Fully fitted front door - how much?

Just had a salesman round who quoted £2744 for a composite door. It was a fugly one, too. Can this be right?

Has anyone recently had a nice door fitted? I prefer wooden doors and would be interested to know how much a reclaimed door fitted with all the locks etc would cost as well as the standard composite doors.

That is far too much! We had new solid wood double front doors fitted recently for just under £1,000.

I was quoted £3k for a bespoke wood/pane door for an orangery. We didn't buy it. I do need new front & back doors now so watching with interest.

Ours was £1400 for a composite door with small glass pane running down the side.

@Whatsnewwithyou Thank goodness for that! Where did you get yours from?

ElizabethinherGermanGarden Fri 10-Aug-18 17:31:21

@notsomumsymum Was that including all the metalwork and the fitting? Sounds massively better. What company was that?

I’ve just been looking at composite doors online and getting prices around the 1k mark.

From the joiner who lives down the street from us. If you have a local joiner you trust maybe best to get through that route rather than a big name shop?

Yes, it was with fitting and taking the old door and window away! It was a local independent company. If you’re in Cheshire I’ll PM you the details smile

Thanks, I will check out local joiners - sadly don't know any yet but will track them down. I'm nowhere near Cheshire but thank you for the offer.

I am getting a door from We Do Doors and although I don’t have it yet I can say that they are very pleasant to deal with, pricing is clear and the process seems very straight forward.

I’ve just paid 2300 for new front and back doors

Look online at doors you're interested in, then find a carpenter to fit it.

Our Rockdoor was £1600 all in. It's lovely!

prettygreywalls Fri 10-Aug-18 21:11:45

I've just paid 1k for a new bespoke door (trade ) very modern look

Local company fit (nice) composite doors for about £800 - that includes frame - ours needed top glass too, that might have been a bit extra.

Good quality, very much like Rockdoor but I can never remember the make.

We bought this door (but from a local company) and then had a joiner fit it. He painted it for us too. Whole thing cost us about £800 including new locks and door furniture and we get loads of compliments on it.

Door companies were quoting £2.5k plus.

Glitteryfrog Fri 10-Aug-18 21:48:18

I think ours was about £1200 from the local double glazing company.
Door, frame and window above.

Was it Everest who quoted you perchance OP? They're rip off merchants. A local company will do much cheaper or buy online and fit yourself cheaper still.

chemenger Fri 10-Aug-18 21:59:59

Not Everest. I have experienced their sales tactics before.

chemenger Fri 10-Aug-18 22:00:49

Sorry, thought was my door thread! It must be door season.

Was quoted £4,200.00 for two composite doors this week Solarframe UK not a chance I will be buying them

Jenijena Fri 10-Aug-18 22:28:42

We had new windows and doors fitted. From what I remember we went for the highest of the three door options (thickness of composite), cost £1200.

buddy79 Fri 10-Aug-18 23:02:14

We were quoted about £3k for a composite from Everest - seemed a bit mad! Got local joiner to do timber door instead, was £900 incl fitting/locks/letterbox etc and we’re really pleased with it, much better value!
