When it comes to installing or replacing doors in Essex, there is plenty of choice available. The most common types of materials used in doors are PVCu, timber or aluminium, and each of these has its own advantages. Other options you have are the style of door, as well as whether you want glazing and, if so, what type?
In Essex and the rest of the UK, doors don’t just offer us protection from intruders but also against the weather. Choosing doors that stand up to the wet climate is as important as how they look. PVCu, aluminium and timber are all good choices, but require different levels of maintenance. If you opt for glazing you also need to consider whether you want single or double glazing.
Materials for doors in Essex
As mentioned before, when choosing the material for your doors in Essex, the three most common are:
- Aluminium doors
- PVCu doors
- Timber doors
Aluminium doors are light-weight and durable, making them an increasingly popular choice. They are very resistant to wear and tear and so are easy to maintain. They also come in a variety of styles to suit all different types of modern homes, which gives you a lot of flexibility.
PVCu doors are very popular in Essex as they require almost no maintenance, even in our wet climate. All that is required is to occasionally wipe off any dust and dirt that has accumulated – what could be easier. These types of doors also come in various colours and styles and suit both modern and traditional homes.
Timber doors are the classic choice, especially for traditional or period homes, but they can also add character to modern homes. They do require a bit more maintenance than PVCu or aluminium doors, but advances in technology have made them much more durable and weather resistant, so they are still very popular. Different looks can be achieved by using different woods and stains.
Glazing for doors in Essex
Most front doors in Essex have some sort of glazing, with double glazing being the most common choice because of its superior insulation. Double glazing can make a big difference to the energy efficiency of your home by preventing as much heat loss as possible.
Whatever type of doors you choose for your home in Essex, you will also want to make sure they’re installed by a reputable supplier.
