How to choose a front door to match your property type
A new front door can dramatically change the appearance of your home. With this in mind, it’s important to choose the right type of door to match your property type. The design of your front door is important, as is the material you choose. You should also ensure that your new door meets current energy efficiency and security requirements.
If you want advice on the best front door for your home, you’ve come to the right place.
It’s a material thing
When you want low maintenance, then a uPVC or composite door is the best choice for you. Composite doors are an incredibly versatile option. Their realistic woodgrain finish perfectly replicates the look of real timber and can feature a range of different decorative glass sections. Their solid internal construction creates a door which is energy efficient and ultra-secure. All our composite doors are individually made to meet your exact requirements. Choose from a range of glazing and hardware to perfectly complement your home.
uPVC front doors are the most popular choice for UK homeowners. They are the most cost effective option and are available in a range of styles and colours. uPVC doors require virtually no maintenance to keep them looking new and can be customised to suit all types of property.
If you live in a conservation area or listed building, then a timber door is the best option for you. At Kingfisher Windows, all our timber doors undergo a four-stage treatment process. They are dipped in preservative, primed, then spray painted twice to create a durable outer layer which reduces the need for regular maintenance. Modern timber doors provide a beautiful traditional aesthetic combined with the high performance of a truly contemporary product.
