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.


Low High
Catches £30 £60

Older or period doors often have catches rather than standard handles or locks, but these can be easily replaced by a carpenter, joiner or handyman. Sourcing replacement handles may be the most difficult part of the job, as well as the most expensive part. Your tradesman will be more than happy to fit replacement catches that you have found, making any adjustments to your door or the fittings as necessary.

If the screw holes vary from the current ones then new holes may have to be drilled before fitting the new catches. The tradesman will also fill any unused old screw holes or strengthen current screw holes if needed.

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 internal doors. We also asked about external doors.
