Installing a composite door

Overall both UPVC doors and hardwood doors have issues that go far and beyond what we might expect to accept as a compromise but fortunately there is a far better option with far fewer trade-offs; installing a composite door.

Understanding the difference

There are many different types of doors available today. However, not all are built to the same standard as a Solidor composite door. There are numerous reasons for the differences in door quality; from the materials they use to the overall design and choosing a door made from poor materials with a cheap design can leave your home exposed to threats. This is not to say that every home should have a reinforced steel door, just that it is possible to find a great compromise between style, strength and price.

Being ensured

The main thing to understand about composite front doors is that they are made from multiple materials which ensures great strength, durability and looks. The core of a composite door can contain wood, insulating materials and many other layers which are all protected by a weather resistant outer skin. The only real trade off with installing a composite door is that you can expect to pay a little bit more than you would for a standard UPVC door however, the benefits far outweigh the additional cost.
