Planning for a new front door?

Choosing a new front door can is a very exciting and important task. Scouring the internet for a new front door can be quite daunting, especially if you do not know what to look for. Don’t worry, we have your back. Today, we’re going to take a look at the steps that will help you to choose a new front door for your beloved home. 

The checklist

Before you hit the buy button, or even, before you start searching for that perfect new front door for your beloved home, there are a number of things that need to be done.

Choosing the design

This is probably the most important step when trying to match your new front door to your home. Off the top of our head, it can be quite difficult to figure out what sort of door design would suit the overall design aesthetic of our home. Thus, we look for inspiration. The best place to search? Start with Pinterest and our website. Get ideas, get inspired.

Compliance with the building codes

Now, much like components that go into building your home, your new front door must adhere to the codes and standards that have been set in place by your local council. The standards and codes are there in the interest of protecting the health and safety of the general public. So do call up your local council and find out if your door needs to be rated for fire safety, resistance, etc. 

Lead time and planning

Lastly we have to take into consideration the time it would take to produce our new front door and have it delivered to our home. Generally, expect your door to leave the factory within 6 weeks of you placing the order. We recommend keeping 8 weeks aside in your door installation-plan.
