In this guide we look at the average uPVC door repair cost and how much it will cost to make your existing door as good as new.
uPVC doors are a popular choice in the UK, thanks to the fact that they tend to be durable, energy efficient and affordable. Despite being durable, however, they can get damaged due to heavy use, vandalism or accidental damage.
The price of repairing your uPVC door will depend on a number of factors, including the type and extent of the damage, the quality of the door itself, and the urgency/timing of the repair.
The cost of hiring a professional tradesperson to repair your door can vary greatly depending on the problem, from around £42 to repair a door hinge up to £305 to repair a full glass door using toughened glass.
In this guide we talk about the various costs of door repairs, but it is first worth establishing how bad the damage is. If your door has severe or complex damage then it may need (or be cheaper) to be replaced.

Your front door provides an important feature as the entryway to your home. Therefore, you want to make sure it’s in the best condition possible.
From wooden panels or plain uPVC, to glass accents and doors with decorative windows, there are a whole variety of front doors out there.
The cost to repair your front door depends on the type and quality of the door itself, as well as the type of damage. Among the most popular front door issues are:
Alternatively, if you’re not a DIY enthusiast or the damage is more extensive you can hire a professional door repair expert for £130-200 per day.
A damaged screen door can be extremely annoying, especially in the warmer months.
The cost to repair your screen door will depend on the material, quality, size and location of the door.
The total cost can vary greatly (from £70 to £600), but on average you can expect to pay around £300.
If you have to repair a glass door you can expect the cost to be in the region of £190 for a half door, or £305 for a full door – in both cases these would be door repairs using toughened glass.
As well as your door and door accessories (handles, hinges, locks), there are other repairs that you may need to consider. Other common door-related repairs include external lights, the doorbell and the front door canopy. Each of these repairs will have their own costs, so it’s worth speaking to your local door experts for costs and professional advice.
If the damage is fairly light, you may be able to keep the costs down and repair it yourself with a home door repair kit.
For example, a small hole in your door can be fixed using a filler or adhesive that is specifically designed to be used for uPVC door repairs. Just make sure you always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
For any heavy or complex damage to your uPVC door, we would recommend hiring a professional to carry out the work. The cost of the door repair will give you peace of mind that your door is safe, secure and in good working order.
