Has your door seen better days, but you don’t want to get rid of it? Or maybe 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?
Restore or replace? That is the question!
Your front door acts as the face of your home, so you want it to look its best at all times. If your door is sticking, difficult to open or malfunctioning in some other way this is a potential burglary waiting to happen. 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?
I want to restore my uPVC door …
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.
