    Hi Guys.

    Can anyone suggest a way to repair this to a good standard. Im in a private rented house. As far as i know contents insurance wont cover this. Is there an easy way to repair it. Many thanks.

    It was not me who did the damage but im told i am liable for it.

    You can take the bead off the door and insert a new door panel. Try a local PVC window company for prices. Repairing is a no goer.

    As above , can't be repaired .

    You can disguise it by placing something over it such as a door number for example

    Or replace it

    Who damaged it btw you might not be liable and who told you , you was?

    Ok many thanks for your reply. The letting company have took a picture as well and are asking their supplier what they think, i will obviously get my own quote if it can be repaired. Do you have any idea what this might costs, its a very cheap and basic front door with no Glass panels.


    Many thanks for your reply. I have the issues that the landlord might not agree to a patch up repair and covering it, which is understandable. The letting agent is asking the landlord if he would claim off of his insurance and i would pay the excess.

    The police were at the front door, my girlfriend was refusing to answer the door to them, the police got a bit heavy handed with their banging. I complained to the police, they got back to me and said they found nothing on their body cam footage to suggest it was them. So im stuck with the bill.

    I'll be amazed if they can do an invisible repair to a weathered (and rust bled) door and less than the cost of a new door too

    Don't you know a mate who is handy with the tools?

    thanks for your reply, i am very handy when i can be bothered lol, i dont know whats involved in replacing the full door skin. I have not yet had a quote back from the repair company but im a bit sceptical myself, it would of course need the approval of the landlord before proceeding as im not going to waste my money if he wont be satisfied.

    I'm sure if you went to a local company in your area that makes UPVC windows and doors, you will be able to buy the panel. If you ask them about fitting, I'm sure they would give you a price.

    It's a case of prising the beads off the boor/panel edge. Do one of the uprights first. You will then need to hand saw the new panel to size, sit it in and refit the beads.

    Thanks for the reply. I found a video of a door panel replacement, it look like something I could do with a bit of patience providing I get the panel cut to the right size.

    I'm going to have to do something as the letting agent has said the landlord is not keen on doing it through his insurance, I'm not surprised to say the least.

    I guess it's worth getting a price from an online supplier as well as a local supplier.

    Many thanks for all your help and guidance.
