Your front door is the first thing guests see when they visit your home, which gives you all the more reason to choose the perfect one, reflecting your personal taste and complementing the overall style of your property. Looks aside, there are lots of other things you need to consider when choosing a new front door, such as security and thermal insulation. Here is our guide on what to consider when choosing a new front door.

Front Door Style

When looking for a new front door, with Safeguard you can choose between our composite doors and aluminium entrance doors. With this varied selection, you can choose the right door for your home, whether you’re after a modern entrance or a traditional aesthetic, you can select a door that showcases your personality.

Composite doors are perhaps the most popular choice for homeowners looking for a new front door, as they offer traditional style paired with strength, durability and efficiency to provide an all-round high quality door, available in a huge choice of designs.

Our aluminium entrance doors combine style with security to suit any modern property. Featuring a secure locking system and robust aluminium, they provide your home with the highest level of security protecting you from any unwanted entry. The thermally broken aluminium offers impressive energy efficiency along with strength and versatility. This way, you’re also protected from the great British weather. Available in any RAL colour, these doors can fit right in to the aesthetics of your home.

Front Door Design

Once you have chosen the style of your new front door, you can then get stuck into choosing your design options. You can select from a wide range of colours for all of our front doors so that you can create a bold entrance or opt for a more subtle colour to blend in with the rest of the exterior of your home. From classic black to mint turquoise, you’re spoilt for choice!

A stunning range of hardware is also available to choose from so you can add the perfect finishing touches to your new front door. With full design flexibility, you can select your letterbox, knockers, handles and other accessories to put your own stamp on your new front door. This way, you can fully showcase your personality to all of your guests.

For even more personalisation, you can choose from our selection of glass options. Whether you want standard double or triple glazing, or laminated glass for extra security, you can choose the glass to your liking.

Front Door Security

As well as adding visual appeal to your home, you want to be sure that your new front door acts as a barrier against any unwanted visitors. This is why keeping your home safe should be at the top of your agenda when looking for a new front door. Luckily for you, all of our doors are installed with Secured by Design hardware, along with multi-point locking systems. This offers the ultimate protection for your home so that you have complete peace of mind from when you leave in the morning for work, till you go to sleep.

Front Door Insulation

Energy efficiency is a vital feature you need to consider when looking for a new front door. Not only will it reduce your heating bill, but it will also lower your carbon footprint. Our composite doors feature glass reinforced plastic, which offers great thermal efficiency and weather resistance, meaning that your home will be protected from the elements whilst benefitting from superior insulation. This way, you prevent cold spots and draughts in your home, which keeps your home at an optimum temperature, so you don’t need to turn on the central heating full whack.
