Back Doors

Your back door is usually the second entrance to your home and is not the main point of entry for guests and visitors. It opens onto a more private space, your garden or patio.

When choosing a back door you generally don’t need to worry as much about concealing the inside of your home so the choice of designs and styles is much wider. You might like to consider a French door or a sliding glass option to give you a great view of your outdoor space and let natural light into your house.

External back doors need to be durable and weatherproof just like front doors, but you can afford to experiment with different design elements and sizes. Vibrant Doors stock a wide range of back doors to suit your style and choice. Browse our range of different door styles and discover the right fit for you.

Composite Doors

A composite door is versatile, ensuring both aesthetic appeal and security. Composite doors are durable, low-maintenance, and can be tailored to suit your personal taste.

Just like composite front doors, we have plenty of styles to offer at great prices. These secure doors are great for your peace of mind, and they're energy efficient too.

Timber Doors

External timber doors are great entrance doors, providing a sturdy and secure choice that's popular for many homes. They can be painted in many colours so you can get your property looking its best.

Open up your exterior with a sliding door, or opt for a classic wooden alternative in oak or hardwood. Choose a single door or even a pair of double doors, and select your door furniture to complete the look. You can be assured of great quality when you buy from UK experts Vibrant Doors.

uPVC Doors

You can find uPVC options in our range of French and bifold doors, which can be a cost effective option for your patio area.

Thermal Efficiency

Replacing an old external door can help to save on your energy bills. With modern materials and correct installation, you can minimise heat transfer to keep your home comfortable throughout the winter.

Doors fitted with energy-efficient, clear or textured glass can significantly reduce heat loss, ensuring a better-insulated home. Our back doors are also manufactured with solid and engineered cores to provide great thermal performance.


External doors with a solid core like our timber and composite options provide a secure entrance point for your home. Our exterior doors are double glazed with toughened glass

To enhance back door security, install a deadbolt lock, upgrade to a smart lock, add a strike plate, and consider a door sensor or alarm. Reinforcing the door frame and hinges with metal plates can also prevent forced entry. Regularly check and maintain all security devices for optimal protection.

Frequently Asked Questions


How much does it cost for a new back door?

The cost for a new back door typically falls between £100 and £1,000. This price can vary depending on the material, such as uPVC, aluminium or wood, and additional features like glazing or enhanced security elements.


What type of door is best for a back door?

The ideal back door depends on your space and preferences. French doors offer a classic, open feel, perfect for ample spaces, while sliding patio doors save space and suit modern aesthetics. Both options provide outdoor access with visual appeal and can enhance your home's natural lighting and flow.


What are back doors called?

Back doors, often referred to as rear entrances, are secondary access points typically found at the back of a house. They can also be termed as service doors or side doors, if they're located on the side rather than directly at the back. These terms are synonymous and widely recognised in home design and architecture.


Should a house have a back door?

It is not mandatory for a house to have a back door; building codes vary by location. However, multiple exits are often recommended for safety reasons. Depending on local regulations, additional egress points might be required for emergency access. Including a back door can offer convenience and improve home safety.
