The building trade has come a long way over the past few decades, and windows and doors are no exception, there are many choices of styles and materials to use for your front door. Some offering improved security whereas some concentrate purely on the aesthetic or matching the period feature of the building and some focus on cost of materials to offer a cheaper option.
Choosing the Right Door
Before choosing a front door you must decide what functions you need the door to perform, this seems obvious but having somewhere to get in and out of your home is not the only thing you need a door to do. Does the door lead directly onto the street? Do you have and form of security gating or a letter box or do your need your door to perform these functions? Does your property have period features or a general aesthetic which needs to be matched? All of these factors and more need to be taken into account when choosing your door.
Entry doors need to be sturdy and weatherproof, they need to stand up against the elements of the weather as well as potential intruders whilst finishing off the look of your home, but finding a door which meets all these needs can be hard. Many older doors are made from wood which can warp, crack or suffer damage after years of exposure to the elements. Metal doors, though they don’t last forever will last longer and are often more secure though they don’t offer the look that many people prefer. Doors with glass panels can help bring light into your home but at the expense of security, but there are many choices including new resistant materials and combination doors offering security and design.
The costs of doors can vary hugely depending on what door you choose to go for, the best way to go forward is to speak to a number of companies and get some prices to choose from, this helps you get the best price for the job aswell as check out the company.
