You should be able to find the definitive answer in your Proprietary Lease. There are sections in the PL that define who (shareholder or co-op corp) is responsible for what.

If your's is a standard PL, then you are most likely responsible. Most PL's state that the shareholder is responsible for everything (doors included) that are contained within the envelope of the unit; the four walls that frame the unit, the base floor, and the ceiling. The shareholder is usually responsible for any special wall treatments (wallpaper, wainscotting, etc) and floor treatments (parqueting, carpeting, etc), because the co-op corporation cannot be held responsible for anything that was not part of the original unit.
