What affects door prices & installation costs?


Of all the things that can raise or lower overall pricing, these are the 3 that we find are the most common and obvious.

cost guide 1Door & opening Size

This will literally have a measurable impact on the price of the project. Bigger doors usually mean bigger prices. The more panels needed, the more work to install them. Thereby increasing labour cost. For very wide or high openings, you could be looking at requiring a bespoke set of doors.

cost guide 2Existing Structure

Do you have a “ready-made” opening for the new door, are you creating a new opening in a solid wall? Because the labour involved in preparation & making good afterwards make a difference to the final cost. You could always use one contractor to do the “prep-work” and another to supply & fit the doors.

Notes About Door Size:

A standard door height in the UK is around 6 feet 6 inches (1.98 metes), so anything over 7 feet high (2.2 metres) may be considered “bespoke”.

A 2 panel small bifold door could start from approx 8 feet (2.5 metres), with large 6 panel units getting as wide as 15 to 16 feet (4.5 metres).

It may seem an obvious point, but the choice of material & design features are clearly going to have a direct impact on the final cost.

For example, UPVC, Timber and Aluminium will have different price structures. you should also bear in mind that for each of these products if you want to have a coloured version then there will be an additional cost.

You also have choice between the type & quality of glazing. You can have Double or Triple glazed panels, options for “low-e” or tinted glass which can be either tempered or even laminated.

You will also get a price variation in door furniture.Items such as locks and handles come in different designs, degree of quality and therefore different price points.

Low or rebated thresholds are very popular options. However, take care to ensure the low level threshold being used has been fully tested and is properly weather proof – the last thing you want is water & wind coming into your home form under the doors.

Bottom hung doors run on an underfoot track that support the weight of the door and the overhead track is just a guide.
