External Door Frames
A beautiful external door deserves an equally attractive external door frame. It not only complements your door but will also ensure your door fits snugly. This will help eliminate any possible draft, keeping your home warm and cosy. The right frame can add to the grandeur of the entrance, while also holding its value whenever it comes time to sell.
Standard frames are best suited to Victorian to Edwardian period properties. Large Victorian houses should generally go for a standard frame with a curved overhead window. Late Victorian to Edwardian properties should use the same frame but with a rectangular overhead window instead. We recommend adding the properties number to the overhead glass panel for the ‘full’ look.
1920s to 1930s properties are best suited with Flag Frames, which allows more light through. They should incorporate a single window or double side windows depending on the size of the hallway.
The most extravagant of all door ways is the Door Flag Frame with panels & overhead. This frame features windows all around and above, which makes for a superb entrance no matter the period. Our experience tells us you’ll return the cost by double, if not treble, by the time you sell.
If you are in need of a ‘Cill’ (also known as the Macclesfield step) please contact us.
