Garage Door with step plate and lock? $

How much more does an uninsulated steel door with step plate and lock cost than a bare (intended for opener operation) door?
The door guy brought the wrong kind (bare) and wants to install plate and lock free; on the other hand I think I ought to pay for at least what extra it would have cost if the scheduling woman had asked the right questions on the phone in the first place.
Sort of the opposite of the usual argument, as to sides.
As a fraction of the door it probably isn't much, but it's directly out of profit.
Side question, should the hole cut be rustoleumed or something? It will remove the baked-on paint to cut it, I imagine.

I think I would take this one for free. The stepplate probably just screws on and often comes in the package with a door and never installed. Same thing with the lock.

You can have a door installed with or without the lock hardware for the same price. I wouldn't pay extra for the installation of the lock and stepplate. If you want to give the installer a "tip" out of the goodness of your heart that's another story. You should touch up the door where the door was cut/drilled and screws installed. http://www.new-garage-door-parts.com/touch-up-paint.html
