The right front door can create and maintain a great first impression. There are many different types of doors on the market which you can install in your home, however the sheer variety of standards of quality, design and security features differ can make the product and installation choice seem more difficult than it needs to be. Every homeowner may have different priorities when it comes to their choice of door, from the look and overall style, to the security features and level of weather resistance.
So, what is a Composite door?
A composite door is made up of a combination of materials which have been selected for their beneficial properties. Combining materials aims to eradicate the flaws that are found in singular material doors, making this type of door the newest and smartest design on the market (as well as one of the most popular). They have a ridged polymer frame and insulating foam core, made up of multi-layers which provide high resistance to weathering and will not react to seasonal changes. These doors come in a variety of woodgrain effects which is not only made to be damage and impact resistant but can also help the door suit any type of property, whether that be traditional or modern.
What are the benefits of a composite door?
Durable and weather resistant
Composite doors are a solid, robust and an extremely durable solution which has a high resistance to weathering, their strength makes them perfect for a door. Their thermal performance is excellent, with high resistance and an insulating foam core to keep the cold air out they prevent all types of draughts. A composite door will typically achieve A energy rating, preventing your energy bills from getting out of control during the winter months and helping to remain environmentally friendly.
One of the biggest bonuses to having a composite door are that they are virtually maintenance-free. The door has a GRP (glass reinforced plastic) surface which will not fade, warp or even crack. You will not need to paint or varnish your doors; all we advise you to do is wipe it down every now and then to keep its appearance shining and looking great all year round!
