We want to get either of the doors shown below with a "side light" (matching side panel), but we've been quoted $2,600 and $2,700 for them which seems crazy expensive! That includes locks, hinges, handles, installation, and removing and taking away the old door.
Hubby isn't handy at all so installing it ourselves isn't an option. Just wondering if anyone has bought a similar one and had it installed for cheaper?
ETA - I'm located in western Sydney, in case someone has used a local supplier :-)

Our front door is kind of similar to the bottom door there- except wider glass panels. We got it from a hardware store and it was $900 plus $400 matching side light. Our door is a lot wider than a standard door though. We got our hinges there too as it was trade price.
Our handle (long pull bar type thing) and roller mortise lock we got online. Great company, can share website if you're interested. It was between $1-200.
I can't help you with installation costs as hubby is a carpenter so he removed and hung the new door himself.
Could you source the materials yourself then hire a trade to remove/install for you? Not sure if that would be cheaper?

I can't believe the price! We have double front doors that I hate and would love to replace but had no idea of the cost.
Subbing for tips

That might be the way we'll go, sourcing ourselves and paying a chippy to install. Or maybe even contact a local chippy and see if they have a supplier - I've just googled 'custom made doors' and there are so many joinery companies in Sydney so that might be something to look into as well. I've actually thought we might get one large door rather than a normal door and side light, the side lights are so expensive!
Thanks for your response :-)

Ours is a Corinthian door from memory. Or Hume lol. Either one as were narrowed it down to the two manufacturers. Hubby then put in a special order from Hudson's (hardware store) but Bunnings also stock these brands. So they do different sizing too. We went with Hudson's though because of the trade discount he gets there.

That is crazy!! I just ordered something similar from eBay from a supplier for $175 plus freight!

And what sort of glass is in the panelling?

DH is in window and door making (mostly commercial and aluminium) and I just showed him the pic and asked if the price including instillation sounds right and he said it even sounds cheap!
Id say it'd be worth seeing if someone will install a pre bought one for you for less.
