You might not think about it much, but when you get home from an outing, a school run or a trip down to the local supermarket, how do you feel when you pull up to your house? Is the drive and pathway up to your front door inspiring? And how about your front door? Does it make you happy that this is your home or is it a bit of a sore point?
If you’re honest about how shabby your door is looking, and you think you can do better, then isn’t it about time to consider a replacement? You’ll feel so much better when your new front door creates a positive feeling when you arrive home!
Let’s take a look at Solidor to find out what’s so special about them.
The Feeling of Being More Secure
Old doors aren’t that safe. It is easy to stick something in the door jam and create enough of a gap for a burglar to get the door open. Some older doors flake away and aren’t thick and sturdy enough either. Overall, they’re not the barrier to entry that you probably think they are.
The Solidor is built to change all that. It’s produced using timber that’s a minimum of 48mm thick, which is considerably denser than either the composite UPVC or GRP alternatives. Every Solidor also comes with an Ultion cylinder with a 3-star diamond rating. Doors with glass are also toughened too. Indeed, the Solidor design has multiple accreditations from security-related authorities, including the Secured by Design initiative.
Designed for Appearance
To get a new front door to fit into the surrounding structure, not every door style will be suitable. Because of that, there are more than 50 Solidor door designs. Each one is unique to suit a different type of building. Whether you use the door at the front, side or rear of your home, there’s a door design that will match the existing appearance. This way, the new door will look like it came with the home.
Every home looks different from both the outside and inside. Not every coloured door suits the rest of the building, the colours on the walls or the surrounding front path. To match Solidor doors with their surroundings, they’re available in a choice of 23 colours.
The colour choices are wide with darker and light hues to fit in nicely. One added feature is that the colour chosen can be different on either side, so the exterior doesn’t have to match the interior shade. Therefore, a darker exterior colour scheme can be matched appropriately while using something lighter indoors.
Low to No Maintenance Too
Every Solidor gets a protective skin made from a thermoplastic polymer called Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. This protects the wood from the elements and avoids it getting scratched over time too. This also stops the need to repaint the door every year because the skin maintains the colour scheme well.
When fitting a Solidor, you don’t just get enhanced security and peace of mind, they’re durable and look great too.
