What to consider when buying an external door

Choosing an external door to your home is highly important, not only does it provide a warm welcome into your home, but it is also a security against people who you do not particularly wish to enter.

How can you choose the right door?

The first and foremost factor that you have to consider whilst choosing an external door is of course the security that it provides for your home.

Although nowadays many doors are made from PVC and they are in themselves pretty full proof when it comes to security, quite often traditional external doors such as wooden doors can also offer a force against intruders.

Wooden doors have been used for thousands of years as barriers from the outside world, whether they are doors for huts, or grand gates for the largest of castles, there’s no doubt that not only can they endure the outside world, but also the test of time.

Thanks to both their sturdiness and heaviness, wooden doors make for perfect external doors and can last for decades; offering you security for many happy years to come.

But kind of door will suit the exterior of my house?

Like many things in life, style is everything and if you mix and match your front door, your exterior house styling may look a little untidy.

It is therefore important that you must also consider the stylistic properties of your home and think about what door would suit it. For example, even things such as matching the colour of your windowsills will make a difference when choosing the correct door for your home; getting it right is imperative.

For example, if you are privileged enough to live in the beauty of the countryside, you may be more than inclined to go for a heavy wooden door rather than one of PVC, which is more popular in suburbia.

Wooden doors in the countryside are not only popular for their ability to keep the outside world at bay, including the weather, but also because they are one of the most traditional and natural materials around.
