Why A Composite Door Beats Any Rival Door

January 24th 2017

The replacement door market has become increasingly crowded in recent years with multiple door solutions of varying degrees of quality available to buyers. A low quality front door can put your home at a very real risk of burglary, which is why it is essential to have an entranceway that offers security and stylishness in equal amounts.

Prior to the growing popularity of composite doors, UPVC doors were the favoured door choice for most homeowners, largely due to their weather resistant and maintenance-free exterior. People had become fed up of the continuous upkeep required to preserve the lifespan and performance of a traditional wooden door i.e. sanding, varnishing, and repainting. However, there’s no doubting that the thickness and toughness of a hardwood door outdoes the much slenderer UPVC door when it comes to strength.

So, UPVC doors and hardwood doors both have their good points and bad points. If only there was a happy medium. Step forward the composite door.

A composite door is manufactured from various materials which helps give it a resilience and enduring beauty that you just won’t get from any other door type. Underneath that handsome outer skin is a mixture of wood and numerous other insulating constituents, also aiding with energy efficiency. For this reason, you will find that purchasing a composite door generally requires a larger outlay than buying a conventional UPVC door, but the extra investment is most definitely worthwhile.

In addition to the composite entranceway, you will also find composite French doors, patio doors and stable doors offering the exact same standard of performance.

We have composite doors to suit every type of home at Solidor – period residences, new-builds, cottages, townhouses.
