Hey folks I've been quoted £45 per door to have internal doors hung in Lancashire. Does this feel like good value??? How long will it take them roughly??

I was told approximately £300 supply and fit per door.

This was to include fitting new fire door, firelinings and fit all door furniture, handles, locks etc and hang

I'd say £45 is pretty reasonable to fit per door

sounds reasonable, how long will depend on how many and what they are made from! harder wood will take longer than soft to work. a rough guide, I reckon I had 13 doors 50/50 oak and cheap cardboard done in about 3 to 3.5 days rough cost 350 quid but that was a family friend

Its to hang internal doors that are part wood part glazed - pretty standard stuff I think.

There's "Hanging" doors then there's "Fitting" doors, two very different things with the same end result.

that depends on how much smoke the person it trying to blow up the customers backside and possibly costing 90 quid a door.

If that includes the actual door you will have **** doors, if it doesn't your contractor is mocking you.

I am an idiot and I hung doors, fitted architrave etc from watching a Wickes 'how to' video so if I were you I would save the money and spend it on wine.

My Jesus (carpenter and distributor of fine wines) was impressed by my novice handywork, and when I had a splinter and became bored it took him less than 10 mins to fit a door upstairs so I would say £45 is a tad steep unless your contractor is sticking an envelope containing £30 on each finished door.

If they do a good job and you are happy with it then it seems ok. If you have quite a few doors to do maybe ask for a day rate instead.

I would say £45 a door is about right, especially new doors old linings, some can be a real pig. Alternatively you could go and spend £240 on a planer about the same on circular saw about £80 n a decent set if chisels another £250 on e decent drill £40 on drill bits then watch a video and do it yourself.

I am not ranting but this the type of toolery a proffesional chippy will bring to your job along with years of experience.

No it doesn't, it depends on whether the door lining is straight, square, in twist and the legs parallel ie. just hanging a door
Or whether the door casing is all over the place and absolutely sha**ed, in which case getting that 2 pence gap all round is bloody hard work!
