I know these home improvement stores need to make their money I'm not trying to tackle their hustle... but really, I wanted to buy a front door with a glass oval in the middle for my home. Can anyone please tell me, is this going to be a hard job???? It just seems so simple but those simple jobs can turn into disaster. I need to know before I fork over this $330 for the door and $200 for the insulation.

Do they have to reframe,or just unscrew old door and put the new one in it's place?

That is the minimum it is worth, depending on conditions, but I wouldn't trust a big box store to do installations. They farm it out to the cheapest bidders on the block.

lot's of ways you can screw up a door install. lots of skill but looks easy when it isn't.
