It’s often a part of the design that people can ignore or overlook, especially when they first move in. You’re usually keen to get the inside of your home looking exactly how you want it. But a simple change like your front door can make a world of difference!

A&D Joinery offers a fantastic selection on doors of all types to help you find the door that suits you and your home perfectly. But what should you look for when buying a new door? You can break a door down into different parts such as colour and style but first of all, let’s focus on materials.


A&D Joinery has a broad selection of timber doors. In fairness, there’s probably not too much that can be said about timber doors that you don’t already know. You know that they look fantastic and they can be painted in any colour! They’re incredibly durable, but you will need to help it along with a little maintenance, about once a year, though this a process that some people enjoy. After all, maintenance isn’t a bad thing! Finally, timber doors are excellent insulators, so that’ll put another tick in the wood door box!

If timber doors aren’t what you like then maybe you’d like A&D Joinery’s Metal or Aluminium doors. Metal and Aluminium doors are renowned for their clean and modern look. There’s practically no maintenance required for these doors either, you won’t be reaching for the paint, varnish or stain with this door fitted. Metal and Aluminium doors are also able to provide you with extra security that you wouldn’t typically get with timber doors.
Now, onto the most popular material for front doors; Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride or UPVC doors are incredibly popular as they’re pretty much the perfect all-rounder. They’re very low maintenance, a quick wipe with warm soapy water every now and then is all that’s needed to keep your door looking brand new. They’re also very energy efficient, safe and secure. Need we say more?

A&D Joinery takes great pride in installing all doors, and we know that you’ll be happy with your choice, whatever it is that you decide to go for. There is one door, however, that stands above the rest; and that’s the Rockdoor.

Rockdoor is the most secure door on the market. It first came to market in 1997, and now it keeps approximately half a million families safe across the country. We are tried, tested and trusted.

In 2004 Rockdoor grabbed the headlines with ‘Door that Beat the Bobbies’ after police were unable to gain access through the door. Despite all of their best efforts, including attempting to smash through the door with their battering rams – our composite doors really are the strongest doors on the UK market.

Rockdoor is that hard to break into that into 2004, we grabbed the headlines after police were unable to access a property, despite using battering rams! Emergency services have completed training on which tools work best to access a property in an emergency.

There are many reasons why our door is so strong. From a carbon fibre inner frame all the way through to us using a metal that’s stronger than steel in our locking chamber and various ‘lock and block’ mechanisms in an attempt of a break-in. 

Having a secure door is what you want, and you absolutely shouldn’t settle for anything less than the best. Despite the peace of mind, you’ll get with our door, it’s still your home, so you don’t want your front door looking like something from Fort Knox. Rockdoor understand that and have developed and engineered multiple styles and ranges for you to choose from. Secure doesn’t mean bland.
