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.

Sliding doors

Low High
Sliding doors £220 £400

A lot of the work needed to fit sliding doors is in preparation work, installing tracks and runners so that the doors can operate smoothly and continue to do so for years to come. Do allow time for this in your budget, as this will make up a good deal of the labour cost for the job.

If your tradesman is simply replacing existing doors then they should be able to fit on existing tracks, so all they will need is cutting to size and any other adjustment made before fitting can take place. The cost of the doors and any extras, such as new track or locks, will determine the final cost of the job. Your tradesman should make sure that everything works to your satisfaction before adding any finishing touches and tidying up after the installation.

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.
