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.

Patio/French doors

Patio/French doors £50 £130

Installing or replacing patio doors or French doors can be a great way to finish your home, let the light in and make the garden feel more a part of your home. The cost of French doors and patio door systems can vary wildly, but the cost for an experienced expert to fit and finish new or replacement ones should be fairly constant.

If the doors are to fit on a track  and one is in place already then your tradesman can simply trim new patio doors and add them to it, ensuring that they slide or open properly and adding any locks or handles as needed. If they are replacing a damaged door then they should be able to find or have a close match made for you and stain or paint it to colour match as well. Experienced professionals can often come up with solutions you may not have thought of, so do always ask if they have ideas to work around such a problem.

French doors installation is usually slightly more simple, but it is always best to get an expert to do the job to ensure that they hang and open well. If you are having either of these types of doors installed anew then you will need an experienced professional to make the hole in your wall for them to fit into.

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.
