the prehung door in its frame, hinges, locksets, sidelights, and weatherstripping, will generally cost anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000. 

    Added Features for Fir Doors

    In order to find or design their perfect fir entry door, many homeowners work closely with their contractor. Additional hardware such as a lock, knob, and knocker generally cost anywhere from $300 to $400. 

    It is very common to add window panels, or sidelights, to each side of a front entry door. It is also possible to add a transom – window panels above your door. These glass additions can add $600 to $3,000 to your fir door price.

    Many homeowners decide to stain their fir entry door, as this treatment can bring out the wood's beautiful grain. If the homeowner decides to stain the fir entry door on their own, the cost of staining materials is around $40 to $60. However, if labor costs are needed in order to stain the fir door, homeowners should budget for $100 to $250. 

    Energy Efficiency and Tax Credits

    Fir entry doors tend to be less energy efficient. The R-value of fir entry doors falls anywhere between R-1 to R-2. However, additional insulation can raise that number to R-5 and higher. An insulation core will add around $100 to $400 to your fir door price.

    Sustainably Sourced Fir Door

    Despite the fact that fir is an abundantly growing wood, sustainably sourced fir entry doors are available thanks to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). FSC-certified wood does raise your overall fir door price, and these prices will vary based on your manufacturer. 

    Summary: A Solid Price for a Solid Door

    When considering materials for your home's exterior door, fir is a strong, inexpensive choice. Fir doors are durable and easy to customize, making them a fantastic option. To begin the search for your fir entry door, use HomeAdvancement's easy links.
