Why Composite Doors Are A Thing Of The Future

30 Sep 2021

If you haven’t already seen or heard about composite doors, where have you been hiding? Over the past 15 years, there has been an increase in the number of companies that are offering composite doors, leading to an increase in them in streets near your home.

What Are Composite Doors?

Composite doors are formed using a selection of materials, from a solid timber core, glass-reinforced plastic, uPVC and aluminium, to name a few common materials. These materials are composited together to create a solid door.
Composite doors are often easier to spot in comparison to alternative doors. They often boast a more solid colour finish, whether this is a bright and bold colour, or a more subtle and pastel finish.

Are They Secure?

Composite doors have been applauded for their increased level of security over other styles of doors. This includes enhanced security features, such as the core of the door being made from a solid piece of timber before being coated in the composite materials to increase hardiness.

How Long Do They Estimate To Last?

With composite doors still being relatively new the expected lifespan is only really a guideline. Currently, experts are saying a conservative 30 years, however, they anticipate that they will still be a high quality and solid door past this.
One of the biggest questions, when it came to the lifespan of these doors, was the expected lifespan for the solid timber core. However, thanks to the composite that has been moulded around the core, this should not deteriorate as a standard wooden door would otherwise.

Personalised To You

One of the biggest reasons that composite doors have taken the UK by storm is the mass ability to personalise them to suit your style and home. From choosing a colour from the ready-made list of colours, to considering a colour match door.
It’s not just the colour that you can personalise. You can choose from a vast selection of window configurations, from small squares to diamonds and even a selection of positions. Not to mention the glass that sits in them.

With many great options available for you to choose from when it comes to your new composite door, we have developed a dedicated online Door Designer for you to see how your future door could look. This allows you to select different options and see how they will all look together before ordering the perfect door for your home.

From great personalisation, increased levels of security and an outstanding estimated life expectancy, it’s not hard to see why Composite Doors are the doors of the future.
