Benefits of Composite Doors

April 22, 2014

First impressions are important and when it comes to your home, the front door is the first thing people will see. When considering what type of door that you want for your home, you should consider strength, maintenance, security and looks. A popular option is UPVC doors, which are strong and relatively maintenance free. However, their appearance can be very generic and leave little room to give your home the wow factor. Wooden and glass doors can provide the look you are looking for, but lack the security and low maintenance that other doors provide. Another option is composite doors, which are rising in popularity and can give your home all the style and security that you need.

What is a composite door?

Composite doors use a range of materials, including timber, polyurethane foam, aluminium inserts and an outer skin of glass reinforced plastic (GRP). This creates a strong and easily customisable door that has many benefits. Some of them include: Weather resistance - The GRP layer on the door makes it highly resistant to any type of weather, such as wind of rain and will not crack like wood can. The aluminium inserts also help to prevent warping and twisting over time. Resistant to denting - The GRP layer is extremely durable and will resist scratches and dents, ensuring that they can be used for many years. High level of insulation - The polyurethane foam core provides a warm and cosy home and helps to protect the environment and lower your bills. Easily replace the glass - Composite doors are available with glass inserts to make them more visually appealing. If the glass is broken, it can be easily replaced without having to remove the entire frame. Never have to be painted - It is recommended to treat wooden or varnished doors every 5 years. Whilst composite doors have the appearance of painted wood, the colour will not fade and only requires the occasional wipe to keep it clean. Available in a wide range of colours - The GRP layer can be injected with any colour and finished in a range of styles. This allows for a painted wood effect to match your home. The interior colours can also be left white to match your décor Security! – Composite doors are a fantastic way to protect your home from intruders. The core materials used absorb impact and are incredibly tough. The GRP layer is virtually unbreakable and resistant to dents and scratches. This creates a formidable barrier against those who wish to gain unauthorised entry. Add value to your home - In a competitive property market, you need you house to stand out from the crowd. Give potential buyers the best first impression by providing a front door that is strong, secure and looks good.
