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.

Locks £30 £60

Replacing the locks on interior doors is a quick and easy task that a professional tradesman will be able to complete in next to no time. They will simply remove the old mechanism, taking the door from its hinges if necessary, before replacing it with a similar lock. If you are changing the style of lock, or you have a non-standard model, then your carpenter or joiner may have to add a new hole for the lock or screw holes to attach the mechanism.

Lock types and prices do vary, but this should be an inexpensive job in terms of labour from your tradesman.

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.
