Buying a front door

We’re looking to get a new front door - either wood or composite - and hoping to do so in a way that won’t break the bank (door + fitting sub £500??). Does anybody have any recommendations please?

Hope this is ok as a separate post - I know someone already posted about door stripping but they only got one reply and not relevant here. Thanks in advance!

Theres a shop on Penge high st opposite the old police station that does decent looking wood doors.

I’m not sure if less than £500 is likely, but we used Crystal Doors and Windows (https://www.crystalwindows.co.uk/products/doors/) and had a great experience installing a composite door with a 5 point locking system. They can be a bit 'sales’y but the quality of the product and their team is really great.

I’m also not sure about sub £500 but Gary recently did our internal doors and he was excellent:

Have you tried The Old Bath House down near Bell Green? (http://oldbathhouse.co.uk/about-us)

They’re in the centre of the roundabout there and used to sell reclaimed doors if that’s what you are looking for.

If you do find a new wooden front door including fitting for under £500, please do let me know so I can shoot myself in the head for what we paid.

I took a course on hanging doors. What I learnt is I will never hang a door.

We did it once for our kitchen door. Never again.

Yeah, I’m realising the same thing… You can get the door for £100, but with everything else it’s a grand+ and can’t be done until January. Who knew.
