If you’re considering replacing your front door, one of the first questions that may come to mind is: “How much is a new front door?

The cost of a new front door can vary depending on several factors, including the material, design, size, and door installation expenses.

In this blog, we will explore these cost factors and give you an idea of what to expect when budgeting for a new entrance door.

How much does a new front door cost?

Front door prices can vary depending on several factors. Here are some average price ranges to give you an idea of door installation costs:

  • uPVC entrance doors: The average cost of uPVC entrance doors can range from £500 to £1,500, depending on the size, design complexity, glazing options, and additional features.
  • Aluminium entrance doors: Aluminium entrance doors tend to be slightly more expensive than uPVC doors. The price range for aluminium entrance doors is typically between £1,000 and £2,000.
  • Custom designs: If you have specific design requirements or want a custom-made front door, the cost may increase accordingly. Custom designs often require more time and effort to manufacture, depending on the type of door, resulting in higher prices.
  • Front door installation expenses: In addition to the cost of the door itself, it’s essential to factor in installation expenses. This can include removal of your old door if necessary, fitting the new door into your existing frame or creating a new one if needed, door furniture installation, and any additional work required for proper insulation and weatherproofing during your new front door installation.

While investing in a new front door does come with upfront costs, it is important not just as an aesthetic upgrade but also for its functionality. A high-quality entrance door provides enhanced security measures while improving energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer – ultimately leading to potential savings on heating bills over time.

What are the cost factors and installation expenses of a new front door?

When considering the cost of a new front door, it’s important to take into account various factors that can influence the overall price. Here are some key cost factors and installation expenses to consider:

  • Material: The material you choose for your front door will have a significant impact on the cost. uPVC doors, which are the most popular options, tend to be more affordable compared to aluminium or a composite front door, also a popular choice. However, aluminium doors offer enhanced durability and aesthetics, which may come at a higher price point.
  • Design complexity: The design complexity of your chosen front door can affect its cost. Standard designs with simple panels or glazing options will generally be less expensive than custom-made or intricate designs.
  • Size: The size of the door is another factor that can impact the cost. Larger doors require more materials and labour for manufacturing and installation, which may result in higher prices.
  • Glazing options: If you opt for glazing in your uPVC, aluminium or composite door, such as decorative patterns or obscured glass for privacy purposes, it can add to the overall cost. Additionally, energy-efficient double glazing may also increase the price, but offers benefits such as improved insulation and noise reduction.
  • Hardware selections: The type and quality of hardware you choose for your front door, including handles, hinges and door locks, can vary in price range. Higher-quality hardware options may come at an additional expense but often provide better security features and longevity.
  • Additional features: Depending on your preferences or specific requirements such as added security features like multi-point locking systems or smart lock integration – these additional features can contribute towards increasing costs.
  • Location and accessibility: Location plays a role in installation expenses as factors such as accessibility, transportation costs, and labour rates can vary. If your property is located in a remote area or has limited access for installation vehicles, it may result in higher installation costs.
