The Pros and Cons of a Wooden Door
Wood Front Doors:
Pros – When treated correctly exterior solid wooden doors, front doors and back doors can last far longer than any other type of door, some doors have been fitted and used for hundreds of years, they retain character and are beautiful to look at, with a natural texture. Wood can be adapted in size and repainted in different colours. Door furniture may be easily changed.
Cons – Wooden doors are vulnerable to the elements need to be treated and maintained and can be prone to twisting and warping. Cheap wooden doors can come apart at the joints and may rot if not sealed correctly. There are many cheap imports available and it’s tough to see the difference before it’s too late. Laminated or stabilised timber (small sections glued together) offer greater stability.
UPVc Front Doors :
Pros – uPVC front doors are low maintenance and require no painting or staining. They are well insulated, more stable than timber and usually come with multipoint locking systems and push bar systems that meet or exceed the secured by design initiative and Police Recommendations. UPVc doors can be designed to include additional glazing, panels and pet access.
Cons – Doors tend to have a ‘narrow’ appearance due to the thickness of the uPVC frame. It will be difficult or impossible to change the size or colour of a door once it has been fitted, or to change locks and door furniture with ease.
Pros – Composite front doors are made from a mixture of materials, such as glass fibre, which is pressed together and glued under high pressure. These are then clad in an outer skin which can be made to look like real wood but are far stronger, will not warp or require repainting. Virtually indistinguishable from wooden doors, they are highly insulated and are often supplied with multi point locks.
Cons – Composite doors tend to be more expensive than other options.
Pros: Aluminium Doors are usually fitted in the commercial sector and specified by architects as some options can offer extremely high levels of security, (at a cost) . Aluminium Doors are also used by homeowners as Back Doors, usually aluminium framed doors with glass panels to allow extra light.
Cons: Generally speaking, aluminium doors are less insulated and may be heavy, needing the frames to be recessed and fitted into the structure. An expensive option that is generally used for a purpose and little design alternatives.
