Costs of Replacing a Front Door

All that you need to know about fitting a new front door including costs of materials, labour and time frames.

Front Door Replacement Cost

Your entrance door offers visitors the first impression of your house and it’s the first thing you see when you get home from work. If your entrance door isn’t working properly or it’s beginning to look shabby, then it’s time to consider replacing it.

The cost of replacing your front door is going to depend on the material used but you should expect to pay between £200-£500 for a standard door and up to £1400 to have one custom made.

If your front door is looking faded and grimy, then it may not be necessary to replace it, unless you are looking to change your home style, a fresh coat of paint can sometimes be enough to transform a wooden door, but a discoloured uPVC door can’t be painted.

If you’re having trouble opening and closing the door and/or there are large gaps between the frame and the door, then a good joiner can solve these problems, but if the door is warped; it will need changing sooner rather than later.
