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.

Solid doors

Low High
Solid doors £50 £130

The major part of the cost of replacing or installing a solid door will be determined by the materials from which your door is made. More expensive woods, such a mahogany, and decorative finishes will push up the cost. Although the cost of replacing or installing a solid door will be more or less constant, regardless of materials or finish.

In installing a solid door, your carpenter door-fitter or expert tradesman will have to ensure that the door is cut and finished to the exact right size to fit your door frame. They may have to add hinges and security extras such as locking mechanisms to the door, or the door may come with these items ready installed. There will also be details such as insulation or weatherproofing to add. Once the door is hung then the fitter will make sure that it fits well and functions properly without sticking. There may be a small amount of shaving or sanding to be done before the tradesman is happy with the job.

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.
