Whatever the period and external décor of your property, you’ll find the perfect match, and all our front doors are supplied and fitted in a range of colours and finishes.
Wondering whether to choose a uPVC or composite door for your home? Take a look at the differences between the two before making your choice:
uPVC Doors – made from an insulated steel frame, encased in uPVC (un-plasticized polyvinyl chloride). The sealed unit is guaranteed to be thermally-efficient and strong.
Composite Doors – made from a combination of materials: wood, glass-reinforced plastic, insulating foam and PVC. A timber hardwood subframe makes the design extremely durable.
uPVC Doors – the high performance, strong outer frame provides an excellent standard of security for your home.
Composite Doors – thanks to the glass-reinforced plastic core, the security of the composite door is second-to-none.
uPVC Doors – good levels of thermal insulation are achieved as a result of the multi-chambered uPVC design.
Composite Doors – the inner layer of insulating foam in a composite design provides exceptionally high standards of thermal efficiency.
uPVC Doors – available in a range of styles, and finishes. The UPVC ‘plastic’ sheen is characteristic of the material, even though woodgrain finishes are now available.
Composite Doors – the major attraction of the composite door is the quality of the woodgrain finish. Owners enjoy the beauty of a wood aesthetic, without having to worry it will warp or rot.
uPVC Doors – the expected durability of uPVC doors is between 20-25 years. They won’t warp, rot or crack and need only a light touch maintenance.
Composite Doors – will easily last 30 years, and normally longer of well looked after. You need only wipe over your composite door to keep it looking good-as-new.
