Composite doors – what are they?
You will have heard of uPVC, aluminium or timber doors but what about composite doors? A door material that is rising in popularity, composite doors are an excellent choice for any home. Here, we take a look at the advantages of choosing a composite door over other options.
What are composite doors made of?
A composite door is made up of a number of materials. The door contains layers of material that have been glued together under immense pressure. A manufacturing style like this creates a solid material. Doors made from one single material tend to have some weaknesses. Each layer of a composite door has been chosen to combat any potential problems.
Composite doors come in a variety of options. They usually have a solid timber or foam core, glass-reinforced plastic, and uPVC within them. Each of the materials is put together under high pressure to create a robust and secure door. The finish on a composite door is usually made to look like a timber finish. A solid timber door can be more costly and prone to warping over time. A composite door won’t shrink or warp and usually costs less solid timber doors.
Why choose a composite door for your home
The choice of doors and windows for a home can sometimes feel overwhelming. A composite door is an excellent choice for many reasons. The benefits of a composite door include:
- Durability – resistant to weathering or fading
- Low maintenance – no need to repaint or stain the door as you would with timber
- Energy-efficient – composite doors have higher energy ratings
- Robust and solid – able to withstand bumps and knocks without damage
- Secure – the strength of a composite door and frame makes it more reliable than a timber door
- Huge choice – the finish on a composite door comes in a choice of colours and designs
A composite door is a modern solution to the issues experienced with some other materials. The strength and durability of the door mean it won’t change shape over time. It will always fit properly and remain secure and robust. The material layers within the door make it energy efficient, and the durable finish stays looking good as new. Other materials, such as uPVC, are very secure, but composite doors provide even more security. You can have peace of mind that your family and property are safe and secure with this type of door.
