Why buy contemporary external doors?

For those who have moved away from traditional raised panel front doors, contemporary external doors have a more pared down, simple look. Some have accentuated vertical and horizontal lines to make for stylish designer front doors.

Where modern front doors are glazed, the glazing is often offset or in bold individualistic patterns. Yet all are still beautifully crafted using the finest materials and modern engineered techniques. 

What contemporary front doors are available?

We have a range of contemporary external doors available, including contemporary composite front doors and a variety of wood options.

Our oak external doors are a solid 44mm thick construction. They have an engineered core of solid block and particleboard. This is then overlaid with the finest quality exterior oak veneers.

What colours are available?

We have a selection of colours on offer so you can choose the perfect options for your home, whether that’s a natural wood grain or a modern grey and other coloured contemporary front doors.

 

Benefits of an engineered door

Against traditional single timber doors, engineered external doors have a number of great benefits. Traditional timber doors will often warp, move and expand and contract in the weather, whereas contemporary composite front doors can be more resilient. 

External doors are particularly susceptible to having one internal warm face and another external cold face. The jointed single members in older doors will pull away from each other, trying to fill out the space available.

What gives strength to engineered modern front doors?

Engineered modern front doors are made up of various constituent parts bound together under extreme heat. 

This ‘core’ is then covered in high grade veneer. In this way the components of the door hold together to form a solid body which resists any movement, warping and expansion. 

Installation and care of your contemporary front door

Always employ a qualified joiner to install your new contemporary front doors. We recommend four hinges for external doors and good solid locking mechanisms. Also, your door should be hung in a sound fitting, hardwood, external grade frame. 

Contemporary external doors become immediately exposed to UV rays and the weather from the moment they are hung. 

How can contemporary composite front doors be protected?

All external doors need good quality weather-proof paints or treatments to preserve them through the extremes of the British climate.
