See Your Home from Differently Over Summer


With summer days in full flow, you’re spending more time outside in the garden, entertaining the kids over the summer break and going on countryside walks.

Everyone wants to enjoy the sunshine while it’s here and why not?

Whilst you’re outside on those warm, sunny days you can’t help but glance at the beautiful home you’ve worked so hard to achieve. But, as the bright sunlight shines down on your home, faults begin to appear that you may not have discovered before.

Your front door is the first impression that visitors get when they see your home.  Any entranceway should be clean, well maintained and clutter-free. If your front door, or any door in your house for that matter, is affected by one of the following signs, you may need to think about investing in a new one to ensure your home is looking its best.

  • Visible damage – Visible cracks from weather damage or general wear and tear will not go unnoticed by visitors and can impact the strength of your door making it vulnerable. Boost security by replacing your door with a high security uPVC alternative
  • Peeling paint – Over time, hot and cold weather can degrade paint on timber doors and affect the quality of the wood underneath.  Low maintenance uPVC doors could be the answer – the latest uPVC technology means that they’ll look great for years to come while remaining solid and safe.
  • Chills – As doors age, they can sag, shrink and suffer from faulty seals that let draughts into your home.  A well fitted uPVC door is made to fit and will benefit from a perfect seal which will help you save money on your energy bills.
  • Difficulty opening and closing – doors which are sticking or dragging along the floor might mean you have a problem.  If your door is sagging or warped, it might damage your flooring as it scrapes across it.  This is avoided with a uPVC door which won’t become misshapen over time.
  • Loose hinges – Usually, a door which squeaks when you open it is a minor issue and a little oil will help.  However, the looseness may be a symptom of the wood degrading and should be looked at properly to ensure that your home is secure.
