The front doors, back doors and patio doors (e.g French doors and bifolding doors) we sell at our Witney showroom can be made from a variety of materials. From composite doors and uPVC doors to aluminium bifold doors, each has its own distinct characteristics. On this page, we’ve looked to explain a little more about each one, to help you choose the perfect product to suit your requirements. Keep in mind that we also supply and install uPVC windows, double glazing and conservatories – our expansive product range and versatility are two of the reasons why we’re so well known throughout Witney and wider Oxfordshire.
uPVC Doors & uPVC Windows
Front doors, back doors, patio doors (including French doors and bifolding doors) can all be made from uPVC, as can windows. uPVC doors and uPVC windows are both known for being highly affordable and low-maintenance, and the go-to material for conservatories. These products can be bought in all sorts of colours, with white being the most popular. These are a great option if you are building an extension or renovating your Witney home on a strict budget. When combined with quality double glazing, they can help save you money on your heating bills.
A slightly more expensive option for your front doors and back doors is composite. This material, which you can find out more about on our Composite Doors page, is known for being extremely durable and thermally efficient. They also offer a luxury aesthetic that can add significant curb appeal to a Witney property. Composite can be used for front doors, back doors, patio doors (French doors) – whatever you’d like.
Timber is still often used for front doors, back doors, patio doors and windows – despite uPVC doors / composite doors / uPVC windows being seen as more modern options. They best suit traditional Witney properties which feature many natural materials and a more “rustic” aesthetic. They can come in both hardwood and softwood varieties.
While timber front doors and back doors can look fantastic, they do require regular maintenance – re-varnishing and staining, for example. They’re strong and can be painted or laminated, so should definitely be considered by Witney clients looking for a certain look, who are willing to maintain them as time goes by.
Aluminium Bifold Doors
The most popular material for bifolding doors (often employed as patio doors) is aluminium. Aluminium bifold doors are completely unaffected by many issues that plague timber patio / French doors, like warping and twisting. They are also lightweight and extremely strong.
This strength allows for a slim profile, which will suit the vast majority of Witney homes. But they aren’t just durable, being highly thermally efficient (when fitted out with double glazing) and customisable. You can have your aluminium patio doors powder coated in all sorts of colours, allowing you to match them to your home’s colour scheme. For all these reason and more, aluminium bifold doors are an all-round champion when it comes to patio doors.
So if you’re interested in purchasing any of the products mentioned above, give our Witney showroom a call or pay us a visit. Our range of front doors, back doors, patio doors and uPVC windows is an impressive sight to behold.
