As it’s National Home Security Month, we thought we’d share this latest case study as a prime example of how easy it is to improve your home security by upgrading your windows and doors with Global Windows this winter.
A modern renovation in Rotherham
Following a trip to our extensive Handsworth showroom, this customer was particularly impressed with the array of security features that our collection of composite doors and uPVC casement windows had to offer them.
Determined to revitalise the dated exterior of their property with a modern, secure alternative whilst retaining an air of timeless sincerity, an Anthracite Grey finish fit the bill perfectly.
Old timber door vs brand new composite door; no contest!
Anthracite grey on white uPVC windows – Less frames, more glass
As well as heightened home security benefits, it’s clear to see that the inclusion of ‘A’ rated uPVC frames have vastly enhanced this home’s natural light intake; literally giving the whole family a brighter outlook on life for many enjoyable years to come!
Composite doors vs wooden doors
One of the main reasons behind this homeowner’s choice was the fact that the original wooden door only had one main locking system in place – leaving their home vulnerable to the very real possibility of forced entry via lock drilling burglary techniques. Offering a solid 70mm wide profile, the inclusion of the ultra-secure Ultion Brisant cylinder lock as standard really captured this customers attention; providing technologically advanced anti-snap and anti-drill capabilities.
More reasons to replace your wood front door with a protective composite door
Composite doors work out as a much more worthwhile, long term investment in comparison to wooden doors, due to the extent of the ongoing maintenance that’s required to keep a timber door performing at its very best, e.g. re-painting, re-varnishing, restoration. Failing to properly upkeep timber doors can result in warping, peeling or swelling, which seriously impacts upon the security and efficiency of the door – inevitably meaning more money needs to be spent to fix it. Due to the way composite doors are made, there’s no need to worry about it warping, swelling, peeling or discolouring over time.
As previously mentioned, wooden doors require constant attention to retain their defensive qualities and classic charm. Composite doors simply need a swift oil of the hinges and a quick wipe over with soapy water and a lint-free cloth every now and then to retain its beauty.
- Life Expectancy
Timber doors can technically last a lifetime, but this depends on the weather conditions they’re exposed to and regular preservation. Composite doors can truly last a lifetime, delivering the least amount of hassle and the utmost peace of mind.
