"The cost of installing a pilaster can vary depending on several factors such as the size and complexity of the project, the materials used, and the location of the installation.

In terms of labor costs, a professional carpenter or contractor would typically charge an hourly rate or a fixed fee for the installation of a pilaster. The hourly rate can vary depending on the experience and location of the professional. On average, a carpenter may charge anywhere from $15 to $40 per hour for their services.

In addition to labor costs, the cost of materials for a pilaster installation can vary widely depending on the size and design of the pilaster, as well as the materials used. For example, a pilaster made from wood may cost less than one made from stone or marble.

Overall, the cost of installing a pilaster can be several hundred pounds, depending on the specific project."

"Pilasters finish off the side of the doors with a more refined and finished look. All pilasters come as a pair; one pilaster for each side of the door. Pilasters are available plain, Fluted or with a double panel with a moulded plinth at the bottom.
Cost is determined by the size, quality, ornateness and materials used to make the pilasters."
