Damian went over and above to ensure the letterbox was installed perfectly and also readjusted the gate to be level again. This was not part of the job, however Damian’s discerning eye meant he offered to do this at no extra charge. A very generous gesture. Damian’s attention to detail and quality of workmanship is excellent and we will look to use his services again in the future as a result. Very friendly and easy to get along with, Damian is a true professional!

What do letterbox replacement services include?

Letterbox replacement services include whatever tasks that are needed to install a new letterbox in your door. You can hire this service whether the old letterbox is damaged or if you want a new letterbox that is of a different design.


For a complete replacement of the letterbox, this service includes removing the old letterbox, widening the letterbox aperture if needed, installing the new letterbox and applying the sealant to protect it from the elements. If the existing letterbox still works and only the old letterbox flap is defective, you can also request for old letterbox flap replacement instead of having to change the letterbox.


Old letterbox removal

When your letterbox has issues like a non-working or missing flap or a worn draught excluder that no longer keeps the wind out, you can have the old letterbox removed. Your letterbox replacement specialist can deftly detach both the external and internal sections of the old letterbox, taking care not to damage your door. Should your specialist find that the old letterbox is still usable and only needs a mailbox door replacement, they may recommend replacing this part alone.  


Letterbox aperture adjustment

There are many types of letterboxes on the market, and as there is no standard size, you may end up with a new letterbox that is larger or smaller than its door aperture. In case the new letterbox you wish to have installed doesn’t fit, your hired letterbox replacement specialist can make the needed adjustments to fit your door. Your specialist can do some simple carpentry on the letterbox slot to widen or narrow it to the right size.  


Letterbox or mail installation

After removing the old letterbox and making adjustments to the aperture as needed, your specialist can proceed with this type of post box installation. They will follow the installation instructions of the letterbox; this usually involves placing both halves of the letterbox on the appropriate sides of the door opening and bolting them in place with the enclosed screws.


Letterbox weatherproofing

Your letterbox replacement specialists can do simple weatherproofing on our new letterbox. They can apply clear silicone on the top and sides of the letterbox then leave it to dry. This application of silicone serves as a sealant - it also keeps rainwater or snowmelt to get into the letterbox and your door.


Installing a letter cage

The letter cage is an accessory that stores and keeps your post from piling up on the floor. This also prevents your precious pooch from chewing on them. Your hired specialist can install this behind the letterbox slot as per its installation instructions for an additional fee.
