The beauty of timber doors is undeniable but their susceptibility to weather damage and high maintenance can make them less appealing in the long run. Timber needs to be regularly varnished, cleaned, and sealed otherwise it starts to look worn and tired.
Thankfully, now there is a way to get that timber look without having to do all that maintenance or worry about fulfilling the strict requirements of a timber door warranty.
Why Choose Timber Look Over Traditional Timber Doors?
Unlike wooden doors, aluminium doors in timber look require minimal maintenance. They do not require painting, sanding or oiling like traditional wooden doors. Additionally, the warranties for timber tend to be hard to claim. If the door is not maintained regularly or often for coastal environments, then the door may not be covered under warranty. One of the biggest issues with timber doors is warping. Timber look doors, on the other hand, do not warp and will not rot or crack as wooden doors are known to do over time. This makes aluminium doors the perfect option for homeowners who are looking for an elegant and low-maintenance entryway that will last for years.
Advantages of Aluminium Timber Look Doors
Aluminium front doors are a popular modern alternative to traditional timber doors due to their outstanding qualities such as strength, durability, and longevity.
The Jason range of Sentry Doors offer a sturdy frame design and sub-frame system to ensure the door is built in square and plumb. Seals are tested to suit high wind pressure and resistance to water ingress. Extreme cyclic door slamp testing and tensile load strength tests are carried out to ensure longevity. Unlike traditional timber doors, they retain their pristine appearance. All Jason Sentry Doors meet up to and include BAL29 bush fire rating, including the timber look colours.

These doors require no re-painting or re-varnishing, making them the perfect choice for those who desire a low-maintenance lifestyle. In addition to this, aluminium doors are highly durable and resistant to warping, splintering, and breaking when forced. This means that your doors will remain beautiful and functional for years to come.
Tip for Choosing the Right Glass for your Aluminium Door
Choosing the right door glass is an important decision as it not only adds to the aesthetic appeal of your house but also serves practical purposes. Clear glass is a great way to allow natural light to fill your living space. However, if you are concerned about privacy, opt for translucent or toned glass. Keep in mind, depending on the privacy glass chosen, it may reduce the amount of natural light coming through the glass and darken the room.
If you live on a busy street and traffic noise is an issue, go for laminated or double gazing which provide better sound insulation. Additionally, if you are looking for energy-efficient solutions, consider Low-E glass which helps to regulate temperature.
All of the above options can be combined to find the perfect solution to suit your needs. A Jason Windows product specialist can offer expert glass selection guidance.
