    I want to have a vinyl door fitted to the front of my house as a replacement to my current door. As someone based in the southwest of England, what sort of price range could I expect from door fitters to complete this job? I’d like to know what the supply costs of an average mid-quality vinyl door would be and how professional contractors would charge in terms of the labour costs? I want to know what sort of quotes to expect from contractors in my area. Also, how long might this sort of work take on average?

    What is considered a full working day for a handyman? I often see the hourly and daily rates of different types of labourers. Is the daily rate a direct accumulation of the total hours worked. Say it’s 8 hours worked, is the daily rate just eight hourly rates? Or is the daily rate a separate charge that is actually more than the total number of hours worked x the hourly rate? How does this work? Does it vary based on the contractor and their industry? Does it depend on where the contractor is based? I’m really curious to know the ins and outs of hourly vs. daily rates of contractors. Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon.

    How can I find out if I am living in a listed building? Should I contact my local council or is there another authority I need to get in touch with?

    When it comes to renting, if I as a tenant would like to make some non-essential changes to my apartment (e.g. replace the shower), is it up to me to pay for the cost entirely? If a landlord approves of a shower upgrade, is he/she liable to help out with the payment to any extent or is it entirely up to me to cover the cost?

    One of my smoke alarms is on its last legs. I am aiming to buy a new one very soon. Since my current alarm only lasted a couple of years, I'd like to know what types of brands of smoke alarms I should consider for a long-lasting alarm?

    I am aware that contractors charge more in London. As someone based in the capital, couldn't I hire someone from outside of London, pay their travel costs and save money overall? Or are contractors required to work within their own region?
