Make a Better First Impression

Posted on by


The front of any house is of vital importance. It is the first thing that a visitor notices, and can make all the difference between someone liking or loathing your property.

First impressions really are vital, and can stay in the mind for a long time.

One of the ways that a good first impression can be gained is with the front door. A door with a lovely wooden finish can look great – but they are known for being tricky customers to deal with. Never fear though, as Warmseal have a technology called Warmdor – which is the perfect solution for those worried about maintenance issues.

Got the look

The Warmseal range of doors come with the same performance and energy rating as our regular PVCu doors, but with the feel of a wooden one.

It’s a win-win situation all round.

There are a number of reasons why a technology like Warmdor by Warmseal is the perfect one to choose.

For example, one of the main benefits of having a Warmdor is that they will not rot, warp, crack, swell, shrink or bow. This is because, while they look like wood, they are actually reinforced with steel to give an excellent durability.


The natural look comes from the use of state-of-the-art technology that produces a lifelike effect, and allows the customer to choose from a large variety of wood grains and even colours. You can even chose from a huge selection of glass designs, include leaded and coloured glass.

Worried about safety? There is no need, as all of our doors feature a triple glazes system that offers the best in home security, as well as a multi-point high security lock system – giving you peace of mind at all times.

We also offer a 10-year guarantee on every door in the Warmdor range, meaning that a new front door really will be a long-term investment worth making.


However, there are other ways to make the front of your house just as nice as the interior. Think about clearing clutter off the front lawn and around the house – this includes hoses, kids toys and any mismatched lawn ornaments that you might have.

Clearing the front porch (if you have one) of sport equipment and gardening tools is a must, too, as it gives a much cleaner, tidier impression if the porch is free of clutter.

Creating a sense of enclosure can work well, too. This can be done by building a trellis, arbor or pergola. A structure like this helps to define the main entrance of the house, and supply’s structure and beauty.

Some outdoor lighting makes the place look more welcoming in the dark, especially if you have a roofed over entryway outside the front door. A pair of lanterns will cast a soft light that makes a place look a lot more ‘homey’. Some stronger light could be incorporated to illuminate any features that you are particularly proud of.
