How Much Does It Cost To Hang a Front Door?

hang a Front Door

Job 1
You want the hardwood “Grange over Sands” front door, with three little panes of glass at the top (alas, all of them “bullseye”), these come with the door. It is to have a “Yale” with a puller, a morticed deadlock, a letterbox with integral knocker, an internal chain and three good quality hinges. The joiner will give it the first coat of varnish all round before he goes. You will apply the other 2 coats yourself (yeah right)! You will be buying everything except the putty. He will collect the new door and tip the old one.

It will take him a day to do everything, but he will have to collect the door the night before and go to the tip the next day so 1.5 days.

Door £150, Furniture and varnish £100, Putty and tipping £25, Labour £225

Price: £500.00
