Restore your door? A new one might work out cheaper


Has your door seen better days, but you don’t want to get rid of it? Or maybeColourful doors you’d like a new door, but don’t know whether your budget will stretch that far? Did you know that instead of restoring your door, it might actually work out cheaper for you to purchase a brand new one?

You may believe you’re saving money by restoring your old door, but imagine how much you’ll lose if there’s a break-in?

Depending on what your uPVC door’s fault is, the majority of cases would be cheaper to replace the entire door than attempting to restore it. A recurring problem that we experience via many new customers is they wish to repair a 15-20 year old uPVC door. We explain the cost of the repairs and the cost of a complete replacement, with up-to-date multipoint locking systems, and the majority of customers understand the benefits of replacing rather than restoring.
