    Anyone had a fire door fitted recently? Had a quote for £280 for install only. Another 170 odd for the door itself. Reasonable? Seems a lot to me but im no expert.

    Are these internal or external fire doors and what are you fitting them in?

    If you already have an opening and you're just getting someone to swap out one fire door to another then yes it sounds expensive! If you need an opening cut in a wall and framed etc then its not expensive.

    Door itself will be about 80 quid from memory when we had them fitted. Its the fitting that will set you back a good few notes.

    That honestly sounds really expensive. They've loaded on overheads because it's a small job.
