What do double glazed entrance & patio doors cost?

If you take a look around, you may find that average budget double glazed uPVC door price is between £250 to £400.

Generally, there is not a lot of price difference between the cost of a back door & front door of the same design & size.

However, there are literally hundreds of different designs and also different materials to use. For a standard entrance door without side panels, it would be fair to say that a composite door would generally be at the upper end of the price range. These would have expected to be priced over £500 for supply only and closer to £1,000+ for a fully fitted door.

  • The cost of your work is likely to differ from the figures below as each project has its own pricing structure.
