When you are considering a new front door for your home the first question is always "How much is my new front door going to cost?"
The answer is always "it depends."
However let's look at some example budgets to help you on your journey.
It is important to note that there are many different brands and levels of fiberglass doors which come with a varying degree of price points. To learn more about the different options, brands, designs, and features available in fiberglass doors, check out some of our other education articles
Starting price for a Primed (no finish paint) Therma TruSmooth Star Flushed Glazed Shaker style door is in the range of $700- $1000 depending on factors such as the sizing, selected frame material, hinge type, and other selections or options.
Factory Finish Paint: $1300-$1550
AND.......Grids such as Simulated Divided Lite Bars: $1450-$1650
AND......Grip Entrance Hardware: $1500- $1950
AND.......Privacy Glass: $2000-$2300
AND..... when we add Sidelites on each side of the door: $3800-$4700 depending on selections

Raised Panel with Multi-Lites
A raised panel on a door refers to the lower panel of the door. It generally encompasses 1/4 to 1/3 of the total height of the door. Multi-lites refers to the grids in the glass of the door. There are several different types of grids and many different pattern options available.
In this example we are using a Provia Signet Premium Fiberglass Entry Door in a Cherry Grain. Provia doesn't offer Primed Only options in their Signet Collection so the doors will come with a factory stain or paint.
Starting price for a single lower raised panel Provia Signet multi-lite entry door. Standard width of 3ft wide by the popular height of 8ft tall. This door is factory stained with cherry graining and a 6 lite SDL (simulated divided lites) with Low E glass with argon. A Provia door that is 8ft tall comes automatically with multi-point hardware and will be in the range of $4800-$5400 depending of standard vs custom sizing and selections. It is important to note that a standard height door of 6ft 8inches will be less than an 8ft option and does not come standard with multi-point hardware.
And......when we add Sidelites: $8900-$9400
And......Privacy or Custom Glass: $9800-$10,300
What about..... a French or Double Door: $8900- $9400
And.....with Privacy or Custom Glass: $9800-$10,300
Installation by a qualified and experienced door installer is another consideration when planning for your front door budget. You can expect to pay anywhere from $750 for a single entry door replacement to $1950 for a double or french entry door replacement.
