Buying Double Glazed Exterior Doors For Your Home

The market for new & replacement double glazed doors is very large in the UK. There is so much choice it can be almost to easy to be distracted from the core key features that you really need.

Let’s face it. the key things you should be getting from any external house door are:

  1. Security
  2. life-span
  3. Appearance
  4. Energy efficiency

No matter which way you approach the subject, your external doors need to be strong, look good and last a long time.

Advantages of Modern UPVC & Composite Doors

Modern Double Glazed DoorsFirst and foremost, a new UPVC or composite front or back door will have some very good security features:

  • multi-point locks.
  • triple or quadruple stainless steel hinges.
  • 3 or 5 lever mortice locks
  • deadbolts

You can add spy holes and door chains to give that little extra.

Secondly, either of these materials will give an extensive lifespan to the door and at the same time keep the maintenance needs very low (just keep them clean). You can expect decades of excellent service.

Thirdly, the appearances of UPVC or composite doors (especially Bespoke Front Doors for Your Home) are second to none. UPVC can be found in up to 20 colours, as can Composites – the woodgrain finish on a composite door is something that really can make your doors look really classy & expensive.

Finally, but still importantly, modern double glazed doors are engineered to maximise energy efficiency. The weather proofing can keep out the worst of the elements (that the fickle UK  weather can throw at them) with ease. Insulating cores and double glazed units keep heat or cold transfer at bay. Draughty letter boxes & leaky frames are things of the past.

When all is said and done. with such a wide choice available, you just can’t really go wrong with a modern double glazed external door for your home. See designs, price guides and get free quotes from
