Are wooden front doors secure?

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.

Wooden front door durability

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.

Wooden front doors offer safety and security

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.

I would be happy to recommend Bailey Hague to anyone. Rob, Susie and team have done an excellent job from start to finish on our doors and windows. They genuinely care about providing an excellent end to end experience. Great products, great installation and a very fair price. We have just placed a further order which says it all really about how we feel.

Highly recommend this company. The installation of our door was carried out quickly and efficiently. The end result is fabulous - a bespoke, made to measure door exactly as we wanted. The follow up service was excellent, including a call from Rob to check all was in order and Susie checking in on the day of installation to ensure all was well. Fantastic. Very happy.

From Start to finish Robert and his team have been fantastic. Designing and fitting our front and back door and curved windows and French doors for the kitchen extension. The results speak for themselves, beautiful workmanship and they went above and beyond to get the finished (slightly tricky!) look we desired. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending to friends and family and using them again.

We looked at hundreds of front doors before finding Bailey Hague. We wanted a door that would look great and last for years. Right from first contact, Bailey Hague impressed. We could see from all their 5 star reviews that they'd be able to deliver the quality we wanted. From initial quote through to installation, their customer service and attention to detail has been exceptional. Highly recommended!

Thanks to Rob and the team we now have a beautiful new back door, bringing light to the hallway and much needed draughtproofing too. Communication (mostly Susie) was prompt, friendly and helpful from start to finish. Design, construction and workmanship (including Andy, the perfectionist fitter) are all excellent. And the price was very competitive. Five stars and an unreserved recommendation.

An excellent company to deal with, creating a bespoke door and window which maintain the heritage of the house. Susie, Robert and the team of guys fitting them were helpful and accommodating from start to finish - so pleased with their service and the lovely door and window they fitted. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

The two owners and the Joiners are fabulous. We have been trying to a buy a door for 2.5 years: we took one to small claims court, 3 provided quotes and then changed their minds.Bailey Hague turned up when they said they would to measure up, provided a quote, a start date and then delivered.The Joiner who fitted the door was a delight; turning up when they said he would and we now have a new door.Really easy

Susie, Rob and all the team were brilliant to work with. Super fast response from initial contact to finishing the first part of our project. No amendment to the design was a problem and dealt with quickly. The quality of the windows and doors are fantastic and they don’t just look good from the outside, the finished joinery on the inside is the icing on the cake. Our old cottage now looks like it should! Thank you 😊
