When the first GRP Heritage Front and Back Doors were introduced to the public, the idea of upgrading the front and back porches was considered. The GRP, which was derived from the granite used in constructing the house, were then used as a replacement to the wooden front porch doors that were popular at that time. However, it was soon realized that there were more advantages in using these composite doors for the purpose. This is because the material, while initially costing more, offered a wide range of advantages such as durability, easy maintenance and of course a more contemporary look.
With the advent of GRP Heritage Composite Doors, it has been made easier for people to remodel their houses and make them more attractive without spending a lot of money. Apart from this, these doors also prove to be very flexible when it comes to fitting in small areas and also increasing the resale value of a house. Another advantage of using these doors is that they can really help in improving the energy efficiency of the house. This is because unlike other porches, the front and back porches have large amounts of air and therefore heat. If this is not removed, then the energy efficiency of a house becomes bad, which ultimately leads to increased heating bills and the cost of running the house. Using these doors would reduce the amount of air movement and therefore create an ideal environment for maximizing the efficiency of the house.
When it comes to maintenance, both the GRP and composite doors are easy to maintain. There is no need for painting or staining, and thus it also ensures that the door retains its original charm, allowing the owner to enjoy the house for many years to come. In terms of staining, only a light stain is necessary to allow the color of the GRP or composite to shine through and get preserved. This way, it can really enhance the look of the front and back porches of a house, thus making them more welcoming and appealing to a large number of people.
