A buyer’s guide to composite doors

Composite doors are an excellent choice for homeowners looking for a door that is both strong and durable enough to stand the test of time. Made from a combination of materials such as UPVC, wood, and glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), they offer many benefits over traditional doors manufactured from a single material. In this buyer’s guide, we cover the most common questions we get about composite doors.

How secure are composite doors?

In short, the answer is, very secure. They are notably stronger than other doors on the market including timber. They are much harder to break into due to the strength and built-in locking systems. Of course, you can also opt for multiple locking points along the frame for extra security. 

Do they have good insulation?

Yes! Another bonus of composite doors is they make drafts a thing of the past with their excellent insulation properties. They come equipped with a foam interior making the door stand up against all the elements, in turn, reducing your energy bills. They are also great for keeping out noise with their soundproofing capabilities. 

What styles are available?  

They come in a range of different styles, from traditional to contemporary so it’s important to choose one that complements the aesthetic of your home. They make a great front door but they are also brilliant for bifold, patio and french doors too! They come in a range of different colours to add personality and match what you are looking for. 

Are composite doors hard to maintain?

The good news is, no! Composite doors need minimal maintenance compared to traditional timber doors. They don’t need to be treated and you won’t find them warping or cracking either!

Are they reasonably priced?

We think so, yes! Composite doors are a much cheaper alternative to timber doors and because of their low maintenance and insulation properties they make a really good investment.
