What is a composite door?

Composite doors were introduced to address the flaws of uPVC and timber doors. Composite doors eliminate many of the flaws that arise from both uPVC and timber doors, and this alone justifies the higher price you must pay to install composite doors. Unlike uPVC and timber doors that are constructed of a single material, composite doors are ‘composed’ of many different materials such as PVCu, timber, Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP), fiberglass and polyurethane foam. When compressed together under high pressure, these materials offer properties that eliminate many of the problems presented when doors are composed of a single material.

Why buy composite doors for your Liverpool home?

If you are considering buying composite doors, you may wonder why composite doors are worth buying in the first place. Here, we provide a compelling answer to this question. We provide convincing and practical reasons why composite doors outperform both uPVC and timber doors.

Composite doors are much more energy efficient than softwood alternatives. In fact, composite doors are around 9 times more energy efficient when compared to softwood doors. Composite doors also beat timber doors when it comes to maintenance. Unlike timber doors, composite doors will not fade or crack with aging. Composite doors are coated in coloured GRP which requires zero maintenance on your behalf.

Composite doors are filled with insulating foam. This makes composite doors much more energy efficient than both timber and uPVC doors. Also, unlike timber doors, uPVC doors are not going to warp, shrink or expand over time or when they are exposed to dry or wet conditions.

Why are composite doors in Liverpool more expensive?

Composite doors are more expensive than uPVC and most wooden doors because of the material that is used during the manufacturing process. These materials are essential because they improve the energy efficiency and durability of composite doors when compared to wooden and uPVC doors. These materials include fiberglass and thermal foam injected within the core of composite doors.

Can composite doors be painted?

We do not advise you to paint your composite doors. The door colour will run through the skin of your composite door during the manufacturing process, and not merely painted across the outer surface. This means the colour of composite doors does not fade with aging. All you must do to maintain your composite doors is to clean them with a sponge. You are also advised to regularly oil the door hinges.

How warm are composite doors?

When purchasing composite doors, you must be aware that not all composite doors are created equally when it comes to energy efficiency. When you purchase composite doors from Bebington Glazing, we educate you on the various models of composite doors available at different price points. This allows you to make an informed buying decision. Essentially, composite doors with a foam filled core and a uPVC edge band improves the energy efficiency of composite doors. These features offer a 20% energy efficiency improvement when compared to timber doors.

Composite doors vs. uPVC

Many people looking to invest in composite doors may already have installed uPVC doors. You thus may wonder what the key differences between composite and uPVC doors may be. The key difference between the two is material. uPVC doors are plastic through and through. In contrast, composite doors are composed of many different types of materials. These materials are pressed and glued together using pressure. The materials that are used to produce composite doors are strategically selected due to their properties. Together, these materials eliminate many of the problems that occur when doors are composed of a single material such as timber or plastic.

Also, composite doors are thicker than uPVC doors. uPVC doors are typically 28mm thick, whilst composite doors are typically 44mm thick. Also, composite doors offer enhanced security features when compared to uPVC doors. Composite doors are built with a super tough structural frame. The frame is further enhanced using a glass-reinforced plastic.

Composite doors also wins when it comes to design choices. uPVC doors are available in golden oak, white and rosewood. In contrast, composite doors are available in many different colours including black, red, green, blue, oak, rosewood and white.

Can composite doors be made to measure?

All styles of composite doors we supply may be made to measure. Simply provide us with the desired measurements and we shall ensure your composite doors are made exactly according to your requirements. Alternatively, contact us today to arrange for our representative to visit your property to ensure these measurements are correct before your doors are manufactured.

Composite doors disadvantages

The key disadvantage of composite doors is cost. Whilst a uPVC door costs around £400, a composite door will cost around £700-£1000. However, composite doors offer energy efficiency advantages over both uPVC and timber doors. This means you will save money in the medium term when you invest in composite doors because less heat will escape from your home. This means composite doors essentially pay for themselves over the duration of their lifespan.

What are composite doors made of?

Below, we outline exactly what materials are used during the production of composite doors:

  • PVCu outer frame
  • Galvanised steel used to reinforce the frame
  • Hardwood inner frame
  • Polyurethane foam core for superior insulation
  • Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) grained surface – this prevents the door from warping due to seasonal changes

How secure are composite doors?

Around 70% of burglars gain access to properties through the front door. This means it is essential for you to invest in a front door that offers maximum security. All doors offered through Bebington Glazing meet the ‘Secured by Design’ directive.
