Many people don’t give too much thought into their front doors, and so long as it gives you the privacy and security that you need, there’s no problem. But, nothing lasts forever, so this article if about how much replacing your door is roughly going to cost, and what to look out for.
Some people are unwilling to uPVC since they think it is plastic so it either won’t last or it isn’t worth the cost.
