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.

Hinges £50 £80

If your door hinges are worn, buckled or rusty then it is often advisable to replace them, as they may not be as strong as they once were and thus may eventually fail. If a carpenter, joiner or maintenance expert decides that you need your hinges replacing then they will take your door off, remove the old hinges, tidy up the area and possibly drill new holes for the new hinges. They will then re-hang the door and make sure that it is sitting straight and securely on the hinges.

If the area around the hinges was damaged at all then they may need to repair the door frame before any fitting work can take place. If your tradesman is installing hinges for an entirely new door then they will need to measure up first and then prepare the door frame for the fringes, including chiselling out any area and drilling screws for holes as necessary. They can then hang the door and make any adjustments needed as well as any finishes or weatherproofing.
