We provide a wide variety of custom built doors for homeowners in the Perth area. Custom built doors and windows are the fastest and most cost-effective way to modernise and improve your home without spending an arm and a leg. Believe it or not, one of the most overlooked doors is the most visible and obvious one: the front door.
Whether you are trying to sell your home or you just want to put your best foot forward for guests and neighbours, the front door may be the most important door to “get right.” When real estate agents show a home, they usually meet prospective buyers right outside the front door.
If a real estate agent was trying to sell your home tomorrow, what would your front door look like? Would it be old and uninviting? Or would it be modern and scream “come on in and look at this house”?
Kerb appeal is one of the first terms real estate agents use when assessing a home for sale. It describes your home’s first impression on passers-by, friends, family, neighbours and potential buyers. There are other factors that make up kerb appeal, such as the landscaping in your yard, how well painted your home is and whether there is a lot of clutter in your yard.
But the front door plays a huge role in whether or not someone is going to like your home when they walk in.
Custom Built Doors at Fremantle Door & Window
We have a number of styles, both traditional and modern, that work great for front doors. All of our doors are made of solid, exterior grade timber. The timber is always sourced from ethical suppliers who use sustainable harvesting techniques.
We are Australian owned and operated and all of our materials come from Australia. Our glass is a special weatherproof glass that is specially made for us in WA. Even for modern designs, we use traditional craftsmanship techniques such as stile and rail construction and tenon joinery. We also use marine grade adhesive to ensure that your doors are unaffected by rain, heat or humidity.
Here are a few selections you may choose.
Solid Timber Doors
We know a lot of “spec homes” are built with “solid timber” front doors, but they are basically veneer with a coat of paint. A solid timber door from Fremantle Door & Window Company will be heavy and solid all the way through, helping to insulate your home from hot or cold air. Since it is solid timber, you can decide to stain it instead of painting it. There is nothing that looks more prosperous than a dark stained, solid timber door. Think of the door to the boss’s office in an elite office building.
Pivot doors are doors that don’t have hinges but open much in the matter of a hinged door. They pivot around a fixed point in the doorway. If you want a front door you can see out of that lets the sun shine into your home, a pivot door is a great choice. They are modern style that can go a long way towards updating the appearance of your home.
French doors are also made of timber and glass, but they have a number of panels separated by timber inserts called mullions. They are another traditional design, but they can also be made to look quite modern as they seem to be making a comeback in recent years.
