door types

When it comes to choosing a door for your house, there a number of key things to consider. Your home is one of the most important places for you so it is important you choose the right door and choose the right door colour for you to give you years of happy memories rather than reminders you need to change your front door. Whether you are looking for your dream front door for your home or looking for an elegant bi-folding door for your patio, our guide takes you through how to find the perfect door for your home that really encapsulates who you are.

What Type of Door Are You Looking For?

When it comes to door types, the first thing you need to consider is where on your home you want the door for. Will it be a charming Residor front door or a modern aluminium bi-folding door to open out from kitchen to garden in one smooth movement? The type of door you choose is key to getting the most out of your door.


Choosing Front Door Styles

Whilst you may know you are looking for a front door for your house, there are a number of different door types to choose from, each with its own characteristics and style. Here at RB Windows, we supply three main types of front door for your home.


UPVC Front Doors

Perhaps one of the most common types is the UPVC front door. Available in a variety of styles, colours and glass types, our UPVC doors offer contemporary styling, high quality and complete security for your front door. The high-tech CoolSkin technology they are developed with makes them the perfect choice for any weather conditions come rain or shine.


Residor Doors

Alternatively, Residor front doors are the perfect stylish addition to any home with a classic look that can’t be beaten. With a 3.6mm skin, these doors stand up to the most rigorous of security testing whilst remaining competitive on price. The Ultion cylinder within the door also acts as an extra security feature that locks down when it senses an attack and offers a £1000 break-in guarantee to give you complete peace of mind.


Solidor Composite Doors

Also known as solid hardwood timber core composite doors, Solidor composite doors are hard-wearing whilst remaining ultra-stylish additions to your home. They come in a range of styles and colours with a wide variety of hardware elements to choose from allowing you to choose the perfect front door for your home with the help of our online door designer or team.  Solidor’s 44mm solid timber core is thermally efficient and extremely secure to give you the same peace of mind we provide with each of our front door types.


Choosing a Back Door

When it comes to garden door types, there is a wealth of choice, all customisable to your ideas and your style of home. Whether you are looking for traditional French doors for your patio doors or UPVC patio doors to let some light in from your garden, our extensive range is fully-customisable and secure.


Aluminium Patio Doors

Perfect for contemporary-style homes, aluminium patio doors are the perfect way to bring more light into your home whilst still maintaining a high energy-efficient rating. Formed from a slim aluminium frame, these patio doors are ideal for those who want to add a sophisticated touch to their home with a traditional sliding effect compared to bi-folding back door types.


UPVC Patio Doors

Simple yet stunning, UPVC patio doors have been a firm favourite for back doors for years and offer a wealth of features to make the most of your back door space. Completely low-maintenance, UPVC patio doors offer heightened security and energy-efficiency to your home and will maintain their beauty for years to come. Connect indoor and outdoor spaces with these sliding patio doors for an extension of your home space and bring a touch of the outdoors into your home.


Aluminium Bi-Folding Doors

A modern update on the traditional aluminium sliding doors, aluminium bi-folding doors allow you to almost completely open up your wall space to connect with your garden and are usually set with around two to seven panels, each folding back to create more space. Modern, light and versatile, aluminium bi-folding doors are perfect for conservatories and orangeries and come in a wide variety of sizes and materials to suit your home style.
