10 benefits of composite doors

Written by | Return to Latest News

Composite doors are the superior choice when it comes to taking care of your home and family. Crafted using a variety of materials and using the latest advancements in technology, it’s not hard to see why they’ve risen to prominence over the last few years. Composite doors feature a remarkable insulating and secure foam core intelligently enclosed by a Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) skin.

This intelligent design makes composite doors resistant to weathering and virtually maintenance-free, so your door will look its best for many enjoyable years to come.

With a range of design options, composite doors always impress, but what are their benefits?

Whether you opt for one of our contemporary composite front doors or a more traditional one; you can guarantee that it will add a striking appearance to the front of your home.

Traditional composite doors are ideal for older properties or for adding a classic twist to a more contemporary property. Traditional composite doors are perfect for homeowners looking for a higher class of front without compromising on the classic appearance of their home. Utilising the benefits of uPVC and double glazing with a more classic look makes these doors an ideal solution for many homeowners.

Contemporary composite doors are ideal for modern homes, but they can also add an eclectic twist to more traditional properties. Contemporary composite doors are perfect for homeowners looking for a high-class front door that compliments the ultramodern appearance of their home.

2. Composite doors are strong and durable

With an insulating foam core and strong outer frame, the multi-layered composition of a composite door provides strength and resilience. This makes it perfect for residential use in any environment.

An expanded mesh reinforcing is inserted into the super-strong, high density, core alongside an extremely strong vertical steel bar that together far exceeds all Police-approved security standards.

3. Composite doors require little to no maintenance

One of the biggest draws of a composite door is that it doesn’t require time-consuming and costly maintenance to keep it in perfect condition. Contrary to traditional timber doors, composite doors are not prone to not fading, warping, or cracking and you don’t need to worry about repainting. A simple wipe down with a damp, soapy cloth will keep your door looking as good as new.
