    We have a single door on the side of the garage that is in need of replacement.
    The frame near the bottom is rotten from getting wet over the years.

    We never use it and I was curious as to what thoughts would be on replacing it
    or removing it all together and installing matching brick (if we can find) in its place.

    Try and get pics later today.

    It will be difficult to brick it up and have it match exactly to the existing building. Even if you have a pile of the exact same bricks the new mortar will not match the old. Besides, if the sill is rotten then you'll have to remove all the wood and put some sort of footing in before you can brick it in or the bricks will not last. It will be much easier to replace the rotten sill with pressure treated and put in a new door and frame.

    Just fix the existing frame. Home Depot or another big box building supply should carry an exact match to that frame.

    Alot of them
    I would replace the door. When you get the new one, pull the threshold and get some caulk to reseal it. They are not sealed good from the manufacturer. You don't want it to leak under the sill if you don't reseal it. I used to work at Home Depot while I was waiting for my GS position. Its amazing what you learn working there. There should be some YouTube videos to help you out if needed.

    So now its May and the door still isn't fixed. Since im not able/willing to try and fix this myself
    I called in a local company to take a look at it and give me an estimate.

    $1400.00 for new aluminum frame and 32in door with lockset and deadbolt.
    Does that sound reasonable or no?

    Still waiting on another company to get back to me with their estimate.

    Finally got a new door in. After calling a bunch (8) for estimates, only 3 responded.

    One company quoted me $1402 included their choice of lockset without even coming out to view the area.

    Another quoted me $2120.00 for the EXACT same door and did not come out and their choice of lockset.

    3rd company quoted me $677.00 plus the cost of door lockset and they sent
    out a contractor to view the garage and write up the job, that was quoted by another individual.

    I just went through a similar situation with my 'people door' to the garage. The metal skin was rusted away and the wooden jambs were all termite damaged.
    A new pre-hung fiberglass door came from Lowe's and my brother did the demo and install. It's better than new !

    I had a custom fiberglass pre-hung door installed for $1018. That included installing new brick moulding and interior trim.
