Prices for Basic Interior Panel Doors
In general, you can expect to spend between $70 to $400 on basic interior panel doors. That’s a pretty big margin, however, so let’s break it down to get a more specific price. First of all, interior panel doors themselves (not including labor, bells and whistles, or other add-ons) are generally relatively cheap, ranging from $30 to $100 per door, with most doors falling between $50 and $100. Interior panel doors in this price range are generally basic, hollow-core models, which means that they are not made from solid wood. However, be aware that the installation of these doors can cost $50 to $300, depending on the labor costs and the type of hardware installed. Pre-hung interior panel doors generally cost about $100 if they have a hollow core.
Prices for Intricate Interior Panel Doors
For more elaborate interior panel doors, you can expect to pay extra per door. Basic solid wood doors often fall between $200 and $300, as it costs more to make a door out of solid wood than it does to use a hollow core. If you’re using the most expensive wood species, or if you’re buying speciality custom doors, the price could be $500 to $1,000. A good basic price to remember is that solid core, pre-hung interior panel doors are likely to cost about $150 to $200.
Prices for Material and Hardware
Interior panel doors won’t do you any good without hardware, so it’s important to estimate those prices as well. Every door needs a door knob, for instance, and you can expect to spend $10 to $100 for a knob, depending on the quality and material used. Keyed levers, however, can cost as much as $150. Door hinges are also necessary component, and luckily they’re cheap, with the vast majority of hinges costing between $10 and $30. Stains, paints, and other finishes generally have a wide range of prices, but you can assume that most stains will cost between $10 and $20, while most paints will cost $10 to $50.
Prices for Maintenance and Repairs
Any door requires maintenance and repairs, and interior panel doors are no exception. Interior doors take much less of a beating than exterior doors and so, more often than not, the only maintenance or repair you’ll need to worry about will be replacing hinges or knobs, or applying a fresh coat of finish. These repairs are cheap, costing about $10 to $50. However, perhaps your wood interior panel door has begun to rot, or maybe the surface is dented or scratched. In these cases, some more extensive repairs might be required, so it’s helpful to remember that the average cost of repairing an interior wood door is about $150.
Bottom Line: A Cheap and Cost-Effective Investment
While some interior panel doors can be expensive, expect to spend about $200 to $300 for most models. As such, interior panel doors are a cheap and often classy investment for your home.
