Timber has always been the most popular choice of entrance door in Suffolk and beyond. But as more and more homeowners move away from traditional timber, in search of something a bit more modern, we find ourselves being asked the same question time and time again; which is the best type of entrance door for my South East home?
Largely dependent on the type of property and your individual needs, allow us to broaden your horizons and clarify the benefits of two of the most popular door materials around.
As the most recognisable alternative to the classic timber door, uPVC doors grace the front and rear entrances of many homes throughout the South East. Affordably secure, efficient and stylish, uPVC entrance doors remain a firm favourite with families confined to the strictest of budgets. Often referred to as a ‘set and forget’ front door solution due to its low-maintenance nature, uPVC doors’ unique multi-chambered frames achieve outstanding thermal ratings.
Aluminium entrance doors have always been a firm favourite within commercial projects for as long as we can remember, providing enviable strength, quality and slender sightlines. So, when homeowners need to heighten their home security alongside a touch of tasteful luxury and refinement, it’s of no surprise that they make a beeline for the alluring sightlines that the aluminium entrance door effortlessly delivers.
