Setting the right budget

How much should you expect to pay?

We know it's difficult to estimate how much a project will cost, that's why we've surveyed our tradesmen to give you an idea of how much you should expect to pay for specific jobs. Tradesmen all across the country have contributed to the cost guides, so the costs you see are an approximate national average.


Low High
Doorbell £20 £40

If you are replacing an old or broken doorbell, or if you are installing a doorbell for the first time, the cost of the job will depend upon what kind of bell you want to use. Simple doorbells, whether they are battery-operated or wired into the mains, are not complex to fit and a handyman, electrician or security expert should be able to complete the job inside an hour.

The push button part of the doorbell will need to be screwed or stuck to the door or an area adjacent to the door. Some drilling may be needed for that and for any wiring that needs to come into the house and be hooked up to the mains or an internal bell or chime mechanism. Systems that make bells ring in more than one room may cost more to install, but this is a simple job that is quick to complete.
