New front door without damaging internal flooring by replacing internal door frame?

We live in a mid terrace which opens into the living room from front door. We have recently laid down LVT which runs all the way up to the internal door frame. We would like to replace the front door, ideally with a Composite door. I assume this would involve the internal door frame being replaced - would this damage the new LVT we've just laid or could it be done with minimal/no damage? We would also consider a new uPVC door as well if this would further reduce the chance of damage? Advice would be appreciated - thanks.

Hi you should be able to change the frame with no damage to your Newley laid flooring. And the new frame will just go back up to the flooring

If the correct care is taken, and the dimensions of the uPVC/Composite door dont incroach on the flooring, you should have no issues. The flooring can also be cut to suit and covered with appropriate finishings that suit the door type to leave a tidy and professional finish.
