What Type of Front Door Should I Buy?

Front DoorsIf you are about to make a change to your front door, which one are you going to buy, and do you know which one s the best for you?

There are a few choices when it comes to what a front door is built from:

  1. timber
  2. upvc
  3. composite
  4. aluminium

Of these you have soft or hardwood also to choose from. Hardwood, aluminium and composite doors are sometimes quite pricey, so that is why upvc doors have gained ground over the years.

uPVC offers a very tempting combination of lower pricing, colour choice, long life, low maintenance and high security. If you think about it, what else do you want from a front door?

So if you want to get a smart, strong long lasting door, you can find out more about them here:

Front Doors Styling

The design or appearance of your front door can reflect or contrast the character of your home. However,  it’s not wise to take things too far. For example, it’s not really going to work well if you put an ultra contemporary design hi-spec Aluminium door on your charming country cottage or vise-versa with a cottage door on an upmarket modernistic property. Contrasting can only go so far.

Same thing with colours – you may like pink or purple, but does it work for your house?

Glazing for the door can totally change how it looks – and there is a very wide range of choice here, from no glass at all, to full length glazing. OF course, you must fit double glazed panels where glass is uses ans also it should be tempered safety glass for extra safety & security.

Don’t  forget to pay attention to the “furniture”. Letter boxes, door knockers, rain guards, handles and locks. Quality can vary here,  but don’t go cheap & nasty.
