about our doors

Urban Front doors
What do you need to give me a price quote?

Initially, we would need a structural size i.e. a height and width, a type of finish and a design choice.

How do i measure for my door?

To give you a price quote, we need your best measurements of the width and height of your structural opening. You should measure the width at the top, middle and the bottom of the opening and both sides corner to corner for the height. We'll take the shortest measurements for width and height.

Before finalising your order, you will need to ensure the person or people fitting your door take the exact measurements.

Check out our handy guide on measuring for your door here - this covers measuring for just a door, a door plus sidelights/wood panels or other additions and a rundown of some useful terminology for you to understand.

Can you advise me on the best door for my property?

Absolutely! We offer a free design service, so do call us +44 (0)1494 778 787 or use our general enquiry form to supply us with as much information as possible. We will be very happy to come up with some options for you!

How much do your doors weigh?

They can weigh anything from 100 to 180kgs for a front door.

Do your front doors open inwards and outwards?

Yes, you can specify which way you’d like the door to open.

What does steel reinforced mean?

Steel reinforcement is a steel frame within the door which helps reduce warping. Warping occurs due to the strength of hardwood when it moves during the change of seasons.

Are your door measurements in inches, centimetres or millimetres?

We usually work with mm or cm but are happy to accept inches and feet as well.

Do you do site visits to take measurements?

Unfortunately due to the fact that we don’t fit, we aren't able to visit to take measurements. These should be taken and confirmed by whoever is fitting your door for you.

However, for the purposes of receiving a quote, you can easily take initial measurements yourself - follow our useful guide on measuring for a new door to learn more.

Will i need a new frame for an Urban Front door?

Yes, we only supply our doors with their own frame due to the bespoke nature of the door and its hardware.

Can i get samples of the wood finishes?

Yes, all you need to do is send us an email or give us a call and we are happy to post these out to you.

You can learn more about our natural hardwoods here.

Can we fit our own handles to your doors?

Yes, we are able to fit these for you in our workshop or we can send the door to you without any handles for you to fit on site. But please be sure to check with us about specs of where the handle can be fitted due to our steel reinforcement.
