By PVCu residential doors, we are referring to the standard front or rear access doors to your home.
Whilst most householders would install a fairly plain but functional rear access door, a stylish PVCu or composite door, is the perfect way to make an entrance and a warm welcome at the front of your home. Well specified and properly installed double glazed PVCu residential doors can offer style with security.
In most situations PVCu residential doors to the rear of your home will lead into the kitchen and will generally be half glazed with a solid panel in the bottom half and clear or obscure glass in the top half to provide maximum light into a working kitchen.
Where existing windows don’t offer sufficient ventilation in a kitchen, PVCu residential doors designed as stable doors should be considered. There are several ways of manufacturing these and it is an ideal way of creating extra ventilation whilst leaving the door closed to keep children indoors and pets outside for example.
PVCu residential doors as front doors however, often with a combination of side panels and / or fanlights are generally more ornate to create a feature entrance. They are often specified with less glass than a rear door in order to provide more privacy from the public highway but this shouldn’t be at the expense of a darkened hallway.
