There are only a few, relatively inexpensive, additions or changes we can make to the external appearance of your property. However, by fitting a new front door our customers find that this single item can make a significant improvement.
Nowadays, there is an massive choice of timber external doors; the only dilemma is what to choose. Doorsan supply a broad range of external timber doors to compliment any style of property.

Properties built in the early 20th century such as in the 20's and 30's are now well catered for. A lovely example is the 30's style Edinburgh external door in Meranti Hardwood with it's stunning Tri-glazed leaded and patterned glass unit. The Edinburgh looks good with a dark stain yet is principally designed to be painted, as these doors generally were. Nowadays, there are a wealth of period colours available and for advice on the best treatments you must refer to the finishing recommendations from Doorsan when purchasing the products.
Properties built during the post war years, and since, vary greatly both in style and in the type of construction materials used. Therefore, a certain amount of personal choice with a sympathetic consideration to the architecture is required when choosing an exterior door for these properties.

This range offers a great selection of sizes including panels for creating Grand Entrance sets.
