Top Letterbox Replacement related questions

What are the benefits of hiring a Tasker to do a letterbox replacement?

Letterbox replacement is an essential and uncommon task that can be difficult to find a handyman or carpenter to do for you. Hiring a Tasker is the fastest and easiest way to find someone skilled enough to do your letterbox replacement. You can choose from several experienced Taskers and get it done within the day, so you can have a new letterbox to receive tomorrow’s mail. You can hire a Tasker from anywhere, with any device that has internet access.

Do I need to provide my tools or equipment for my letterbox replacement service?

No, there’s no need to provide your hired specialist with any tools or equipment as they should arrive prepared (as requested). Your hired Tasker has the experience, expertise and usually has the specific tools needed to do the job. But, if you have equipment that possibly makes their job go faster or easier, feel free to lend these to them.

How long does it take to install a letterbox replacement?

The time it takes to do a letterbox replacement will depend on the speed of your Tasker and the complexity of the job. If your letterbox replacement calls for removing the old one then merely bolting on the new one, this can take less than an hour. But if other tasks are needed, like widening the opening, expect the job to take at least two to three hours.

Can a Tasker also help me with my letterbox replacement service?

Absolutely. If you offer a letterbox replacement as a service yourself or run a business that does this, you can hire Taskers to assist you. Should you also provide other services that improve the appearance of home-like paving, decking, landscaping or gardening, you can employ Taskers for these as well. Be sure to be clear about what you want from your Taskers to avoid any misunderstanding.

Can I install a letterbox on a PVC door?

Yes, you can. You only have to find letterboxes designed for PVC doors online or at your local hardware store. There may be slight variations of PVC door letterboxes compared to those for wooden doors, such as the addition of a rubber gasket to ensure a tighter fit. Apart from that minor difference, letterboxes for PVC doors are installed similarly to those for wooden doors.

Can I do letterbox installation by myself?

You can do this as long as it’s only a matter of unscrewing the old letterbox and bolting on the new one. All you need is the appropriate screwdriver and silicone sealant if you wish to weatherproof the new letterbox. But if the installation requires complicated tasks like widening the door aperture, you should consider hiring a specialist to do this if you don’t have the right tools, skills and experience.

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 your 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 stops rainwater or snowmelt from getting 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.
