Factors that determine door repair costs
Although rates for door repair don’t differ much, the actual cost of a job still depends on several factors like the following:
Number of doors
You can expect a higher rate if you need more than one or two doors repaired. This will definitely be more expensive because it takes a longer time to fix multiple doors.
Size of door
Bigger and taller doors, like the double doors usually used as front doors for homes, are harder to work with. They’re also heavy, so if a door like this needs to be removed from its hinges and carried to a flat surface prior to repair, you’ll need to prepare for bigger costs.
Some materials that are commonly involved in door repair include screens, locking mechanisms, hinges, frames, glass, and door rollers (for sliding doors). These can add up to huge expenses if you need several doors fixed.
Door repair rates per state
If you live in Victoria and you have doors at home that need fixing, now is the perfect time to find a handyman. Door repair services in the state cost approximately $50/hr, which is the lowest rate in the country. Meanwhile, door repairers in New South Wales and Queensland are in agreement when it comes to the fees they charge for their services. In both states, door repair costs around $60/hr.
