    Replacement Internal Oak Veneer Doors

    Replacement Internal Oak Veneer Doors 18th Apr 17 at 6:58 PM
    I've had a quotation from a local tradesman to supply and fit 11 new doors. The cost for the oak veneer doors, including one sliding door and track, door furniture, 2 x locks, fittings and door oil totals £2347.

    I would like to ascertain whether this is a fair quote. I would like this very pleasant local man to do the work. However, I need to double-check.

    Thank you.

    Why not get a couple more quotes in to see, how much do the doors themselves cost?

    If they are finishing them as well, its probably o the money. Oak Veneer doors can be £150 each so the quote is fair. But get other quotes!!


    And remember, for a job like this, a lower price is not always the best way forward.
