Your front door is not only the main entrance and focal point of the front of your property, but it’s one of the main defences against intruders and burglaries. When you’re looking for a new front door, or any exterior door for your home, one of the most important things to consider is how secure it will make your home and how much of a deterrent it will be. With so many types of wooden front doors on the market, it can be difficult to understand what you should be looking for and what the best style is for your home.

When investing in your home, you want to make sure that your purchases are worth the money spent. Wooden front doors will last up to as long as 60 years, thanks to the inherently strong material being able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life for years to come. This adds to the security of your home, as you can have the confidence that your doors will last for many years to come, without any potential damage from daily use that could have an impact on the safety of your entrance.

When choosing a wooden front door, there’s no compromise on security. With modern security features included in the door, there’s no need to worry about if your new door will keep you safe as well as creating a stunning statement for any property.

Wooden front doors offer impressive strength and are one of the few door materials that can be repaired, as wood is malleable and easy to work with. This means a wooden front door will offer you and your home great security during its long life. As well as the wood itself being safe and secure, our wooden front doors are finished to the highest specifications to ensure your home remains protected.

The tech stuff

We use a multipoint locking system on all of our doors as standard and they are supplied in their own frame to ensure the highest levels of security. A multipoint locking system has three different bolts that come out of three different points of the door to lock and secure it in place. To lock these all in position, you simply pull up the lever on the door up and all the bolts are engaged, securing the door in place. Thanks to the frame being included with your new wooden door, you don’t have to worry about any extra safety features as it all comes as standard.
