A door is used all day long. Over time, it may also happen that the door frame needs to be replaced. How much does it cost to replace a door frame and which factors influence the cost when you replace a door frame? You will find out in this article.
There is no general price for the replacement of a single frame. That's because the price you follow here is determined by several factors. How big is your door frame, what material does your door frame consist of, what brand is your door frame, etc.? All of these influence the total price. We can give a few guide prices for a door frame to be replaced.

More and more people choose a plastic door frame. This is not surprising when you consider the advantages of a doorframe in this material: plastic lasts a very long time, is virtually maintenance-free and is also the cheapest material. Less positive about a plastic doorframe is that you cannot paint it nicely and that repairs are very difficult. For a plastic doorframe for your inner door, you pay between €50 and €150 on average.
Do you like the authentic, warm look of wood? Then go for a wooden doorframe. Tired of the colour of your wooden doorframe after a few years? A lick of paint over it and you instantly have a completely new doorframe! Another advantage of wood is that it is easy to repair in case of damage. A disadvantage of wood is that it can rot and requires relatively high maintenance. On average, you will pay between €100 and €180 for a wooden door frame.
If you like luxury in a modern look, choose a steel door frame. Steel is fire- and burglary-resistant, maintenance-friendly and immediately gives your home a modern look. However, steel can rust. On average, you will pay between € 120 and € 200 for a steel door frame in your inner door.
