new door

Recommended Posts

Been looking around and can't really price online but here's the scenario.

 

External door into garden from a shed / side passage, old door is a bit worse for wear.

I'm going to replace it soon, does anyone know how much a new door and frame could cost (fitted too.

doesn't have to be 'double glazed' / UPVC but probably a little more resilient than your average 'z-frame' door.

 

Also can you get external doors to open the wrong way round? (so it could open into the exterior) making it easier to get bikes etc out of a relatively small space.

strange question but I gave up looking at DIY sites and thought maybe someone here may know.

Something in the back of my mind says that the way external doors open are controlled by building regulations. In the event of fire, for speed and ease of opening from the inside they have to open outwards. I could be totally wrong of course. However, if it's from a garage or shed I wonder if that would be exempt?

aye it is not considered a means of egress from the property.

if you imagine back in the day... there is the house, then an outdoor coal bunker, shed/washhouse and an outside loo.

they basically put a roof over these to 'connect' the two parts of the house where I don't think it used to.

I would think it's exempt though i'm not familiar with the regs!

the external door is between in the old alley/passage way and opens, indeed inwards.

Which way does your front door open...?

I assume the reason a front door opens into the property is so you can't be blocked in! but that's an aside. ;)
