Replacing An Exterior Door

Replacing An Exterior Door

Does your home need a new exterior door? If yours is past its best, is letting in draughts, is no longer secure or is just unattractive and old, it’s definitely time to consider investing in a replacement. However, replacing an exterior door may not be as easy as you first imagined. There are a few things that you’ll need to keep in mind when making your final decision about the right door for you. Here, we take a closer look at the process and what you need to consider when making your choice.

How Is An Exterior Door Replaced?

Replacing your exterior door isn’t a complex job for a professional. The process involves the opening being accurately measured before the door is ordered. The old door and door frame will then be removed and the new door frame secured in place. This will include the fixing to the walls and filling any gaps between the wall and frame. The new door is then attached to it’s new door frame.

How Long Will Replacing An Exterior Door Take?

Usually, it will only take an experienced professional a couple of hours to replace your exterior door, although if security devices or doorbells have to be fitted it may take a little longer.

Choosing The Right Options

When it comes to choosing the right hardware and furniture for your door, there are no shortage of options to pick from. Whether you’re looking for a traditional or modern aesthetic, you’re sure to find something that perfectly matches your preferences. Choose from black, pewter, brass, chrome, white, gold or bronze finishes in a variety of styles to suit your needs. With letter plates, levers and pads, cabin hooks, door pulls, letters, numbers, knockers and hinge fronts available in a range of materials and colours, it couldn’t be easier to achieve the ideal look for your home.

Things To Consider

When you’re choosing your new exterior door, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Material – uPVC and composite doors are strong and customisable. They need minimal maintenance and won’t rot or warp. Composite doors are especially secure and have an authentic-looking wood finish. Meanwhile timber doors are a traditional choice, although not as secure as a composite or uPVC door.
  • Glazing options – if you’re choosing an exterior door that includes glass, you can create different looks for your home depending on the glazing options you select. Choose from frosted, tinted, patterned or clear glass in double or triple glazed formats.
  • Security – all the doors that Evolution provide conform to British standards and have cutting-edge security features and locks to ensure maximum safety for your home.
