New door in Newcastle

Are you looking for a new door in Newcastle upon Tyne? Here are the Pros and Cons

When buying a new door you have a few options based on what would suit your requirements best. We have repaired and fitted new door in Newcastle and surrounding areas for over 8 years now and In this article we aim to help you get a better understanding of the options available to you so you can make the correct decision for you.

New door fitted Newcastle

UPVC Doors

This is a recent door we supplied and fitted in Newcastle. Our customer was had a budget to refurbish this property therefore required a cost effective door.

Pros: Cost effective – UPVC doors are normally lower in cost, market research we carried out shows sometimes as much as 50% cheaper than Composite or aluminium doors.

Stylish – There are a lot of designs available for UPVC doors from modern, traditional look and even different colours to suit your taste.

Reliable – We repair composite, UPVC , Wooden and aluminium doors regularly and would rate a UPVC door as the more reliable of the door options available.

Cons: Security – UPVC doors with full length panels inserted have a weakness, if enough pressure is applied the panel will push through.

Stylish? Although we previously stated that stylish was a pro factor of buying a UPVC door in relation to Composite doors there are less styles available due to the popularity of the composite doors.

New composite door in Newcastle
New door in Newcastle

Composite doors

Pros

Security-

Composite doors are made using a variety of materials uPVC, foam, wood, and GRP (glass reinforced plastic) creating a solid slab instead of the panel insert on a UPVC door, therefore making them incredibly secure.

Stylish – Composite doors are the modern alternative to the UPVC door so because of this the industry tends to focus on creating different designs and styles more frequently than the UPVC doors.

Cons

Costs – Composite doors are more expensive to purchase as opposed to UPVC doors, This may be down to the length of time they have been around. This might be something that changes when raw material costs are bought in scale or the amount of companies involved in manufacturing of the door slab itself increases or when demand plateaus.

Reliability – We have visited a lot of customers over the years with composite door issues and one of the main issues the customers have is the slab of the door catching on the frame. This is a result of heavy door being hung on a plastic frame putting to much pressure on the hinges or inadequate installation. In UPVC door installation the fitter has more room for adjustment with the lighter door and can adjust the inner door sash to accompany the outer frame with a technique known as Toeing and heeling. In a Composite door there is only the minimal hinge adjustment available and if the frame is not perfectly aligned the installation will suffer future problems. Hopefully with pioneering research and development in the near future their will be a lighter alternative available with the same security benefits.

Dodgy French doors

Our French windows handle had broken and Dan came out to have a look. Unfortunately he doesn’t deal with doors like ours as it’s very old and basically needs completely replacing. Dan did everything he could to secure it for us while we organise the replacement and he has recommended a colleague to do it for us. He also didn’t charge us for coming to have a look, which was very kind!
