The major part of the cost of replacing or installing a solid door will be determined by the materials from which your door is made. More expensive woods, such a mahogany, and decorative finishes will push up the cost. Although the cost of replacing or installing a solid door will be more or less constant, regardless of materials or finish.
In installing a solid door, your carpenter door-fitter or expert tradesman will have to ensure that the door is cut and finished to the exact right size to fit your door frame. They may have to add hinges and security extras such as locking mechanisms to the door, or the door may come with these items ready installed. There will also be details such as insulation or weatherproofing to add. Once the door is hung then the fitter will make sure that it fits well and functions properly without sticking. There may be a small amount of shaving or sanding to be done before the tradesman is happy with the job.
