    Hi folks - I'm finding this site really useful so far so thanks to all :D

    I'll soon be moving into a house that we're refurbishing. I intend to take out all the old woodwork (skirting, architraves, frames etc) and have it all renewed. Now, can you please provide a rough idea of how much it will cost to have a single door and door frame put in based upon the following :-

    Old woodwork will have already been removed leaving just the opening
    I intend to paint the frame & architraves so MDF or softwood can be used
    Opening will be standard size and will be inside brickwork
    Architrave style will be standard - nothing bespoke
    Only the moulded door and door fittings will be supplied
    Fittings will need to be applied to door and frame
    Door is to be fitted

    I'm in the Nottingham / Derby area and there is likely to be about 8 or 9 doors / frames to be done.

    I'm just after a rough guide so that I can start some costings upfront. I dont actually know any carpenters so if anyone local(ish) would like to put thier marker in for a firmer price nearer the time then please by all means let me know.

    Thanks very much in advance.

    Up here, without seeing the job I would be looking at 4 to £500.00.

    so the chippy will have to supply all door linings and archs?
    and you will supply the doors and ironmongary?
    is this correct?
    i normally charge iro £40 a door,and thats to shoot it in and install the ironmongary,i:e butts 2no,handle and latch.
    let alone install the door lining and archs,and supply them.

    john me thinks your a bit shy here m8?
