    I've been getting quotes for installing bifold doors, dimensions 3m X 2.4m.

    We have patio doors so there needs to be some brickworks cut away and we need a lintel installed.

    What should I expect to pay for this building work (not including the coat and installation of the doors)? It's difficult to get people around for quotes at the minute so I thought I'd ask here. Thanks.

    The building work could cost upwards of £1500.
    The bifold supply and fit probably another £3k.

    Thanks. I've been able to get quotes for the doors and they all come in around the same price.

    Builders are so busy here right now so it's been difficult getting quotes. I got one today for £3,500 which seemed like a lot but I've nothing to compare it against

    Lol. If £3500 seems like a lot, Id give up the project if I were you.
