This past year, homeowners in Britain have spent more time than ever before in their homes. Despite its many restrictions, lockdown has actually presented homeowners with an opportunity to make those home improvements they may have been putting off. Being in our homes more often has also helped homeowners realise there may be improvements that need to be made; whether that’s to make their home more comfortable and pleasant to live in, to increase the value, or both!
Replacement doors from Global
If you’re looking for an effective way to upgrade your South Yorkshire property, a replacement door from Global is guaranteed to improve the appearance and value of your home. Whether you want a new front door or a wide opening entrance to your garden or patio area; Global Windows have got you covered. From ultra-secure composite doors to sleek and attractive bi-fold doors; with Global Windows, every new door installation is a successful one.
Once a decision has been made to take the route of installing a new door, it can be frustrating to discover the majority of double-glazing specialists out there don’t generally put a specific price on UK door cost. Allow us to explain why.
DOOR COST: MATERIAL CHOICE
The cost of new doors is largely influenced by the type of material they’re made from. There are four main choices of door material to consider:
Composite: Composite doors are fast becoming the front door of choice for South Yorkshire homeowners. Using an intelligent combination of materials, like a solid core and a GRP (glass reinforced plastic) skin, composite doors provide homeowners with unparalleled benefits. It comes as no surprise that more and more people are choosing composite doors. Composite doors are often a more expensive front door choice; however, you’ll see a return on investment larger than if you opt for another style of front door.
uPVC: uPVC is well-known as the most affordable door material thanks to it being relatively cheap to produce. Not only is uPVC the most affordable door material option, but it also comes with a multitude of very attractive benefits. uPVC is virtually maintenance-free, extremely energy efficient, and comes in a huge variety of colours and finishes. You can even have wood effect uPVC doors! This unique option provides your uPVC door with a sense of tradition in making it appear like a timber door, but with the modern benefits of uPVC.
Aluminium: Here at Global we offer both aluminium bifolding doors and sliding patio doors. Aluminium is inherently strong meaning it can hold large panes of glazing within slim sightlines, offering nearly uninterrupted views of your garden. Aluminium doors are sure to add value to your home and we have different styles to suit different budgets including The Forge range and Schüco premium bifold doors.
Timber: Wooden doors have the highest price tag due to the specialist installation process involved, their high energy efficiency, and long-lasting qualities, adding around 50%-100% to the cost.
DOOR COST: SIZE
Generally speaking, the more replacement doors you need installing, and the bigger the size of the doors, the more expensive the installation will be. If your home requires bespoke or made-to-measure doors, this will also add to the overall cost.
DOOR COST: STYLE
Different door styles require different amounts of skill, time, and effort to install. Whether you live in a modern new build property or an older, more traditional home; our extensive door range is sure to include a style that will perfectly complement your home’s design.

DOOR COST: OTHER FACTORS TO CONSIDER
Other factors that can affect the price of replacement doors include:
- The type of building or area e.g. buildings located in conservation areas.
- Additional features such as accessories, hardware, and sidelights, or security upgrades such high-security handles, wipe clean keyholes, anti-snap and anti-drill locking mechanisms, deadlocks, night latches, anti-lift technology, smart locks, and anti-jemmy hinges.
- Colour/finish upgrades e.g. coloured uPVC frames/woodgrain effects.
- Upgrading to triple glazing (where possible) for further energy efficiency, thermal efficiency, and security.
