Which is the best door for your home?

The front door of your home is a sometimes overlooked, yet very important part of your home. It’s one of the first things that guests will see, and can set the tone for the style and atmosphere of the house – so which kind of front door would suit your home the best?

One of the first important things to consider is the style of your home, and which kind of door will suit this style. So, let’s say you have a Victorian semi-detached, then a more traditional looking door will suit this house the best. Read on for our summaries of the different materials used for our doors, and the properties that each of these feature.


If you want a door that looks the part, but is also easier for you to maintain than traditional materials, then composite is for you. Composite can provide the look of a classic wooden door, but with easy maintenance and insulating properties. These doors are made with Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP), which provides an authentic timber appearance when moulded. This material also provides insulation and soundproofing.

Solid Wood

Solid wood is a classic traditional look, which is versatile enough to suit both traditional homes and newer builds. Although security may be a concern, you can rest assured that our solid wood doors are 48mm of solid timber, absolutely providing enough protection to keep your home safe. This solid wood core is enclosed in a protective highly stable plastic banding.


UPVC doors popularity comes from their multiple features and available colours, with a wide range able to suit a variety of homes, along with their value for money and easy maintenance.

Again, these doors work well with both traditional and modern homes, although this is more often modern ones rather than traditional; the range of colours and the look of the material means you’ll have most likely seen them all over newly built estates.

The benefits of electrical roller garage doors compared to traditional garage doors

When it comes to garage doors, electrical roller doors have a lot of benefits when compared to traditional ‘up and over’ doors. Keep reading for a run through of the benefits you’d get from electrical roller doors.


The biggest benefit of electrical roller garage doors are their convenience. These doors can be opened remotely from the comfort of your car, making them perfect for the colder weather, as well as just more convenient in general. The remote for opening these doors is operational up to 50 meters away, and the accompanying control panel which fits to the wall features a light for ease of access.


The security of your garage and home may be a concern, but roller doors are made with your safety in mind. Remote controls are equipped with unique encryption codes, so only your remote can open the door. You can have peace of mind that your contents and home will be safe along with the convenience of the remote control.


Although traditional doors made of wood may look better on older homes, electrical roller doors also look sophisticated and fit especially well with newer builds. A range of design options means that there are roller doors suitable for any style of home.
