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.
