These 2 questions are probably the first ones that anybody looking for a new or replacement UPVC front door will ask.  It’s important to at least get a good guide price for the work in advance, so that you know if the price you are being quoted for is reasonable and not a “rip-off”.

A good front door is important for both comfort and function and here you can find out more about prices, sizes & designs on our Buyers Guide for Front Doors.

Given that a typical front door gets opened and closed 1,000’s of times per year (365 days x 3 times per day) and that around 34% of burglars come in through one, it needs to be hard wearing and secure.

How much is the front door going to cost and what will make the price higher (or lower)?

Simply put, UPVC front door prices will be related to the size, design and quality of the product.

There is more detail on prices for Upvc Front doors later in the article. But to start with, the costs of a supply only, non-glazed, solid UPVC door can start from around £320 to £375 including VAT.

How Much Does a uPVC Front Door Cost?At this price, the door should have the basic specifications as follows:

  • Includes frame
  • Multi-point locks
  • 3 keys
  • Internal beading
  • Door furniture (letter box / door handle)
  • 85mm or 150mm threshold
  • Steel reinforced frame
  • 10-year guarantee

The larger the door you need, and the more options you add, the higher the cost is likely to be.

Choice of design affects door prices

How Much Does a uPVC Front Door Cost?What the doors look like will also affect the pricing for the job. With UPVC front doors there a number of design options, but primarily you would find:

  • Solid – non glazed doors
  • Part or full length glazing
  • Cottage door style
  • Stable door style

In each of these categories you have options for:

  • Colour
  • Surface finish
  • Furniture
  • Glazing – double or single or triple

There are dozens and dozens of design styles for UPVC Front doors and when you add to that the different finishes and colour options, your choices are almost limitless.

Opening in or out

You get the choice to have the door open inwards or outwards. Most front doors open inwards, but if you have a particular need to make it open outwards, then there is likely to be an added charge for this.

Side Panel options

For oversize openings side and top panels are the solution of choice for most properties.

Many homeowners opt for fully glazed side panels, but you can combine glazed sections with solid UPVC infill panels if you wish.

Side panels are recommended to be double glazed with toughened glass, both as a security measure and from an energy efficiency standpoint.

Frosted or patterned glass is a popular option for use in the side panels. Leaded glass is also available.

Energy ratings affects prices for front doors

These days, manufacturers supply an energy rating for their doors. The rating is from the BFRC (British Fenestration Rating Council).

Its’ format is to use an alphabetical and colour coded system to denote the energy efficiency of the door. Ratings run from A to G, although doors with a rating of F or G won’t meet current building regulation standards.

  • Some suppliers can boast an “A+ rating” for their UPVC Front doors, Everest being one of those who do so.

3 or 5 lever mortice locks, backed up by steel reinforced frames and multi-point locks give tremendous security to these doors.

  • Energy efficient

Cottage doors & Stable doors

stable & cottage doorsTwo specialised “doors of character” are often used to give a home a more individual look. Cottage & stable doors can be used at the front or back of the house, but a lot of buyers like to just use them at the back of the home – especially the stable door design.

Cottage doors most often are designed to give a “rustic” look in keeping with what you would imagine the door of a real country cottage would look like.

Stable doors, also lean towards “the rustic” look but have the added feature of being 2 separate halves. This split door feature allows the top section to be opened independently of the bottom half of the door (usually the top opens inwards).
