What is a ‘basic door replacement’ service?
We’ve often found that our customers like to time their door replacements to coincide with other works to minimise disruption. Occasionally, we’d even find that the customer had unknowingly contracted multiple people to do the same work! For this reason, we created a basic door replacement service, whereby we do the absolute minimum level of service in order to allow other contractors to complete the making good of the plasterwork, the painting, the pointing, and any other services across the whole property. This allows your contractors to work without stepping on each others toes, keeping your building works as smooth and hassle free as possible.
What’s the point of having a slimmed down service?
If a customer has other work going on in the property, services provided by different trades can sometimes overlap. We like to be flexible with our services so we can offer our customers the best possible service for their situation. This allows all your contractors to work without stepping on each others toes, keeping your building works as smooth and hassle free as possible. This will save you money – up to 30% on a comprehensive fit.
