Whether you have designs planned for your project to protect the planet or you just want to save money on your energy bills, making environmentally conscious decisions for your home goes way beyond choosing double glazing. By making the right choice when it comes to doing your bit for the environment, reducing your carbon footprint is a great place to start. Your front door is essential for ensuring the sustainability of your project, as most of a home’s heat escapes through its doors and windows. This way, by understanding the importance of the materials you use for your projects, you can make an eco-friendly home improvement.
Why choose wood for your external wooden doors?
Wood offers innovative design options, resource efficiency and provides a low-carbon, eco-friendly alternative to your traditional building materials. It’s also a cost effective solution, as there is no need for man-made carbon capture technology, which is the process of capturing and storing carbon before it’s released into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels.
Our timber doors provide ultra-low – U-Values at less than 0.8W/m2K and the construction of our doors are designed to be as thermally efficient as possible, retaining heat and resulting in reduced energy bills. This is because timber is a poor heat conductor meaning heat doesn’t travel through it very well, so naturally, our timber doors are the perfect choice for keeping your home at an optimum temperature all year round.
Choosing an external wooden door for your eco-friendly home improvement project helps to reduce the CO2 in the atmosphere and contributes to slowing climate change. Trees capture CO2 from the atmosphere and store it as carbon, so when it is harvested and the wood from the trees are used for products like our entrance doors, they store the carbon for its entire lifespan.
Using more wood helps to decarbonise construction and when you build with wood, you are building with carbon that’s been kept away from entering the atmosphere. This means that you aren’t contributing to the use of standard materials that require lots of CO2 to be made. Making use of timber in your eco-friendly home improvement project has a positive impact on more sustainable built environments and encourages the forest industry to plant, grow and manage their trees in a more sustainable way.
External wooden doors VS PVC doors
External wooden doors are stronger, more secure and more thermally efficient than PVCu alternatives. At Türmacher, all our doors are crafted using advanced German engineering offering outstanding performance, making them the perfect addition to your eco-friendly home improvement project.
When compared to PVCu doors, you can’t ignore the many benefits that timber doors provide. Timber is a natural product, that uses fewer carbon emission in manufacturing than PVC and can last as long as 60 years. Our wooden external doors offer more impressive security, thanks to the BUVA IsoStone thresholds, which are high in strength, quality, insulation and weatherproofing.

At Türmacher, we can install our timber entrance doors with the BUVA IsoStone threshold. The technology of our timber doors combined with the high performance threshold gives us and property owners the confidence that the entrance door will look beautiful and perform effectively for years to come.
Finishing our timber doors with this high performance timber door threshold means there’s no risk of it warping or twisting, thanks to its weather resistant qualities, dimension stability and GRP structure. The BUVA IsoStone threshold won’t rot or absorb water as it is designed to prevent rot from making its way up the jambs to give your entrance doors a longer lifespan and enhanced durability.
Offering a complete solution for timber doors, the weather protection and air tightness is increased as BUVA timber door thresholds use Deventer weather and compression seals. This means that it will endure the test of time against the unpredictable British weather and everyday wear and tear, leaving your timber entrance door safe, secure and efficient for many years. Alongside this, BUVA thresholds feature an insulated thermal break, which prevents cold bridging beneath the door, keeping your property at an optimum temperature all year round thanks to the low U-Values of just 0.89 W/m2K combined with airtight seals.
BUVA IsoStone is the perfect choice for home projects where a low threshold is required, as it has a 15mm upstand and is Part M compliant – which is the Building Regulation focusing on accessibility and ease of use for new builds and refurbishments. The state-of-the art BUVA IsoStone timber door threshold improves accessibility for wheelchair users, children, pushchairs and those with limited mobility. Low thresholds are also becoming more popular for adding a seamless finish to projects as they add a sleek, modern aesthetic.
Strong and secure
BUVA IsoStone timber door thresholds feature a high strength twin-chamber glass reinforced plastic (GRP) structure that is practically unbreakable. This works with our robust timber doors to keep any unwanted intruders out, providing effective resistance and peace of mind.

This stunning timber door replacement project is in our home village of Kingscliffe. Our client was looking for a door replacement that would let more light into the hallway and do this stunning stone-built detached home justice.
Mrs Reed said:
“Living locally to Kingscliffe, we knew about Kingscliffe Joinery and their Türmacher Door brand. They have a good reputation for quality timber products.
“We moved into the property in December 2019. The house is only 7 years old, so there were very little changes we wanted to make other than the front door! The style the previous owners had chosen was very ugly, it didn’t give good kerb appeal to the house – it was just very out of place with the rest of the design features.
“We approached Paul and the Kingscliffe Joinery team to help us. As they’re just around the corner, we called into the workshop for a chat and had a really good conversation with Paul about what we were looking for. My husband had seen a few doors he liked whilst he was out and about on his bike, so Paul asked us to take some photographs of them so he could get a real understanding of the kind of thing we were looking for.
“The team were friendly, helpful and accommodating and brilliant at putting together a design that incorporated our ideas, as well as making great suggestions that could only come from experience! We were planning to add a letter to plate to the timber door slab, but Paul’s suggestion of having a letterbox on the wall instead works really well for the house.
“Unfortunately, shortly after we had finalised our design, the Covid-19 pandemic hit and lockdown meant that the workshop closed. Once Kingscliffe reopened, there were a few more delays with materials, but Paul and the team kept us in the loop with what was happening every step of the way.
“Our installation went ahead on the hottest day of the year last summer! The installation team had a bit of a job on their hands as the old door proved tricky to remove but they did a fantastic job. Everything was left clean and tidy and the following day the team came back to take care of some final details.
“We’re really pleased with our new door, and maybe it’s just village life, but we’ve even had compliments from our neighbours on how great it looks!”
The timber door which was designed for this project features three obscured glazed panels to let in the light from outside whilst maintaining privacy. The classic timber finish in Clear Lacquer gives true traditional character to this beautiful stone-built property in Kingscliffe.
