uPVC doors are the product of choice for most residential customers but they don’t just have to be white – there is a wide range of different woodgrain finishes available including mahogany, rosewood and light oak effects.
If you are considering a hardwood door quote, good quality hardwood is generally the most expensive product used but it is also considered by some to offer the best in terms of appearance.
The availability of some poor quality hardwood has ruined this argument in recent years however, and although many traditionalists would never contemplate anything other than hardwood, uPVC has many advantages, not least cost and ease of maintenance.
A composite door is manufactured with moulded GRP (glass reinforced polyester) outer skins which have a realistic hardwood grain. They are available in a wide range of colours and never need painting. Composites are fast becoming the number one choice in the UK.
If you are looking for an aluminium door quote, you should expect them to be expensive, partly due to the fact that they are normally fitted within hardwood sub-frames, and they are not usually as energy efficient as uPVC can be.
Aluminium frames are generally more appropriate for commercial installations such as shop fronts and other business premises than for use in residential properties.
Add to that the ever expanding range of decorative glass features such as Georgian bar, Astragal bar, coloured lead patterns and bevelled glass and there are offer millions of combinations door combinations to suit every home
