Cost Of A Patio Door?

Hey guys, anyone had a Patio door fitted recently? How much did you pay?

I'm looking to get new windows & a patio door. I have a general idea of how much the windows cost as my friend had hers done recently & we have the same size house. I have no idea how much a door will cost!

Thanks!

I've seen this site mentioned before but don't know myself personally,treat it as a guide.It will vary prices,if your down south,it's always more usually for repairs and such.

I hope you're quoting choc1969 & not bloody JFK!!??

Thanks for the info folks. I was thinking just shy of a 1k would be just about bearable!

I know I'm going to have to invite double glazing salemen around, not looking forward to that.

you need to be Fensa or Certass registered to fit any replacement glazing, we are Certass reg.
which means we are self certified. To do the work yourself/friend you will need building regs.

This scheme is to stop shoddy diyers doing awfull jobs!!

you sure about that? Surely, its up to me if i want to replace a broken pane of glass in a window.

its not exactly rocket science to fit a window / door.

two of my mates fit D/G for a living and have done for 20 years and arent registered with anyone.

you have to be fensa registered or pay for each job that you fit via building regs this is the law at present

There are two ways that you can ensure compliance with relevant regulations, firstly you may employ a contractor or installer who is registered under the FENSA self-certification scheme. This contractor will be approved to carry out the work in accordance with relevant regulations without inspection by the council and will inform FENSA when installation has been completed. Random inspections of completed work are carried out.


If you are not using a FENSA registered contractor or if you're doing the work yourself then you will need to arrange building regulation approval yourself.

You can of course fit them yourself if you want to you dont have to get a FENSA installer or building regs involved if you dont want to, it may cause problems if you sell your house in the future tho but if you are planning on living there for along time i wouldnt bother

Certass and Fensa was started to stop people buying from Wickes(:oops:)and trying to fit themselves, then selling their house with problems/ bodges. I take out lots of Wickes stuff.............fitted without lintels, bowed frames, out of level/ square, make a fortune in scrap aluminium

exactly what I thought. its not illegal as suggested.

when it comes to selling, I'd just say they were fitted in march 2002 :-D

my mates do most of their work for local councils and are not members of fensa or certass so its wrong to suggest you have to be a member

Their work WILL however be covered by building regs. , this is far more expensive,

Also products are dated ie. profile and glass units so you will be caught out by a surveyor:roll:

I've seen some jobs like that actually done by some of these so called certified Certass and Fensa companies.

Best advice to the OP is avoid the big companies, get a local company with a good reputation.

Certass and Fensa do random spot checks so these firms will get caught out , local companies will still have to be registered, we get all of our business thro word of mouth and we don't compete on price - this works well for us as we are very succesfull, we are sometimes far more expensive but people TRUST us (unlike the fraudulent people claiming false dates of installations!.....csithingy)

i find this very hard to believe we do work for the council doing sanctury work for abused women and care and repair for disabaled access ect and all contractors must be fensa reg not only to cover ourselves but the council as well

I know how you feel, we get these so called 'experts' asking for a quote, they think they know more than you about windows(internet research my 4rse), they then want a dirt cheap price, we spot them a mile off and just add a zero to their qoute, that soon gets rid of them:thumbsup:

no but he will ask for the fensa certificate that must be supplied for all instalations after march 2002

you have 3 options on changing your patio doors
1. work must be done by a FENSA member
2. work must done by a CERTASS member
3. OR, any one can do it but you will need your local building inspector to approve it.

Simples!
