Our Customers Love Our Doors!

We reckon that external doors are possibly the most important doors in any house. They can’t just look great, they have to be secure and thermally efficient too. And it’s no good having a beautiful brand new external door unless your door frame is up to scratch too.

What Are The Benefits Of An External Door Frame From Aspire?

Our frames are made of the same high-quality timber as our oak veneered doors. This means they are a perfect match for our oak door collection and create a seamless fit.

The materials and timber used to make them aren’t the only benefit these door frames have. They are manufactured to an equally high standard, making them perfectly suitable for the stresses posed to external doors.

External Door Frames To Suit Every Home

Oak Veneer

When it comes to external door frames you want something strong and secure. This is why we only softwood cores for strength and stability with oak veneers to match our external oak doors.

Unfinished

An external door frame should look like an extension of the door itself. This is why we offer our door frames unfinished so that you can finish your frame to match your door exactly.

All of our unfinished products will need to be finished with either a stain or a pint to provide adequate protection. You can stain the frame to show its beautiful wood grain at its best, or you can grab a paintbrush and add a burst of colour.

With our unfinished door frames, the choice is entirely up to you.

Open In Or Out

We like to keep our wood door frames flexible so that they are suitable to use in any home and meet your exact needs. This is why our frames can all be configured to open either inwards or outwards.

Ready To Face The Elements

British winters are not known for being kind. In an average year, the exterior of your home can take a real battering. And if rain, dew or any other moisture gets into your doors or frames, they can weaken and begin to warp or bow.

 

A correctly finished external door frame will have significant resistance to moisture, but to ensure your home is fully sealed the head and jamb sections of every external door frame we supply comes fitted with weather seals.

 

Not only will this help you keep wet weather at bay, but it will also improve the insulating properties of your door. It will help you keep all your centrally-heated air inside, and keep the freezing winter out.

Price Includes Delivery

At Aspire Doors we strive to be as transparent with price as possible. When you order online with us, the price you see on our site already includes VAT and delivery costs. You won’t get any nasty surprises when it comes to our payment process.

Once your order is placed, we guarantee delivery for in-stock items within 5 days.

What Is The Frame Around An Exterior Door Called?

The frame around an external door can also be called a ‘door lining’. This is because the timber frame sits within the brickwork opening and ‘lines it’ to support and protect your door.

The frame itself is made up of the same parts as internal door frames are. The pieces of timber at the side of the door are called ‘jambs’ while the piece that sits along the top is called a ‘head’.

Exterior door frames also feature sills. These sit at the bottom of the door to stop moisture and dirt from getting into your home under the door.

Can I Use External Door Frames For Internal Doors?

It is possible to use external door frames for internal doors but it is not exactly practical.

Though it may seem that internal and external frames do the same job, they are not interchangeable. There are actually quite a few differences between them.

This is mainly because any door frames on the exterior of your house have to form a tighter, more secure seal than the ones on your internal doors.

Unlike the frames for internal doors which sit flush with the wall, external door frames are usually recessed. This is because external walls are so much thicker than internal ones.

As external doors sit recessed and do not have architrave, external door frames need to have a cleaner finish to keep them looking neat and tidy.

Can I Buy Just An Exterior Door Frame?

We price and sell our external door frames separately from our doors. This means that if you want to buy a frame on its own, you don’t have to invest in the complete kit – you can just get a frame.

Similarly, if you are investing in a new external door, you will need to purchase a frame as well as they are not supplied as standard.

Why Choose An External Door Frame From Aspire Doors?

All our timber door frames are made with the same high-quality materials as our oak doors, making them a worthwhile addition that keeps your door at its best. Whether you’re looking for a frame to fit your fire doors or a simple one to sit on the exterior of your home, we have the option to suit you.

We’re proud to provide excellent service to each and every one of our customers. So if you have any questions about any of our products, prices or guarantees you can phone us or fill out our support form for more details.
