Why You Should Invest in New Doors for Your Home


Your front door is one of the most important features of your home and one that does need to be replaced from time to time. They have a dual purpose of inviting in those we know and keeping out those we don’t. Good doors also work in a similar way – attracting the attention of neighbours and buyers while deterring potential burglars because the front door remains one of the most common points of entry for intruders. In this blog we will be discussing some of the main reasons why you should invest in a new door before the winter months roll in.


Keep The Weather Out


At Durham Design, we know how quickly the weather in the UK can change. When the rain comes and begins to hit your front door with force, you need it to provide protection from the elements. With Durham Design, the inside of your home will remain dry and energy efficient no matter how bad theweather becomes.


Increase Security


The main purpose of a front door is to protect the home at which it is installed. In winter, the burglary rate increases by a staggering 35% meaning that your home is more at risk. Another striking statistic is that 74% of burglars enter via the front door! Now is definitely the best time to consider upgrading your door.

Improve Your Home’s Appearance


In addition to the security and peace of mind that a new door offers, it is also a great way to add a new aesthetic layer to your home. The front door is often the first thing visitors will notice when arriving at your home so it is important to create a good impression.
