The days are beginning to close in and soon it’ll be time to put the clocks back, and although we’re still getting some lovely, bright days, winter is definitely on the way. That means dropping temperatures, even more rain than we usually get in the good old British summer, and the kind of weather that has you wanting to huddle on the sofa in front of the fire and hibernate until Spring.
Another side effect of the lower temperatures and less daylight is rising heating bills but, while we can’t magically make the days lighter and longer for you, we can help you out with your heating bill.
The way composite doors are built means that they have very good insulation properties, and that means that they can keep the heat in your home where it belongs, stop drafts from getting in and lowering the temperature so you need to keep turning the heating up, and generally keep your home toastier. In fact, our composite doors are around six times more effective at insulating than a standard wooden door. All of which means you don’t need to spend as much on your heating bill this winter. And you can reduce your carbon footprint!
With winter weather, there’s usually a lot of mud, dirt, leaves and grime swirling about, and of course, the outsides of your front and back doors are likely to get dirty.
With a wooden door, all that abrasive dirt can scour off the varnish, leaving you with a nice repainting job come the summer. And your door can start to look worn and old due to the damage.
A composite door, on the other hand, is a breeze to keep clean and fresh looking. No matter how much mud gets thrown against your door, all you need to do is give it a wipe down with some hot soapy water and a good cloth and it’ll look like new again.
The longer, dark nights are, unfortunately, perfect for burglars, but with a new composite door, you’ll feel secure in your home. Composite doors are very solidly made and, unlike cheaper plastic doors, they can’t easily be kicked in or damaged. And we can offer upgraded locks, security glass, door chains and spy holes to add to your peace of mind.
