Identify The Style Of Your Door.
Homeowners may not be aware of the type of door installed on their property. Because new homeowners did not choose the door, a door would more than likely have been installed previously.
When choosing to upgrade the new doors you may ask yourself, what kind of door would you like?. Sometimes it is not an easy question to answer.
Take a look at these simple styles and design to help identify the type of door you currently have.
The Front Door.
The front door is at the entrance to your home. It is the part in which people approach to enter your home. It is also very important for the door to make a good impression on visitors.
Some side doors are also entrance doors as well. However, many homeowners are not as concerned with how they look as they can often unseen.
Because of the house age, it may dictate whether or not you have installed a traditional door or a contemporary styled door. However, because more than 67% of intruders go to the front door it is always best to have a secure front door.
With the front door being in use most of the time, you will need to make sure to use a good quality material and design. Double glazed and triple glazed options are available on front doors using materials such as uPVC, aluminium, composite and timber.
