Door Fitting Service in the Central London area

And some postcodes on the outskirts

PLEASE NOTE: OUR CURRENT TURNAROUND TIME FOR ANY FITTING JOB IS A MINIMUM OF 4 to 8 WEEKS.

PLEASE CALL US TO CLARIFY WHEN WE CAN INSTALL AT YOUR PROPERTY.

We offer a door fitting service for any of the doors that we supply in the Central London area and in some outlying postcodes. Please see the price list on this page. These prices are for the labour costs only and do not include the door, furniture or finishing costs. Please ask us for any information about our fitting services or if you require a more in-depth explanation about how the service works.

Generally we will only fit any door supplied by us, which includes any internal, fire or external door as well as bespoke steel doors and frames. We also fit bespoke wooden doors and frames that we make as well. We fit new frames, any door furniture and locks or latches into the door as part of the service. The fitting fees for any unusual items, like Banham locks, are listed on the bottom of this page. The fees do not include the cost of the doors or the door furniture.

Fitting is normally carried out during Monday to Friday working hours, just ask us for more information.

Our carpenters / fitters are our sub-contractors, whom we recommend and employ on your behalf. They will need to carry out an initial site survey – carried out before you buy the doors from us – and this is arranged over the phone by our Sales team. Please email or call us to arrange a survey at your property. The rates for carrying out onsite surveys are shown in the list on this page as well. If you go ahead with a fitting job from us the survey fee will be refunded.

So that you know whether we are able to, and can carry out a fitting service at your property, there are a number of items we need to know first, as follows:

  • Is there ample parking or can parking permits be provided for the measure and fitting dates? We can source these on your behalf at cost. There needs to be parking available right outside the property to allow the fitters to park their vans and have access to their tools during the fitting days.
  • Is there good enough access to the site/property, i.e. are lifts provided if above the third floor?  Is there access to get a frame in? Access to the area that they will be working in must be free from any obstructions as any delays to the works being carried out will be chargeable.
  • Is there an area large enough to work in, free from any furniture or clutter? Our fitters have their own vacuums and dust sheets and will prepare the area prior to working on the doorways. They will clean thoroughly after they finish. Be aware that there may be some fine dust left behind that will need to be cleaned after they have gone. We recommend removing items affected by dust prior to the installation.
  • Are you available for measures on the weekend as well as evenings or mornings during the week?  Our fitters will need to be with you long enough to measure the doors or doorways and to have a brief chat with you regarding the logistics of power onsite, working areas and what works they will recommend to us to be carried out as part of the fitting service.

If the fitters determine that you might need draught excluders or new door stops on your frames, or sundry items need to be supplied, like sand and cement for external doors, silicones or sealants, etc., they will give our Sales team a list, which will be priced up as part of the finalised quote.

There is a time element to be allowed for with the fitting of any door. Firstly the survey needs to be carried out, then post survey the price of the installation needs to be agreed with you. The next stage will see the doors ordered and frames, handles and door furniture and any sundries. Finally the doors, frames and door furniture need to be delivered to site and any finishing (painting, varnishing or wood staining) needs to be carried out onsite by your painters as necessary as we currently do not offer a full finishing service on our doors, only some of them qualify for full finishing – like the steel doors and some of the internal and external doors we supply, please ask us to clarify which ones. Finally, the fitters will attend site and fit the doors and frames and any door furniture.

PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to fit an external door and frame if it has not been primed and undercoated or wood stained prior to the fitters visit to carry out the installation. The door and frame must be sealed against the elements and moisture ingress before an installation. If we come to site and they are not prepared, we will have to charge for the missed fitting dates at 80% of the daily rates per carpenter.

We hope that this helps to explain the processes involved. If there is anything here that you need explained or you would like to get more clarity on, please call us on 020 3743 7324 or drop us a line by email on sales@tradingdoors.co.uk.
