    What tools do I need to replace my front door?

    Window Specialists

    I’m considering replacing my front door with one that keeps the heat in better as the hallway is usually awfully cold in the winter. What tools/equipment will I need to replace my front door?

    "Depends on what type of door you are fitting. If it's a wooden door you will need the following.
    Screwdrivers, hammer, chisels, drill, drill driver, electric or manual plane and possibly a circular saw if you need to take more then a quarter of an inch off the sides or bottom."

    "It will depend on what type of door you're replacing it with. If it's Upvc then you will need a saw crowbar hammer SDS hammer drill silicone gun possibly a reciprocation saw and a set square to mark facings with. A small block plane. If it's a wooden door then you need chisels a hammer and electric plane a saw a spirit level and to be perfectly honest. If you haven't installed a door before your prob will have a lot of trouble getting it to work. Windows are a bit easier to fit than a door. Doors have to be fitted very precisely or they won't work well or last long. I would highly suggest you get a company to do it as you will get it professionally fitted and if you get any problems further down the line you just call them to come and sort it and replace faulty parts etc all within the warranty. Thanks"

    "Hi, you will need impact, hammer drill, laser level, and mastic gun to seal around after you install the door. These are the basic tools that you need"
