Aluminium doors

Are you looking for a new front door for your Gloucester home?

For Gloucester homeowners looking to replace their front door, it can be difficult to know where to begin as there is such a comprehensive choice of styles and materials available.

Upgrading your front door is a brilliant way to increase kerb appeal and saleability, whilst giving the exterior of your home a makeover, with minimal work involved. With over 64% of homeowners in Cheltenham and 68% of homeowners in Gloucestershire either owning their home outright or with a mortgage in place, property owners want to review, maintain and restyle their home more often than you would think.

First and foremost, when selecting a new front door, most of us want it to be aesthetically appealing, maintenance free, energy efficient, and secure at the very least. We are proud to say our range of front doors covers all of the above and more! At Albany Windows, we truly believe we have a front door option for everyone. With this in mind, we thought we’d help you out by taking a quick look at some of the benefits different entrance door materials can offer you and your family.

Aluminium front doors

Composite Stable style front door

Aluminium front doors are robust, corrosion resistant, long lasting and great for insulating your home whatever the weather. Lightweight, secure and presented with additional locking points, aluminium entrance doors are triple glazing friendly and offer a vast choice of colours too. If you’re looking for a modern front door solution for your home, aluminium makes an excellent choice.

uPVC front doors

Brown uPVC front door

uPVC front doors are well known for their affordability. Low maintenance, durable and ensuring high levels of insulation, uPVC front doors offer ideal soundproofing and energy efficiency qualities. uPVC grants access to a wide range of 19 exciting colour finishes, as opposed to the limitations of standard white uPVC which monopolised the industry back in the ’80s. We also offer the option of a duel colour finish which means that you can have a different colour on the exterior frame whilst your interior frames compliment your home decor.

Composite front doors

Composite doors in Gloucester

Strong, secure and energy efficient, composite front doors lead the market in door technology. A composite door makes an ideal front door for any style of property.

Composite front doors are made with security in mind from the start. With a high-density foam core door slab within a steel-reinforced uPVC frame, our composite front doors will protect you from even the most determined of intruders.

The high performance insulating core, installed within a naturally insulating uPVC frame, make our composite front doors 17% more thermally efficient than traditional timber doors and help to reduce heat loss from your home.
