When it comes to choosing a new door, people often find it hard to decide between timber, aluminium, uPVC and composite. To make your decision easier, we are going to introduce you to one of our best-selling products; the composite door.
Composite doors are made from a mixture of materials to produce one of the strongest doors on the market. Depending on supplier, composite doors are either made from GRP with a wooden core, or GRP with a foam core. Both versions result in a high quality, thermally efficient product.
When it comes to security, composite doors are unbeatable. They are Impact resistant to prevent bumps and snapping, as well as picks and drills from intruders. All composite doors are PAS 24 2016 enhanced security accredited, giving you peace of mind that your home is safe. On top of all these features, our composite doors come with a high rating as standard and always meet building regulations.
It is well known that timber doors can have issues with swelling, rotting, cracking, peeling and warping. A composite door is triple sealed and waterproofed with glass reinforced polymer (GRP) to prevent this from happening, and therefore extending its life and reducing maintenance costs.
In regards to the life of different types of doors, wooden doors are anticipated to last 15 – 20 years, depending on the wood type, and generally tend to need maintenance throughout their life span. uPVC is expected to last 20-25 years, with low amounts of maintenance; and composite doors have the longest anticipated life of 30 years with very low maintenance costs in those thirty years.
When it comes to design, a composite door has plenty of opportunities for personalisation. There is an extensive range of colours available, from bright pink to dusty grey; 18 different styles to choose from; decorative glass options to compliment your door design; and finishing touches such as letter places, spy holes and knockers. Whatever you choose, a composite door has you sorted when it comes to aligning the front of your house to your unique tastes and style.
