How to choose the right new front door

The right new front door can create just as much of an impression as an expensive piece of furniture in your home. They are seen every day, so try to select a style with features that match the rest of your home as closely as possible. Choosing a new front door requires as much care as picking out furniture or decor… so what to go for?

Some things to consider when selecting your new front door:

The style of your new door can change the look and feel of the front of your home, as well as your hallway. A new front door should help you secure your home, in addition to helping to keep it warm, minimise draughts and reduce noise.

Think carefully about what kind of visual effect would you like to achieve with your new front door?

Our front doors are available in a range of styles, finishes, glazing options and advanced security features, our high quality PVC-U doors will keep your home warm, quiet and secure.

Areas of your home like your front door need to be a little more private than others. With our range you can choose a glass which will be perfect for its purpose. Each of the popular patterns offers a different level of obscuration, providing you the privacy you require whilst maximising the level of daylight passing through the glass.
(Contact us to see our full range).

Good examples of new front door glass styles

We all know that door handles open and close doors, but what you might not realise is how much they play a part in the styling of our home. They can decorate your door in a subtle manner and can give your home character and added finesse. All our high quality door handles have been designed for comfort and ease of operation.

Doors are available with multi-point locking systems which lock into the frames in multiple locations, passing through steel keeps and securely fastening into the door frame helping make your home more secure.

Our standard door thresholds are perfectly adequate for general use, however many people choose a low threshold, as they are perfect for wheelchair or pushchair use, or where young children are often running across doorways.

To keep your home warm and quiet, a range of double or even triple glazed sealed units are available, to provide excellent insulation, draught proofing and sound reduction – improving your carbon footprint, reducing your heating bills and keeping the noise out!

What are the benefits of uPVC windows?

We are often asked what the main benefits of replacing old windows with uPVC windows are? It’s a common problem – old wooden or dating PVC double-glazed windows are starting to look scruffy and are letting in drafts and the cold weather.

One of the best materials for replacement window frames (certainly the most cost-effective) is ‘un-plasticised PolyVinyl Chloride’ or more popularly called uPVC windows or PVCu windows.

So what are the main benefits of installing uPVC Windows

Graphic for 'A' Rated uPVC windowsThey provide better heat insulation

The high insulation properties of double glazed and triple glazed uPVC windows make them the most effective and cost-effective way to insulate your home. Our double and triple glazed uPVC windows have a vacuum between the glass panes, which stops cold air and draughts from entering your home. This also ensures that the warmth that you generate from costly heating, stays inside instead of escaping through dating windows.

Our uPVC windows have been awarded an energy rating of up to A+ and are made of a material that’s achieved a BFRC (British Fenestration Rating Council) Green Guide A rating.

But there’s even more. Our products are designed to provide excellent U-value ratings for their efficiency at keeping the heat in your home – and the very best levels of Window Energy Rating (WER).

They also provide better acoustic insulation

It is also true that our noble glazed and triple glazed uPVC windows cut down noise from outside by as much as 70%.

uPVC is extremely durable. Wooden windows can rot and warp, however uPVC window frames are storm and weather proof because damp cannot penetrate into the frames. If you live in a Norfolk coastal property, then our PVCu windows are perfect for you because they are resistant to corrosion caused by the salt in the air. No painting, staining or sealing is needed with uPVC window frames – just the occasional clean with water and a little detergent! The open ‘Tilt and Turn’ mechanism on our uPVC windows also allows for easy opening in two directions to to aid cleaning and assist with cross ventilation in the summer.

Our uPVC Windows are extremely secure

uPVC is very strong and robust material. This is enhanced by a metal framework inside the uPVC casing. We don’t cut corners with our security locks and fixings either. We use Yale door and window security products because since 1840, Yale has been leading the way in the locking industry, continually pioneering new products to keep people and property safe. Their brand name is known worldwide for quality, innovation and steadfast security.

In addition to White, we have three woodgrain shades with our uPVC windows – elegant Mahogany, warm Golden Oak and gorgeous Cherrywood. You can also specify White on the inside and your woodgrain colour of choice on the outside.

We also have 13 Artisan woodgrain finishes are so fine that it’s almost impossible to distinguish them from the real thing! Gorgeous, striking colours like Green, Grey and Cream, or our sumptuous selection of woodgrains such as Rustic Cherry, Irish Oak, AnTeak and Antique Oak are extremely popular.

Our uPVC Windows are recyclable

Our uPVC windows are packed with clever features like plastic thermal reinforcements made from 100% recycled material to keep in more heat, to advanced glass that can reflect heat back into your home and capture free heat from the sun through solar gain. Most importantly, our products are also designed so that they can be collected and recycled back into new PVCu products.

Types of uPVC windows

We manufacture and install casement uPVC windows, Bay windows, Bow Windows and our popular and elegant ‘CONSERVATION GRADE’ vertical sliding PVCu sash windows, which provide all the benefits of period charm while retaining the high technology of uPVC at a cost-effective price.
