dt,

When I was in college, in the summers, I worked for a general contractor. When we did a job like this, the quote varied based on
how fancy or plain the door was.

So if your door cost about 600.00, then the charge was 600.00

Why?

If I make a mistake and damage your door I have to replace it and do the work for free.

A $600 door required a $600 install fee.
