Hello, could you please recommend where to buy a good door? I tried to search for local companies but all of them seems to have fake reviews (5stars given by new users) or no reviews at all. We are in Islington in London. Also some ideas on what to avoid/pay attention to? Thanks a lot!

What sort of door? Front door? Office door? Bank vault door?

oh sorry, it is front door.

Banham's do them, but if they are priced anything like their locks, it will be expensive! They have various showrooms dotted about London.

Have you looked up Rockdoor and any local stockists? We just got ours from a local window/door fitting company who could order it in for us.

We've got a Rockdoor and absolutely love it, went through the Rockdoor website and they referred on to the local fitters, who were excellent.

We’ve just had a new Solidor front door and love it.

Could anyone see pricing information on the rockdoor website? I will replace the back door someday and based on the recomendations here I had a look at their site, designed a door, but couldn't see anywhere how to get a cost.

duds fill out the find an installer and they will contact you to quote. It's all very simple. They will go through various upgrade options but there's no pressure at all. Have a copy of what you want ready for when they call.

Is Rockdoor something like Howdens? Do they have secret variable margins so every fitter will give me a different price?

I have no idea how Rockdoor works, only that it worked perfectly for us.

Thanks hard as nails, I had stopped at that point so will go back and continue!

duds we were referred to Value Doors but the actual installation was subcontracted to a small more local firm. It took about 5 weeks from ordering to install. The only thing that was a surprise was needing to pay over the phone while the installers waited.
