The benefits of a composite front door

Traditional wood and, afterwards, uPVC front doors used to dominate the market, today however, composite doors combine the strength and security of wood with the weather-resistance and low maintenance of uPVC. Composite doors are made up of a variety of materials specifically selected for their beneficial properties and the result is a door that is more secure, more economic and better at keeping out the noise.

Extra security

Composite doors are made from a variety of sturdy materials stuck together under high pressure, resulting in a tough front door that’s difficult to break. This makes them the perfect choice for a more secure home, being just as strong as or more so than wooden doors whilst being impervious to weather-damage and warping, like uPVC.

Functionality and style

A composite front door is an excellent way to boost the kerb appeal of your home, as it is the first thing people encounter and interact with. Composite doors come in a massive range of colours and designs and it’s possible to have the desirable wooden front door effect without compromising on life-span or maintenance requirements, as they are protected by a weather-resistant outer skin. Try our composite door visualisation tool to create your own composite front door and see how it would look on your own home.

More Insulation and Quieter

At the core of a composite door is a layer of insulating foam in order to improve energy efficiency and prevent your door from losing heat. As a bonus, all the extra padding serves to reduce noise pollution too!
