Can anyone recommend a company who changes doors?

Many thanks

What kind of door are you thinking of? Upvc, composite, wooden?

It does depend on why you are asking. Nice
but not cheap.
Prevent intrusion, go to Banhams, even more expensive.

Not worried, go to B&Q

On intrusion, look very hard at the the front, and all, of the entry points of your house. No point in having a brilliant front door if they can come in through the windows.
Good luck

Thanks! It is currently UPVC but ideally I would like to change it to a wooden one.

You could always buy the door and get a Southwark council contrator to do it,my mum in law (private house) has used them quite a bit lately and was happy with them,I think you pay an hourly rate.

My neighbour manages the Penge branch of the London Door Company - his front door is very nice!

If you fancy a wooden door and you are prepared to do a bit of sanding/painting, you could fit a reclaimed one. Plenty on ebay or at reclamation yards like Alladins Cave in Lewisham. Just look for something with the same dimensions as your existing one.

As a bonus, old doors seem to be much better made (ie stronger) than new ones!

Before you go further are you in a house or flat with a door onto a balcony or in a flat with the door into a lobby?

If you are in the later you should consult you landlord before doing anything to ascertain exactly what sort of door you should install and what sort of fire protection it should provide. You should ignore the sort of door you have now since far too many flats have had their safe fire resisting front doors replaced with very unsafe non fire resisting ones. This is dangerous to everyone resident in the building.
