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.

Catches or locks

Low High
Catches or locks £30 £60

Adjusting or repairing catches or locks on internal doors is something that a skilled carpenter, joiner or handyman should be able to do. If the catches or locks are coming away from their fixing on a wooden internal door then they can be removed by the tradesman, the holes fixed or filled and then re-drilled. The catches or locks can then be reattached to the door.

If catches or locks have become stiff or broken then a skilled professional should be able to adjust them, repair them or lubricate the moving parts. In cases where they cannot be repaired a tradesman should be able to help you find a replacement. They may also keep some standard replacement parts with them on a job. The job should not take more than a couple of hours to complete.

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.
