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.

Peep hole

The peep hole is one of the most basic of security measures, but it can be essential in knowing who is at your door and protecting you from bogus callers or break-ins. The simple spyglass mechanism is fitted by drilling a hole in your door at eye height. Your tradesman will then fit a small fisheye lens, which means you can see anyone at the door but they cannot see in. These items are inexpensive to buy and they can be fitted within an hour by any skilled tradesman.

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.
