What are heritage doors?

Heritage doors are timber alternative doors, giving you the beauty of timber with the performance of modern uPVC. Looking after these doors is easy. Just like uPVC, they only require occasional cleaning to keep them at peak performance. Using modern techniques, they replicate the look of traditional joinery so you still get all the beauty of real timber.

We took all the qualities our customers were looking for and created the perfect all-round pleasing product. A door that possesses style, low maintenance, and energy-saving benefits. Weather-resistant and insulating, our range of heritage doors do more than just look good. They will keep your home safe against intrusion as well as keeping the warmth in.
