At Fremantle Door & Window Company, we make custom external doors for our clients in the Perth area. We use solid, external grade timber and special glass that we manufacture right here in WA. They have become an extremely popular item among Perth homeowners. We would like to tell you what our customers love about our custom made external doors.
Most Cost-Effective Way to Modernise Your Home
One of the easiest ways to modernise your home, both on the inside and the outside, is to replace all of your external doors and windows. Your main entryway, usually the “front door,” gives your guests and even passers-by their first impression of your home.
A standard door can be drab. If you have an older home and you still have the same front door you had when the house was built, it probably doesn’t do much for you visually. It is probably “just a door.”
But when you install a custom exterior door from Fremantle Door & Window, you get an entrance that will make you proud of your home and give a great first impression to anyone who sees it.
Your doors can say a lot about your home. For example, while we can give you a solid timber front door, we can also use plenty of other designs. Pivot doors and bifold doors can both make a bold statement in the front of your home.
The reason they are so cost-effective is that we don’t have to rebuild or renovate a sizeable portion of your home to install custom external doors and windows. We can outfit your home with a wall full of bifold doors without compromising the original structure of your home.
Bifold Doors: a Great Transition into Alfresco Living Area
Bifold doors make a great transition from your family room into an alfresco living area whether it’s on your patio, in your garden or on an elevated timber deck. Because bifold doors can be folded and put to the side, they allow for the widest entrance and exit. This effectively turns your alfresco living area into added living space without renovating your home.
More Light and More Space
Bifold doors give you more living space because you don’t have to make clearance for a traditional door to swing back. But most of all, they let more light into your home. This helps to elevate your mood and provides the illusion of even more space.
Integration with Nature
Timber bifold doors are the best way to integrate your house with its natural surroundings. First, the light and transition to alfresco living that we mentioned bring nature indoors to you. But there is another factor: the beauty of timber. Timber is a natural material. When it is done right, letting the grain show through, it can provide a stunning visual transition and integration with trees and other natural settings.
Energy Efficient Build Cuts Down on Heating and Cooling Costs
Timber is a natural insulator. In addition, we use specially-made, thick glass that helps prevent heat transfer. Also, all of our custom external doors always fit snugly into their frames. This keeps both air and heat from getting in or out unless you want them to. If you want to use air conditioning or heat, keep them closed and they will naturally insulate your home.
But if you want to cool your home by opening doors and windows, the wide openings in bifold and sliding doors allow a lot of breeze in.
Great for the Environment
Negative effect on the environment is measured by “carbon footprint.” The carbon footprint is the amount of greenhouse gases any process or material releases into the environment, usually in the form of CO2. Trees actually breathe in the same air we do, but instead of using the oxygen and “exhaling” the CO2, they breathe the air, use the carbon to build themselves and release oxygen back into the air.
We use timber that has been ethically and sustainably harvested. Trees “store” carbon until a certain age. We use timber that has been harvested after it no longer stores carbon at maximum efficiency. Then, the area is replanted with new trees that store even more carbon.
