You could ask the lady that runs the door shop in Penge (on the crossroads opposite the old Police Station & Pawlene Arms). She supplies both doors and can arrange for local tradesmen to fit.

Distinguish doors - on corner of Waldram Place and Perry Vale - just near 'rear' entrance to Forest Hill Station.

I would not recommend the place Stuart mentions. I bought an internal door from them a few years ago and I still think I was conned. Fitter was useless as well.
I got my front door from Dawes for Doors which is now and very nice is it is too. People who fitted it were most professional.

We used Dawes for Doors about 4 years ago and I wouldn't recommend them, they refused to fix a lock that jammed a month after the fitting which left us out of pocket to get it fixed and locked out of the house, the door has warped and you cant close it without having to use a key. They caused lots of hassle by messing us around and personally would never use them again.

We used this company for timber doors and windows and they were excellent and very good value, still working perfectly 3 years on. Only issue was neither the sales guy nor the fitters were 1st language English, so communication could have been better.
