Doors are composed of multiple blocks, you need to place the top and bottom blocks with the appropriate metadata.
Use ItemDoor.placeDoorBlock(World world, int x, int y, int z, int facing, Block block) to place a door with the bottom block at the specified y level. This page explains the facing values (in the Bottom Sections part).
Please don't PM me to ask for help or to join your mod development team. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future. I'm not interested in developing mods with people.
