Why do we have doors? For ventilation, privacy, and protection from intruders? The fact is, we don't give enough credit to the front door of the house. Tell me, how many times in a day do you think about doors, especially the front door of a building or house? You don't at all, unless you are denied entry through it. The front door of your house creates the first impression of what lies beyond it, and makes the first step into your house an unforgettable one. So, if you are thinking of repainting your front door, you must remember these pointers before you venture out shopping for paints.
The door frame is generally made of hardwood coupled with UPVC (Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) which makes the door frame rank high on durability. The hardwood composition is meant for the outer door frame, whereas for the inner door frame, the material that is employed is called galvanized steel. The composite door thermal efficiency is enhanced due to the polyurethane foam consistency and the use of Glass Resistant Plastic. GRP has the capacity to retain its color and enhances the appearance of the door, thereby giving a grainy wood-like effect. It has a highly resistant fiberglass available in variegated colors, together with galvanized steel that aids the door in sustaining the weather conditions preventing it from warping, expanding or contracting. Thus, the insulation that the door provides is par excellence. Due to the chlorofluorocarbon content in the door composition, the door keeps the interiors of the house warm during winters and pleasant during summers.
Small pulls that are attached to tables, drawers, and cupboards also tend to look very attractive. The simplicity of manufacturing enables manufacturers to produce pulls that are small and intricate, at a very low-cost. Unlike the smaller metallic ones, those made of porcelain are easier to clean as they do not have small and intricate depressions. Constant use of metallic pulls wears off the polish or electroplating, making its appearance quite dull. This demerit is overcome by porcelain as it never loses its charm.
If you are replacing existing door handles, then ensure the new hardware has the same drill centers as the previous model. Else, you will be left with extra drill holes that will have to be covered separately.
