Door installation and its cost

The minimum labour cost of a door installation service varies depending on the situation. If it is a solid door or hollow core door, the job should be fast and simple to perform. Do-it-yourself amateurs should not try to do this installation alone. For one thing, the size of the door must fit perfectly or else the installation won’t be successful. The sides should be planned in these cases.

If you purchase customised or specialised doors, such as bi-fold doors, the cost can be more. And if there are heavier doors that you want to use, you’ll definitely need handymen to do the heavy lifting and fitting. Then you can be sure it is done correctly without destroying anything on the inside of your house. If you want to save yourself the time and stress let an experienced handyman from Men Behaving Handy do the installation for you.

The Top 4 Factors That Influence Price

The door installer looks at numerous elements before coming up with a price estimate for a job. These elements include the following:

1) The Door Type

Doors are not all the same. There are various types of doors which have their own unique price and installation costs. For instance, a regular hinged door will be the cheapest to buy and have installed. But the price tends to get higher when you have doors which have tougher installations, such as double doors, French doors, sliding doors, and bi-fold doors.

2) Material

The most common door materials include steel, PVC/veneers, glass, and wood. Some are cheaper than others.

3) Installation Location

If you want exterior doors installed, it is going to be more expensive because these doors are much heavier and larger than the doors inside your home. Anytime you want heavier doors installed, the job will be costlier because more handymen and materials are needed.

4) Current Structure

If you have an older hinged door which is falling apart and you want to replace it with a new hinged door, then the replacement cost will be cheap if the new door is the same size as the old door. But if your new door is a different size and a different type of door, then it will cost you more money because modifications to the current area are required.

You should definitely hire a handyman to install any of your doors. It is not so simple to perform a door installation on your own, so don’t even try it. There are so many factors to consider and an amateur won’t know them all. Hire a professional door installer just to be on the safe side.
