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
Handles £30 £60

Replacing door handles on internal doors is a very straightforward job for a carpenter, joiner or handyman. Handles can usually just be switched like for like, although new holes may need to be drilled for the plates that house the handles if they are a different design from your current ones. If this is the case then your tradesman may also have to fill any screw holes that are exposed and paint the door to create a good finish.

The complete cost of the job will depend largely on the type of handles that you use, with standard DIY superstore models coming in at a lot less than handmade, period or brass handles.

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.
