You can simply contact our friendly staff, and we will guide you throughout the entire process--from choosing the right door for you to installation.
Although there are numerous DIY tutorial videos out there, we do not recommend that you install a door yourself since it requires great attention to detail. People typically call professional and licensed carpenters to install them. The reason is to avoid damaging the door, frame, or hardware, which would only end up costing you more in the long run.
Corinthian or Hume doors are renowned, not just in Australia but throughout the world, for the variety of options and quality. They are not exactly cheap, so you need to protect your investment to make sure they are installed correctly. It would be best to call licensed, professional carpenters to do it correctly the first time.
The installation time will depend on the type and size of the door, access to the site, types of hardware, and the door frames. Typically, it will take about 3-5 hours to install a door. The process may take longer if the carpenter needs to insulate the door to save on electricity.
The professional cost will depend on what is involved in your installation. The contractor will consider the style of hardware, size, and shape of the frame, access to the site, the complexity of the job. It will also depend on your location.
The short answer is yes. It is not only for your protection but also for the contractors, as well.
This is one compelling reason why you should only hire professionals; to avoid any unnecessary damage. We can also recommend, using professional and licenced painters for your timber door, for it to become a conversation piece. After all, your door is the first thing that greets your visitors as they enter your home.
Make sure that the access to the door is free of any obstruction. When the professional door installers spend more time cleaning the access way, it will add to the number of labour hours, and your costs will accrue. Other than that, you do not have to do anything else.
You may think that the licensed carpenter would be responsible for discarding your old door. But this is not part of the service contract. You can easily arrange for us to include in the quotation the process of disposing of your old door.
