What Different Doors Say About Your Home

28 Jul 2022

Your front door is one of the first things visitors see. Before your windows, curtains, or the colour of your lawn, people notice your front door and judge it. If your door is dirty, people think the rest of your home is dirty. The same is true if your door is clean, new, or old. 

It’s a stressful fact. But you can use it to your advantage. By picking the right door, you can create an impression of yourself that you are comfortable with. 

To give you an idea of just what impressions various doors create, C&W Direct have put together this great article. Continue below to discover some associations that people have with different types of doors available from C&W Direct today.

uPVC Doors

uPVC, also known as Un-plasticised Polyvinyl Chloride, is a high-quality building material designed as a stand-in for traditional wood. But while uPVC looks great, it’s also relatively cheap. These two characteristics make it an excellent choice for the consumer looking for a great front door on a budget. At the same time, uPVC doors give off a neo-classical aesthetic — making them a great choice for people who like the look of traditional doors. 

Whether the door has been finished in faux wood or left white, uPVC doors are normally manufactured in designs similar to traditional doors. This gives homes a feeling of being much older than they actually are. Many people enjoy this aesthetic, as it gives their homes a rustic feeling. 

Composite Doors

Generally speaking, if uPVC doors are the doors for people looking to maintain a hint of neo-classical styling, composite doors are for people looking to the future.

In contrast to uPVC doors, composite doors are made of a composite of both traditional and non-traditional materials. Its exterior is usually made of fibreglass – an incredibly strong which gained fame thanks to its use in sports cars and military fighter jets. Under this layer is a uPVC skeleton that has been connected to a hardwood frame. At the heart of the entire door is a polyurethane foam core – an excellent material for increasing the thermal efficiency of your door. Over this complex interior is an outer frame constructed from incredibly sturdy 70mm uPVC and steel.

As you can imagine, composite doors are both incredibly sturdy and energy efficient — far more than traditional doors and arguably even more so than their uPVC equivalents. This makes them ideal for customers looking for the strongest and most energy-efficient doors available on the market. 

At the same time, the fact that composite doors are available in both classical and modern styling only further increases the number of people who may choose composite doors over uPVC doors.
