The days are closing in earlier and the weather is chillier. That, of course, means only one thing; it’s Winter.
Whilst Winter has its positives, dropping temperature and even more rain can make you wish that you could just hibernate away until Spring rolls around once more.
However, should you find yourself in the market for a new front door, it might be time to invest in a composite door. Make sure to read on below, for our guide on the many benefits that a composite door has to offer you, written in collaboration with Chase Garage Doors, leading suppliers of Composite Doors Rugeley.
Lower Your Heating Bills
Lower temperatures and less daylight leads to rising heating bills. Whilst, even though we wish we could, we can’t magic the days lighter and longer, we can help you to lower your heating bills.
A composite door is designed to have outstanding insulation properties, so therefore they keep the heat within your home and stop drafts from getting in. This means that you will no longer have to keep turning up heating up and that your home will be all round much cosier.
Not only will you save yourself money, you’ll also reduce your carbon footprint!
Easy to Maintain
During the Winter months, the last thing you want to be thinking about is having to brave the cold, wet weather outside to sit scrubbing at and painting your door. What’s more, during the Winter, your front door will likely get much dirtier than during any other month thanks to all of the mud, dirt and leaves being blown about.
A wooden door will be affected by this. Abrasive dirt scrubs off varnish, leaving you with a repainting job in the summer and the door very quickly starts to look worn and old.
On the other hand, a composite door will be easy to maintain. No matter how much dirt, mud and grime gets thrown at it, all you’ll need to do is wipe it down with warm soapy water and a soft cloth and before you know it you’ll have a door that looks as good as new once more!
Much Better Security
Longer, darker nights are unfortunately a perfect opportunity for burglars and other intruders. However, when you choose to purchase a new composite door, you’ll be able to feel much more secure in your home.
Composite doors are exceptionally made from very solid materials, and unlike much cheaper plastic doors on the market, they can’t easily be kicked in or weakened.
What’s more, many composite door manufacturers will be able to include upgraded locks, security glass, door chains and spy holes in your new door, simply for your added peace of mind.
Improve Your Properties Appearance
If there’s one thing for sure, updating your front door during the winter can make a huge difference to the overall look of your home. This is especially the case if your old door looks noticeably tired.
Composite doors come in a huge range of designs and colours, so you can create the perfect distinctive look for your home.
Finally, what’s more, your home will look brilliant when summer rolls around, so that’ll be one less thing on your list!
