Why buy glazed exterior doors?
Glazed doors are popular because they allow natural light into your home. This can make a noticeable difference in making spaces appear more welcoming and spacious, especially in parts of the house that don’t benefit from windows, such as corridors.
By choosing a glazed front door, you will also have the added advantage of seeing when someone knocks. And with the thickness of the door and glazing, you won’t compromise any security.
Benefits of an Engineered Glazed 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. External doors are particularly susceptible, having one internal warm face and another external cold face. The jointed single members will pull away from each other, trying to fill out the space available.
Engineered doors however, 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 exterior glazed doors
Always employ a qualified joiner to install your new door. 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.
Your external door becomes immediately exposed to UV rays and the weather from the moment it is hung. All external doors need good quality weather-proof paints or treatments to preserve them through the extremes of the British climate.
