Just like new windows, a beautiful new entranceway can have a significant effect on your Scunthorpe home, transforming its appearance and increasing its value – as well as enhancing its energy efficiency and security. Your front door is the first feature of your home that guests and visitors will see, so it’s always a good idea to make an outstanding first impression. For this reason there are a number of decisions to be made when choosing a replacement door.
There’s no doubt about it – colour matters. It’s as much part of your windows and doors as the glass and the frame. Colour can change everything: it can be bold and forceful, or subtle and elegant. It can shout or whisper. It can blend in or stand out. Colour’s an expression of you and what you want your Scunthorpe home to be.
Our range includes finishes that are timeless or traditional, beautiful woodgrain effects, accent colours and on-trend shades. Pick something to enhance your home’s building materials or to suit the Scunthorpe scenery. Choose a different finish for indoors and outdoors. Communicate with colour and show off the real beauty of your Scunthorpe home.
It’s important that locks, handles and hinges – even frames and glazing – do their job and protect you and your family. All Swish windows and doors conform to PAS 24: 2012 which covers enhanced security performance requirements for doors and windows in Scunthorpe and in the UK. Look out for features like multi-point locking and egress hinges which allow a window to open to 90o for emergency escape.
You may want to consider products that have Secured By Design accreditation – this is an Association of Chief Police Officers’ initiative that aims to design out opportunities for crime in Scunthorpe and the rest of the UK. These products have extra security features built in and are available from some of our Swish Authorised Installers.

All of our window and door profiles are covered by a ten year guarantee against manufacturing defects. Your Scunthorpe installer will offer a guarantee on the installation. Make sure that this guarantee is “insurance-backed” and offered by a DTI approved insurer. This means that if the installer goes out of business – for any reason – you are still covered.
