A Complete Buyer’s Guide to Twin Front Doors

Twin front doors, another term for double front doors, allow homeowners to create grand entryways. The doors swing open from the center, giving people ample room to enter or exit a home. Plus, they provide a sense of opulence, improving the visual aesthetic of your entryway.

Twin front doors are available in a variety of materials, including:

  • Composite / Fiberglass
  • Steel
  • Wood

Every material provides its own benefits, but also comes with potential drawbacks. Additionally, the construction of twin front doors has a significant impact on the overall cost.

You’ll also find a broad selection of styles to choose from, ranging from industrial to traditional to contemporary. This allows you to select twin front doors that meet both your functional and design-related needs.

Materials

One of the most important decisions you’ll make when purchasing twin front doors is choosing the material. Not only will this affect the cost of the door, but it also determines the maintenance requirements. One the cheaper end of the spectrum are steel doors. They aren’t constructed of solid metal. Instead, a lighter core is covered in sheet steel to make the weight manageable.

Steel twin front doors are durable, though you have to make sure the finish remains intact to prevent rust. Composite or fiberglass doors are moderately priced and require less maintenance than steel. The material can also be cast to mimic wood grain, creating a higher-end look, and is easily painted. Wood twin front doors are the most expensive but allow you to paint or stain the surface. They are durable, but the maintenance requirements are high to ensure the wood isn’t directly exposed to the elements.

Safety

A secure front door is often seen as a must. After all, your doorway represents a weak point, so choosing a robust option can help deter break-ins. Some homeowners may be surprised to learn that twin front doors might not be as secure as a single front door. The middle, where the two doors come together, represent a weak point, and a swift kick could defeat the integrity of the lock.

However, you can mitigate these risks by selecting a lock with a long barrel, allowing the barrel to penetrate deeper into the other door and providing additional stability. Adding interior locking security bars can also help as well as door stop bolts that penetrate into the floor.

Features

The biggest benefit of twin front doors is the ability to create a wide opening when entering your home. This allows the entryway to be incredibly dramatic, but it does mean that more floor space is required to operate them.

You can also find twin front doors with a variety of aesthetic features, including glass inserts or side panels, and even transoms. By adding glass to your entryway, more light enters the room, making darker entryways more vibrant. Hardware is also available in a wide range of finishes, including bronze, brass, and nickel. You can select options that best reflect your personal style or that complement the era of your home to help make your final look cohesive.

Upvc Front Doors

Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride (uPVC) is basically pure, rigid plastic, and because of the versatility and resilience of uPVC doors, they are a great choice for a front door.
