Are Composite Doors Worth The Money?

Posted by | March 27, 2020

A new front door is always going to be a significant expense and it is important that the door you select delivers real value for money.

Composite doors are increasing in popularity as more and more homeowners become familiar with their features and advantages. However, with prices of £800 and upwards, you want to be sure that a composite door is well worth the money. Let's take a look at their main features.

Solid construction.

Composite doors are strong and solid. This is due to their expert fabrication from a variety of advanced materials including a solid timber core, which are layered and adhered together under pressure. The combination of materials within a strong metal frame will withstand physical force and provides the hard-wearing day to day use you need from your front door.

Market leading weather resistance and insulation.

Composite doors are an excellent choice for an energy efficient home as they are excellent at insulating your property against heat loss and keeping cold weather outside. The resilient Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) that seals these doors is weather proof and adds to the longevity of your door.

Robust security.

Your composite front door is engineered to provide superior resistance against forced entry to your home. The metal frame of these doors integrates high quality multi-point locking mechanisms that ensure your door is always properly closed and secured.

Easy maintenance.

Unlike timber, which requires hours of sanding, varnishing and coats of paint, composite doors possess a coloured and textured outer layer that retains its finish and only needs a wash or wipe down. Despite its low maintenance needs, composite doors can last decades, with minimal degradation in appearance.

A range of styles and finishes.

You can choose from a kaleidoscope of colours for your door, as well as wood-grain textured finishes that are beautiful and long lasting. Composite front doors come in a range of traditional and contemporary styles including classic Victorian four panel and Georgian styles as well as cottage doors and stable door designs. Composite doors can also integrate glass for a superb finish that will be just right for any property.

Exceptional longevity.

Composite doors currently lead the market for longevity being comparable only to wood in the number of decades it will last. Your composite front do should be capable of delivering at least 20 years of service. This makes a composite door a competitive investment, despite the up-front cost.
