Cardiff’s Favourite Installer For uPVC Front, Side and Back Doors – Centric Home Improvements
When picking an external front door, there are three main elements to consider. 1. appearance, 2. performance (i.e. security, heat insulation, weather resistance and ease of upkeep) and 3. budget.
Replacing front and back doors is one of the best ways to change the appearance of your home or business premises, so you should be careful to choose the right type and design, as well as the colour and finish.

How To Choose Your uPVC Front Door
With so many options available, designing your new uPVC front door can be overwhelming. Here we lay out the 5 key steps, however, our team can also assist you to make the perfect choice for your property.
Step 1. Front door designs
In order to maintain the kerb appeal of your home, we would recommend keeping your new door consistent with your home’s exterior style. The look and style of your home says a great deal about you. Doors are a prominent feature of any property and really dictate the character of your home. As well as creating a first impression for visitors.
Keep the style of your home in mind when choosing the style of your new front door. Consider installing a Victorian-styled front door on a Victorian home, for example. A more modern suburban house would likely suit a more contemporary front door. A cottage, farmhouse, office, retail shop would all likely suit a different style door to each other.
However, you cannot really go wrong in choosing a new front door as it is not in absolute contrast to your home.
Step 2. Front door colours and effects
Driving by your home or visiting it, the first thing people notice about a door is its colour and effect. Therefore choosing the colour is important. Depending on the make of door you choose, we offer 10 different coloured wood effects and solid colour options.
When choosing a colour, consider the colour of your external wall or brickwork. For example, red front doors don’t look their best on a home with bright-red brickwork. However, many houses in Cardiff are red brick yet have stone bay windows that are usually painted white or cream. A red front door may enhance the look against the bright colour of the bay windows, rather than clash with the red brick.
The colour of the door and its frame should complement, rather than match, the overall colour scheme of the front of your home.
Other coloured brickwork popular in Cardiff such as brown, grey and natural stone walls suits a door of any colour or effect.
Step 3. Solid, glass or decorative glass panels?
Once the style and colour of your door are decided upon, the next consideration is whether to have a solid panel door or to have glass panels.
The amount of light you intend to bring into a room or hallway behind the front door is also important to consider. Also, consider the level of visibility you want to provide from the outside looking in.
We have a huge range of glass options available to get the perfect balance for you of light coming into the home and privacy from people at your front door.
Our triple glazed glass options give you not only added security and peace of mind but also increased efficiency and energy savings.
We also have a choice of decorative glass with plain or coloured detail, handmade lead and film designs with many incorporating glass bevel elements to further enhance the aesthetic quality to finalise the look of your door.
Step 4. Front door furniture
Door handles, locks, letterboxes and knockers are collectively known as “door furniture”.
Normally, the finish of door furniture is determined by the colour of the door. While most people choose to go with stainless steel or graphic finishes, you might wish to consider gold if you are buying brown grain doors or black door accessories if you are buying cottage doors that would look better with a rustic feel.
Step 5. Installation
Door quality depends largely on the quality of installation. A perfectly fitted door and door furniture will enhance the look and feel of the door, ensure it is energy efficient, reduce external noise levels and make sure the door performs as expected for many, many years.
When choosing a company to supply and fit your new uPVC external door – make sure of to ask the following:
- How long have they been installing front doors?
- Do they have a good reputation/reviews?
- Is there a guarantee on the product and installation?
- Are they insured?
