    If I was pricing, I would say normal internal door price plus 1 hour if frame needs rebating.HTH

    thanks busy builder. but i know some who fit internals for £30 so wouldn be worth doing fire door for that. wouldnt you want more for extra hinge, extra weight of door causing more effort and routin intrumescent strip.??

    standard fire door doesn't really take much longer, I work on the basis of £25 a hour therefore £50, these are yorkshire prices, I'd charge more but we do seem to have an excess of incap glassbacks working cash in hand as long as you can lend them a hammer and screwdriver.

    Most recent story was a house refurb, tiler turned up to fit marble floor tiles with B&Q's finist £30 plasplugs cutter

    one more thing gonzo. if you route the doors for strip then not needed on frame as well though is it??
    door or frame i thought. how would you route all of a fitted frame??

    I route as much as I can mark the last bit with a knife then us a chisel for the last few bits

    biscuit jointer is quite handy too.

    I always put it in the frame/lining/casing as it takes less abuse than the door

    easier in the door though i think in it. if ive got to qoute cheap though im routing the doors.
    ive got to confess im inexperianced with fire doors and have downloaded all the regs but would want to make sure i get them right. not wrong though is it to route doors instead of frame is it??

    'Supply and fit flush ply fire door door - £400.00 + VAT'

    That's from my friend's quote - quote accepted.

    Rates are still £90 in some area, reduce for quantity to about £60 taking into consideration current climate.

    Why is everybody so keen to lower their prices?? Unless you feel like you were overcharging before,,, I'd keep the prices the same (as I have done,,, in some cases actually increased)... most other jobs have people striking for pay increases etc and you lot are trying to charge less... My costs have spiraled with virtually everything costing more... one thing has'nt changed if I'm reasonable with customers on price and finish, they're willing to pay.

    £100 per fire door labour only and I'd only fit strip in lining if it was a new liner and thats only fpor aesthetics... there should be little strain on the strip because it should only be in contact with the frame in event of fire heat making it swell!

    thanks rk. good point about not putting prices down but sometimes other people doing it dictates to you following suit or get no work. you answered my strip in frame or door question so thanks again.

    Fire door £90, bathroom mortice +£10 if door needs intumescent +£15 if old door needs disposing +£10
    Normal internal doors £50 bathroom mortice +£10 old door disposing +£10
    I was charging These prices for fitting over 20 years ago. The only difference is I now make sure I charge for disposing of old doors/ linings bathroom locks, £30 a door is way of the mark in my eyes,£240 for an average 8 doors in a house will be 2 days for a man and apprentice not worth getting out of bed for, £50 a door gives you £400 plus any disposing/ lock extras
    Ps, fire doors are more work to fit because they are heavy,when you have to offer them up multiple times is a door lining that's on the **** or take them up and down the stairs because the customer is worried about a bit of dust you will wish you had charged more!
