It's pretty easy. All you need is a hacksaw, drill, drill bits, phillips bits, pliers, maybe a hammer. If you can follow instructions, you can put on a storm door. Storm door instruction manuals are almost always well illustrated and are very understandable. Should be a piece of cake since you will be replacing an existing storm door. It would probably take a beginner 2 hours start to finish.

If you already had a storm door, then you're set. This means the wood for the mounting is already there and presumably the right dimenions. It's really an easy job and I just replaced mine about a month ago.
