Types Of Front Doors

Bespoke Front Doors London

Your home’s entrance door is pivotal to the first impressions your London residence generates. For this reason, we allow our customers to select from various styles and finishes for front doors we are able to design and manufacture to bespoke, customer-approved specifications.

Whether your property is of modern or traditional styling, we can provide it with an entrance door to suit. We supply made-to-measure front doors integrated with an array of high-performance components and stringent security mechanisms. 

Our entrance door installation services are also available to households in Essex, which lies just outside London. Our end-to-end service will see our joiners make your door from scratch before it is offloaded to our installation team, who will carefully fit it at your home.

As this front door will be bespoke and handmade, it will fit perfectly where it is intended – and, in the process, revitalise the appearance of your residential property while reinforcing its security.

Timber Front Doors London

One of the major selling points of timber, when used in doors, is its pleasing traditional appearance, as also seen in our timber window designs. Timber is also easy to carve, making it an appropriate “canvas” for the “art” that could be the next entrance door installed at your home. 

The many styles in which we offer timber front doors include classic, time-honoured designs. Our heritage range, meanwhile, takes inspiration from the period properties of various bygone eras – including the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Our timber doors deliver excellent thermal efficiency, even when fully glazed to let natural light abundantly enter the room. In using strengthened timber for these doors and equipping them with reliable locking mechanisms, we can also help you to enhance your domestic security.

The high durability of the wood we use for timber entrance doors helps to prevent them from picking up damage in high-traffic areas – and we can paint, stain or varnish these doors to satisfy our clients’ preferences.

Composite Front Doors

Composite doors are so-called as they combine various carefully-selected materials, such as wood, uPVC and GRP, to form a door that delivers in both appearance and strength. The long-term reliability of these doors means they can effectively pay for themselves.

Another compelling benefit of composite doors is that, naturally, the more materials you include in the mix, the more easily you can customise the door in style and functionality and thus get everything you require from a front door.

While composite doors are very contemporary in their structure, they don’t strictly have to be in their look – as particularly attested by the Victorian-style composite doors we offer. These can go well with original Victorian homes as well as imbue modern properties with a tinge of heritage class.

As your new composite front door takes shape on paper and subsequently in our workshop, you will be able to continually advise us on how the doors should look. Under your instructions, our team can make sure they give you a door that meets the right criteria.

  • Establish easy access to your patio or garden
  • Blur the boundary between an indoor and outdoor space
  • Let fresh air easily flow into your home

Composite sliding doors are wonderfully simple to open and close, and can be fitted with security features of highly trusted standards.

You can start simply by calling us on 0203 795 5169, as we can hold free consultations over the phone. Once we have held a consultation with you, here are the next few stages we will ask you to follow if you remain eager to benefit from our front or entrance door installation service.

  • Arrange for us to pay a free visit to your home
  • Consider the specific door solution we recommend for you
  • Decide whether or not to accept the quote we offer
  • Assuming you do accept the quote, let us carry out an architectural survey

We provide guarantees depending on the materials used in the doors we design, manufacture and fit. Here are examples of materials which we use in front and entrance doors and thus are each provided with a 10-year guarantee from our team:

  • uPVC
  • Timber
  • Glazing

Each installation we undertake will also come with a FENSA certificate. This is a certificate we issue to confirm that the installation work was professional, energy-efficient and in adherence to relevant building regulations. Our About page outlines the guarantees and certification we offer.

Thankfully, yes. We have served many clients happy to present their Vintage Sash-provided doors to other people who are seriously considering having the same kind of thing installed – and you can arrange to see these doors up close if you get in touch with us.

You can do that by dialling 0203 795 5169 or sending an email to info@vintagesash.co.uk. We would also urge you to keep an eye on the case studies we publish on our website, as these case studies go into detail about selected projects our team has overseen in the past. 

In terms of upfront cost, we would say timber doors. However, you should consider not just the initial outlay but also what you would have to spend on maintaining the door in the long run.

This is where timber doors can falter compared to composite doors, as doors primarily comprising timber are vulnerable to twisting, warping, expanding and shrinking. It would also be necessary for these timber doors to be regularly painted or stained in order for their appearance to be preserved.

Hence, composite doors can actually work out cheaper than predominantly timber doors once maintenance costs are factored in.
