Wood, aluminium or composite front door for a mock tudor house

4 years ago


We are fitting a new front door (frame of 1150 mm x 2200 mm) and wanted advice/suggestions on a couple of things:

1. Dark wooden door looks really nice but I am not sure how often will we have to treat it and how much maintenance it will require. Would an aluminium or a composite door look good? None of the neighbours have modern aluminium doors and it does not seem to go with the look of the house.

2. At the moment, the front door is inset by almost 2 ft, so we are also bringing the door to the front of the house so that its flush with the front wall. What sort of canopy would you advice on? What else would you recommend so that the look does not get spoilt.

Here is the front door we are planning to go with in a darker colour.

Here is the property

Thanks for all the help.
