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.

Replacing old door handles or fitting new ones on external doors will brighten up the look of the door and can also improve the security of your home. Replacing old door handles means removing the old ones before tidying up the area where they were installed, before fitting a new handle and making good any paintwork or staining that needs to be worked on to match the rest of the door.

If your tradesman is fitting handles on a new door they will need to drill out holes for the handle, the screws to hold it in place and any locking mechanism it attaches to. They will then tidy up the area around the handle or any areas they have had to drill out for the fitting.

Rated People surveyed 83 of our carpenters and joiners across the country to give you an idea of the approximate costs for a range of work on external doors. We also asked about internal doors.
