What are Different Types of Exterior Doors for Your Home?
If you are looking for an exterior door for the front, back or side of your house, there are a good number of options.
The market for house doors is very competitive in terms of styles, material & prices – here are some options to look at.
Front & Back Doors
in terms of material you can get the following:
- engineered wood
The most expensive would be composite, bespoke hardwood & aluminium. These front & back doors can cost over £1,000 fitted. The cheapest are softwood & upvc. Softwood exterior doors can wear out quickly if you don’t look after them well.
Patio Door Options
if you are thinking of patio door options then consider these designs:
- french doors – see more here: french-patiodoors.co.uk/french-doors
- bifold doors
- sliding doors
- tilt / turn or tilt / slide
They are also available in the same materials as front & bock doors. In terms of pricing for material used then it’s basically the same as for front & back doors. In terms of design, then bifold doors are the most expensive.
Our recommendation is that you get 3 or 4 quotes from different companies so that you can know where the best deals are to be found.
