Composite Doors

Composite doors are made from a variety of different materials, are designed to cope with just about anything, offering insulation, security, durability, and a long service life. When choosing a new front door for your home, you may have a decision to make between hardwood and uPVC. Both materials come with their own advantages and disadvantages, and it can be difficult to balance out a need for a low-maintenance, long-lasting material along with strength and security. Fortunately, there is a third way. Here are some of the advantages you can expect from choosing a composite door.


  • A long service life


Composite doors offer many of the advantages of both hardwood and uPVC doors without any of the drawbacks. Unlike hardwood doors, composite doors are highly resistant to weather and wear and tear, and will not require constant repairs, varnishing and weather sealing to keep them in good condition. In addition, composite doors are more resistant to changes in heat and moisture, which can cause problems with hardwood doors as they expand in heat.

  • Strength and security

Generally a superior and more versatile option to hardwood doors, composite doors also offer the strength associated with solid wood, providing security as well as durability. The range of different materials used in construction means that each one is chosen for its special properties, providing the best of all worlds.

  • Style and substance

You won't have to compromise with the look of your door, either - the wood effect finish on composite doors will keep them looking great, and unlike hardwood, they'll be a lot more resistant to scratches and wear and tear, and won't fade easily. As well as being durable, they'll also stay looking great for years, just like the day they were installed.


  • Energy saving

Composite doors also act as an economic option despite the increased installation and construction cost. While the cost of the door may be higher, over time a composite door is often a cheaper option, as many of the materials used are chosen for their insulation properties, meaning that you can save a lot of money on heating bills, as they help to keep your home warmer than a standard hardwood door.
