Sliding door repair

Over the last couple of years, many Australians have started installing sliding doors as a way to save on space and have a practical, modern design that works well for any home. However, if your doors aren't sliding correctly, are coming off the tracks or are starting to malfunction in a different way, you will need to address the issue before it gets out of hand.

Luckily, Melbourne's skilled handymen can fix any issue that you might be having with your sliding doors so that they can work smoothly again. Your repairman will be able to assess the damage and determine what the right course of action should be. Most of the time, it's the door rollers that require replacing for the door to function correctly again.

Other times, the issue lies in the wheels or the tracks, which is why it's vital to assess the problem properly and determine what's causing your sliding door to malfunction before taking the appropriate steps to fix the issue.

How Do Door Installers Price Their Services?

On average, door installation costs range between $150 and $2,000, or about $125-$250 per hour, not including the cost of the door.

Let’s take a look at some of the main factors handymen take into consideration when calculating the cost of their services.

Outdoor vs indoor door

The first factor door installers or handymen consider when determining the price of their services is whether you’re looking to install an exterior or interior door. Exterior doors are heavier and made to be weather resistant and secure. This makes them harder to install, requiring more time and effort. This makes exterior door installations more expensive than interior ones.

Type of door

The type and material of the door also play a role in the price of the services. For example, wooden doors can cost much less than fiberglass doors. Additionally, you can expect to pay more for an outside door than and interior one.

When it comes to different types of doors, there are several different options you can go with including the standard wood door, fiberglass, steel, French door and more. All of these come at different prices and have their unique benefits.

Size and shape

In addition to the type and material of the door, its shape and size also play a role in its cost. Larger doors, such as garage doors can cost more than standard entry doors. Additionally, the more details the door has and the more custom work it requires (such as a rounded arch or a custom frame) the more costly it will be.

Design of the door

Do you want your door to stand out as a spectacular piece of architecture and give your home some personality? If so, you can always decide to go with a custom-designed door with hand-carved details that will give your home a lot of charm. However, if you go with a custom-made design you can expect to pay a higher price than you would for a standard door design.

Replacement or installation

Door replacement can cost an additional $100-$250 on top of the installation price if the job requires a custom frame.

Frequently asked questions

How much clearance is needed when hanging a door?

To make sure you don't have to struggle every time you open and close your door you'll need to measure the height and width of the old door or the framing, then use those measurements to buy the right size door. If your old door was a good fit, you could look for a door with the same measurements. If you're measuring the framing, a good rule of thumb is to allow a 2mm gap and both sides of the door and on top, and an 8 mm gap on the bottom.

How do you paint a prehung door?

Before you begin painting, you'll need to choose the right colour and select the right tools for the job. Then, you'll need to prep your door for painting. You can either decide to paint your door in place or paint it on a sawhorse. Remove or protect the door's knobs and hinges using painter's tape and start painting.

How do you fix a gap in a door?

Assess the opening to determine where the incorrect gap is occurring. Sometimes gaps can be caused by loose or missing screws. Make sure all screws are in place and are tightened. Check to see if all the hinges are the same size and be careful not to mix in standard and heavyweight hinges. If you keep seeing light coming in through the door, you may need to replace your old weather stripping to give your door a nice seal and fix the gap.

How much space should be between door and door jamb?

There should be a space of 2mm between the door and door jamb around the sides and on top, and an 8 mm space on the bottom. If your door doesn't fit these requirements, you will need to make further adjustments, so it fits correctly.
