    I have just bought a hardwood front door which has 2 glass panels and 2 wooden panels. How much should I be paying a joiner to have it fitted with my existing yale lock, mortice lock, letter box and 2 bolts and a new thing on the bottom to keep the rain out?

    I live on Liverpool.

    Thank you in advance.

    HI, anything from £70 - £130. depends realy there's quite a lot of variation from place to place, as well as familiarity with the tradesman, do you know someone or picking one out of the yellow pages. by that i mean if you know the chap you might get a decent rate for return custom.

    Lucy, be VERY VERY careful of the small ads, the prices may sound cheap, but dont be swayed. Youve paid for a nice new door, a poor fit will ruin it.

    Like DD said beware of the small ads they might say £100 to hang a front door but every else will come as extras,anyway it normally a days work .So exspect to pay a days money £150 would not seem too unreasonable to me.But as 1 poster has already written rates vary regionally

    on the subject of price a good joiner/ locksmith will have it in within 3-4 hours so £25 a hour £100 sounds fair (for northern monkey prices)

    p.s thats not a insult I'm a northern monkey 2
