ABOUT REPLACEMENT DOORS
Replacement doors are normally required to replace front or back exterior doors, which are subject to weather deterioration. Internal replacement doors, either moulded, veneered, or of solid timber, are also supplied for use when a customer wishes to change the internal appearance of their home. Front and back exterior replacement doors are available in UPVC, in Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP), and in solid wood. Traditional Victorian styles as well as contemporary styles are available. Glazing, which is usually to the upper panels, may be clear, obscured, or in coloured stained glass.
