Composite doors are so named because they combine a traditional timber core with a high-density foam to ensure they are both highly secure and well insulated. The core is covered with a scratch-resistant Glass Resistant Plastic (GRP) skin, which typically features a wood grain effect. To make it so that property owners don’t have to repaint their doors, the GRP is coloured all the way through. The plastic covering also makes the door immune to issues like weathering/warping.
Maintaining composite doors is simply a case of wiping them down with a damp cloth to remove dirt. This modern-day technical marvel represents the very best in external doors that D&M Home Improvements provide. They are extremely popular with customers from North Wales, because of the added cosiness the foam insulation brings to their home. Composite doors are also fully customisable. Attainable in a variety of styles, colours and customisable via different sorts of glass panes, you can match your home entrance to the décor of your hallway.
uPVC stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, and over the past few years it has become the undoubted number one choice for window frames, recommended by the biggest double glazing companies. Its advantages over competitors such as aluminium and timber are multiple, and we’ve listed just a few below:
• Value for money – uPVC is by far the most cost-effective material on the market
• Low maintenance – It never rots, flakes, rusts or fades; just wipe with a damp cloth
• Durability – Strong, tough and resilient, it is highly unlikely uPVC will need changing
• Security – It is incredibly hardy, making it difficult to damage or break
• Insulation – uPVC provides the best heat and energy insulation available
While its only “downside” may be its aesthetic value, the many reasons listed above outweigh uPVC’s plainness. Many North Wales customers considering new windows as part of their home improvements use uPVC frames, prizing added insulation in the cold Welsh winters!
In recent decades, old-fashioned French windows have been surpassed by a more versatile option – bi folding doors. This agile piece of home improvement design combines high performance with good looks, and brings a range of benefits to your home. Where a French window will only partially open up a section of full-length glazing, bi folding doors open fully due to their concertina design. Bi folding doors are a superb way to bring the outdoors in, and you can have exterior space functioning as an additional “room” in your North Wales home, flowing from the interior.
Traffic doors, at one end of the bifold, open like a traditional door, allowing use of bi folding doors during the colder months without having to push all the panels back. They also work beautifully when closed, offering landscape views of the outside and pulling in lots of light, thanks to their full height and width glazing. Customisable and elegant, it’s little wonder bi folding doors are used constantly on TV shows like Grand Designs.
