Once you have already clarified during a professional consultation what requirements your Gaulhofer front door is to satisfy in terms of energy or security, you may well then make up your mind based on look. Every time you go in or out of your house should be a pleasant aesthetic experience!
In short: Lovers of nature should always opt for wood with its warm look and agreeable feel. For customers who are mindful of costs but also want maximum freedom of design, uPVC windows are generally the right choice. We recommend aluminium for people with a more extravagant taste, who then also benefit from an exceptionally lengthy service life.
All Gaulhofer front doors fundamentally offer very good insulation values, although higher-end models are of course also available for more stringent requirements. You should preferably ask your Gaulhofer specialist partner for advice in order to determine your precise needs and the options offered by Gaulhofer.
Aluminium cover shells hugely increase the level of weather protection for a front door. This is a particular advantage for wood, but also greatly prolongs the service life of uPVC front doors, ensuring a resistant finish that will look attractive for years to come. When it comes to variety of design, the wide range of colours also offers customers freedom of choice.
As with windows and balcony doors, the frame and glass should be cleaned regularly with suitable products. It is also recommended oiling the moving parts of the hardware. Detailed information is available, either from your Gaulhofer partner or in Gaulhofer's care instructions.
The Gaulhofer warranty guidelines or Gaulhofer's specialist partners can inform you about the different service conditions for each product. We recommend observing them without fail to preserve the value of your front door and benefit from the full warranty. This way you will significantly prolong the life of your windows and front door.
Despite its extremely stable design and following professional installation, your front door may sustain damage through improper use, either over the years or if force is applied. In this case you should contact your Gaulhofer specialist partner!
Many front doors have the feature or option of a threshold-free crossing. Because Gaulhofer attaches great importance to the fact that living is possible for all without restrictions. For example, elderly or physically disadvantaged people as well as small children enjoy unlimited comfort. Naturally, the operability of all details is effortless.
Professional installation by a Gaulhofer specialist partner is essential, particularly in the case of rather complex building components such as front doors. If they are not fitted properly, relatively high stresses could be imposed on the hardware or locking parts, so causing the door to be used incorrectly and resulting in damage in the long term.
