How many door linings are you lot putting in per day. I'm getting about 6 in after building them up and bracing them in the morning. They are spot on as I'll be swinging the doors but it just feels slow. Could prob do 1 or 2 more but has only been 6 on each floor in these houses

Can't say that I've actually built that many door casings in recent years - they all seem to come ready made and often with the doors pre-hung these days

We make all our own and I’d say it takes me 10 minutes to make up a set(chiselling our rebate on lintel included in making them up)
and 10 minutes to install a set into a timber opening. Using masonry fixings will easily double the installation time.
However,I hang the door at the same time as this is in my opinion the best and quickest way as you fix the hinge side then hinge and swing the door then fix and pack closing side of frame to suit door.

Tbh,6 a day is really quite slow and you’d be looking to at least double that tally if you are an experienced joiner.

Have fitted after plastering before agreed it can be better. Ha yeh I thought it was slow too! Got plenty of experience must just be slowing down! At 20 mins a set you should be banging 20 in a day. Think got a few others bits done the ground floor sets built up.

What's a site labour price on fitting linings?
