As a popular alternative to traditional timber and uPVC front doors, composite doors offer the best combination of strength, durability and thermal performance. They are low maintenance, weather resistant and don’t rot or warp – which means they will stay looking good for 35 years or more. In addition, they are not susceptible to draughts and gaps like wooden or uPVC front and back doors, making them one of the most energy efficient options on the market.
Composite doors are constructed from a mixture of materials, including glass reinforced plastic (GRP) and polyurethane foam. This gives them superb insulation qualities, ensuring that your home will be kept warmer in winter and cooler in summer. They also provide exceptional levels of security, with state-of-the-art locking systems helping to prevent intruders from entering your home.
The GRP skins are depression moulded, replicating the look of a wood grain for a beautiful kerb appeal. These are fused to an internal frame made from uPVC and layered inside with another frame of hardwood to create a door with superior stability and rigidity. They also don’t swell or warp like timber doors in hot weather or crack and peel like uPVC ones, which means they require minimal maintenance, just the occasional wipe down with a cloth.
Our composite doors are manufactured in the UK, giving them a higher level of quality and performance than cheaper imports. They are highly durable and weather resistant and can be supplied in a range of colours, finishes and glazing styles to match your interior decor. They are a great way to add extra kerb appeal and increase the value of your property.
Unlike uPVC or timber doors, which can be damaged by harsh weather conditions and require regular maintenance to keep them in tip-top condition, a composite door is tough and durable enough to stand up to even the most adverse British weather. They will not rot or warp, and they are resistant to rain, wind, frost and hail. In fact, they can withstand winds of up to 90mph and won’t be prone to draughts and gaps like a traditional wooden door, which will swell in warm weather.
A bespoke composite door can transform your home and enhance its kerb appeal, creating a welcoming entrance to your property. You can choose from a wide selection of contemporary and classic door designs, as well as a wide choice of colours and glazing options, to create the perfect look for your property.
