Nothing to do with relocating

I was wondering if anyone here can recommend somebody or a company that does replacement entry doors??
I live in delaware county, aldan and having a not so good time trying to find a reasonably priced and quality work in getting a new steel front door for my house......I need the door replaced, not a prehung type door......anyways, does anyone know of anybody that does good quality work and knows about door replacing and all that goes with it? without costing a small fortune? please let me know

thanks so much

Whomever recommends someone here is still a stranger to you. Better go with Home Depot or Lowes and their installers. I'd feel a lot more comfortable, and safe.

I can recommend a company in southern Chester County, practically at the Delaware/PA line: A&A Lumber. We bought a custom wood door from them, and could not have been more pleased.

But that's pretty far from Aldan. Have you thought about joining Angie's List to look for contractors? I joined but there wasn't really enough data for our part of Chester County. I think you might have better luck since you're so much closer to Philly. I think there's a trial period.

i am an angies list member......my membership expired a month ago, dont use it that often.....lowes and home depot have prehung doors... not replacement doors alone......my H is going to take it all apart and rebuild the frame to be able to buy a prehung.....he doesnt want to have to spend 6,7,800 bucs when he feels he can do it himself, just thought if price was right, somebody else can do it.....thanks

Pre-hung is much better, especially for a steel door. Fitting just the door can be a royal pain.
