    Rough cost to shorten doors

    Carpenters

    How much would it be roughly for someone to come out and shorten 9 doors, since the carpets have been fitted the doors no longer swing so need a small amount taken off each and the door hung again?

    Modern pressed panel doors would be £15./20.00 each"

    "A ball park figure would be £30 a door. This would at least cover a days work."

    "Hi Rebecca yes £20-30 per door sounds about right. That would be to rip down the door with a skill saw then rehang each door. Hope this helps."
