How much will a front door cost in 2022?

February 14, 2022

Here at Jack of Glass, we know that the pandemic has brought people a lot of time to reassess their living space and to make the decision to invest in their homes. If you’ve made the decision that a new front door is right for you – due to a draught, weather damage, or purely for aesthetic reasons – then let us explain the costs involved.

Cost factor one: the material

double glazing gerrards crossuPVC: This material is recognised as the most affordable when it comes to making a front door. Not only does this make it an attractive option, but your uPVC front door can be made in a wide variety of colours, including a wood-effect if you have a traditional property and want the appearance of timber but the reliability of uPVC. Your uPVC front door is also very easy to maintain, being wipe-clean, and can have an energy efficiency of up to A+.

Timber: If you do not want wood-effect, but the real thing, then timber may be the option for you. A timber door can add a sense of grandeur to your property. They also offer good energy efficiency and will be long-lasting, but all of this comes at a cost so be aware that it is the highest-priced front door due to the materials and specialist installation process.

Composite: At Jack of Glass, we most frequently find our High Wycombe customers choosing composite doors as their front door of choice. Our composite doors are made of a combination of a solid timber core with a GRP (glass reinforced plastic) skin. As such, they provide many benefits, like having the highest level of energy efficiency and they also offer you a high level of security due to their solid structure. The GRP skin can be tailored to the colour of your choice and is effective at withstanding accidental damage: all 3.8mm of the skin (one of the thickest on the market) is made in your desired colour, so a scratch or knock would not leave you with an unsightly mark.

Cost factor two: accessories and features

Grey Composite Doors CheshamWe can offer you many upgrades to enhance your door, be these for security purposes or for appearance. For example, you can tailor the colour of any of the above materials to suit your home. You might also consider upgrading to stainless steel ironmongery for your handles or letterplates. We also have a wide range of glass options, depending on how much light you wish your door to let into your property.

Cost factor three: the size

The cost of your door will of course be dependent on the size of the front door that you need. As you may expect, the bigger the size of the door correlates to the cost of the door and installation. This may also include such factors as sidescreens and flag windows. Every door is made-to-measure to ensure it is the perfect fit for your home.

Whichever door you choose, keep in mind the cost will also include the amount of time, skill and effort that the door will take to fit, and this is dependent upon the property type the door is being fitted into. For your peace of mind, each one of our doors comes with a 10-year insurance-backed guarantee as standard. Why not get a free quote today?

We have recently had our front door and windows replaced by Jack of Glass. They were great. The communication was amazing, we knew every step of the way what was happening and they left place spotless. Our new door and windows have completely changed the house. Very happy and would recommend to anyone.

Jack of glass have recently replaced all my windows efficiently and to a high standard. The price was also very reasonable. The customer service was outstanding along with the services they provide. Highly recommended.

Mr Bennett

I had to replace a small double glazed panel in a window. I though it would be difficult to get anybody interested as it was such a small job. However, Jack of Glass did the work. They visited the house to take the measurements, ordered the replacement glass and fitted it all very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I will use them again.
