Exterior Door FAQs

Do I need planning permission to change my front door?

Replacing a front door will not require planning permission. It is always worth checking with the local authority to double check. Sometimes there are covenants that state what you can and cannot do with the exterior of your home.

What should I look for when buying an exterior door?

When buying a new front or back exterior door you need to look at three key points. The door should be energy efficient so that it keeps any warm air in your home and doesn't let cold air in. An exterior door should also be secure and safe to give you peace of mind that you are deterring intruders. Aesthetics are the third consideration, exterior doors add character to a home and you will see it every day so make sure you get the colour and style you will be the happiest with.

How do I choose the right door?

To choose the right front door you can call or visit our showroom and speak to an expert who will listen to your requirements and advise you on what would work best. You can also use our online door designer and play around with all the styles and options we have.

When should I replace my exterior door?

  • Energy bills are going up - If you feel a draught from your front door this means it's not doing its job of keeping the heat in your home this can mean you spend more money on heating.
  • You can see gaps around the door -  This will also mean that heat is leaking from your home. A door with gaps will also reduce the security of your home.
  • The lock isn't working smoothly - If the lock on the door isn't locking properly or if it's hard to lock and unlock this could mean the locking mechanism is compromised. This is a security risk. Replacing this door will secure your home.
  • Your door is damaged in some other way - General damage can have a triple effect. It can reduce the security of the door, cost you more in energy bills and make your home look run down.

Are front and back doors the same?

Broadly, front and back doors are the same as they require the same features. They both need to provide security for the entrances to your home. They also need to keep the warmth in your home to keep your heating bills under control. However, there is a bigger range of back door styles when compared to front doors. For example, styles such as sliding patio doors and bifold doors are generally only going to be suited to being designed as back doors.
