Entrance Doors, uPVC, Aluminium & Timber Entrance Doors - Cirencester, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.
Every home in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire has at least one entrance door. It's probably the most important feature of the home, one that performs a variety of functions.
Safe & Secure Entrance Doors
As the name suggests, entrance doors, both front and back, are the main point of entry to the home. They let you in, and keep unwanted visitors out, so their first function is security. They need to be made of solid material, securely attached to a robust frame and fitted with appropriate locks. Advanced security features are fitted as standard to most doors nowadays.
Secondly, entrance doors keep your home safe from the elements. A secure fit to the frame eliminates draughts, and weather-proofing seals the door against the wind and the rain. You can rest inside snug and secure, no matter what the weather is doing outside your front door!
Thirdly, there is aesthetic appeal. Your entrance door makes a strong visual statement about your home. It's the first thing that visitors see, so it needs to look welcoming. Many people choose timber entrance doors for this reason, as wood has a natural warmth about it that has great character and appeal. However, you can also choose doors made from uPVC or even aluminium, which will look just as good in the right setting.
Available in a variety of finishes
Entrance doors are available in a variety of finishes, from natural wood-grains to brilliant white plastic, or even a combination of these. You can have a timber finish facing the outside, and a smooth, easily-cleaned uPVC finish on the inside, or vice-versa. Doors can also be fully or partially glazed.
Although important, entrance doors are so ubiquitous that they tend to get overlooked. Nevertheless, they're an investment that will pay dividends year after year.
