    Replacing glazing and handle in upvc door

    As I said, I would prefer a hardwood door. How much would I be looking at to replace both the door and the door frame with hardwood versions? Much more than £500? Ta _____________________________________ lynda, moderator please note forum rule 9

    Replacing glazing and handle in upvc door

    Thanks glassman I'd love to replace it with a hardwood door. The reason I think £500 is a lot is because I don't even like upvc! I'd be paying £500 to replace a horrible door with an OK one, hence the refurbishment idea. However, there's a upvc frame as well so I presumed that it would...

    Sorry if I got the terminology wrong... I've almost completed the renovation of my house, but the staircase banister still looks ugly.

    Fitting acrylic bath panel

    Hi, new to this site Have been left in the lurch by a disappearing joiner, and I would like to try to fit our white acrylic bath panel myself. I'm comfortable making the frame to attach it to etc, but the panel doesn't actually fit in place (due to tiling on the floor) and so needs trimming...
