No comments

Deciding on a new door is not easy, especially when there’s plenty of great options to choose from. uPVC and composite doors are two of those fantastic options. Not convinced yet? Here’s why you can’t go wrong either of them:

uPVC Doors

Commonly found on homes for many years now, here’s what you can expect from a door constructed from uPVC:

  • Our uPVC doors are firmly sealed, ensuring they retain heat very well. This means they’ll save you considerable amounts on your energy bills.
  • Thanks to a range of stunning hardware, including handles and a number of different glass and colour options, uPVC doors look fantastic. Plus, they can be adapted to look just the way you’d like them to.
  • Renowned for it’s low maintenance qualities, a uPVC door will only require an occasional wipe down to continue looking great.
  • As uPVC is a highly durable material, a uPVC door will continue performing as it should for years.
  • Combining the sturdiness of uPVC with a high quality locking system, uPVC doors protect your home very well. Keep any would-be intruders at bay with a uPVC door.

Composite Doors

The combination of a number of high quality materials, composite doors have enjoyed a steady increase in popularity since their emergence on the market. Here’s what they offer you:

  • The finish on a composite door is of the highest quality. Combining this with beautiful glazing and hardware ensures for a door that achieves a stunning aesthetic.
  • Thanks to a Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) exterior, composite doors are heavily resistant to even the most severe weather conditions.
  • Our composites feature a foam core that is ultra-dense, which helps them to perform excellently in terms of thermal efficiency. And the better they perform in these terms, the lower your energy bills will be.
  • Composite doors are incredibly secure, making them ideal for protecting your home from potential intrusion. However, twin rebate composite doors, which have ‘Secured by Design’ accreditation are available, for those who are especially security conscious.
  • With a number of stunning styles and fantastic extras to choose from, composite doors are highly customisable.
  • Composite doors require very little maintenance to retain a quality finish. However, a guide on how to keep them looking their best is available here.

Spend money to save money

No comments

Naturally, we all try to save money wherever possible. After all, why would anyone want to spend more than they need too? However, this isn’t always the best course of action and often spending more can save you more money in the long run. This is clearly present in home improvement.  It is so easy to go for the cheaper options when buying things for your home, whether you are scrimping on replacing your light bulbs or sticking with those old, draughty single glazed windows, rather than replacing them with some energy efficient double or triple glazed windows.

How secure is your home?

No comments

Burglaries and break ins are more common now than they have been before, and this means that a number of people have found their homes have been broken into and their property stolen. At the end of 2017 burglary was the 5th most common crime in England and Wales, with over 35,000 burglaries being reported each month. Having someone break in can cause a huge amount of stress and worry, which is why it’s important to take measures to cut down on the chances of it happening. Despite home security systems and alarms being better than ever, burglars are still able to gain access. Often, this is through an unsecure access point or an unlocked window or door. Luckily, there are ways to ensure your home is as secure as possible.
