The winter months can see a sharp drop in temperature. This affects the entrance to your home because cold air and draughts will enter your property. As a result, your home becomes colder and harder to live in. At Chigwell, we offer aluminium front doors to homeowners. At Chigwell, we have installed aluminium front doors for over 20 years, delivering a quick and efficient service. All our aluminium doors are made in house, showing careful attention to detail. The double or triple glazing is fitted inside the frames, so the heat won’t be able to escape.
Aluminium is one of the warmest materials on the market, but how will it enhance your home this winter? Read on to find out more.
One way to check your door’s warmth is to ensure that draughts can’t enter your home. If the door gets damaged over time, one way to check is to use a torch on the front and sides to see if light enters. Or, use a sheet of paper. If you can slide it through, this could be where the draught is coming from. Another way of checking if the doors are insulated correctly is if they sit in their frame properly. When you upgrade to one of Chigwell’s aluminium front doors, feel assured that the double glazing will prevent heat from escaping and cold air won’t be able to enter.
Alternatively, if you decide to upgrade to triple glazing for your home, this increases your energy efficiency further, delivering low U values. While double glazing harnesses more energy from the sun, triple glazing is stronger and durable. Add aluminium to the equation, and you get a strong, durable build.
With Christmas being a time for family, it is important to ensure that everyone is able to enter. Installing a low threshold on your door will ensure easier access for wheelchairs and prams. Furthermore, this is perfect for welcoming guests and visitors.
Our team fits the thresholds in a swift and easy fashion. This will make your life much easier, ensuring you will get a design that’s right for you.
We believe that security is one of the most important features of your home. The weather gets darker, making it harder for intruders to be seen. Thefts and burglaries increase during December because more people visit their family and friends during the holidays. Over time, your locks will get worn out, making it easier for intruders to break through. Replacing the locks will add plenty of sturdiness to your home.
Choosing an aluminium front door ensures it is one of the most secure builds on the market, with the double glazing protecting you from robust knocks. What’s more, secure your door further when you choose triple glazing, as it includes three panes of glass.
We want you to be able to customise your home easily. At Chigwell, we offer you many different styles and colours in abundance to personalise your aluminium front doors. A simple design change will add a splash of character to your home, giving it the wow factor. Help your property stand out from the neighbourhood. What’s more, consider an abundance of handles and knockers from traditional to contemporary, so there is something that suits your unique build.
If you plan on selling your home next year, upgrading to an aluminium door will increase your market value. An aluminium door will spruce up your home, creating a refreshing picture during the winter. The doors offer outstanding heat retention and soundproof capabilities, giving you or a potential buyer a warmer quieter home. It is ideal if you have a job where you work from home because you won’t get distracted by the outside noise.
