When it comes to home security, settling for anything less than a composite door may be a mistake. When it comes to security features composite doors are leaps and bounds ahead of the rest due to the manufacturing process. Super strong, durable and good looking too, composite doors are a clear winner when it comes to choosing a new front door or back door. You can even get composite barn doors!
Your front door is the first impression for visitors so do you want a wooden door that requires regular maintenance and may warp, a uPVC door that is all too common nowdays and may ever 'yellow' or a door that requires little or no maintenance and will look as good in a couple of decades as it did when you installed it?
Bit of a loaded question really was not it!
Composite doors are available in wood grain finishes, yes they look like real wood and are also available in a variety of colors and styles. They are color stable, meaning that their looks will last. You will never have to paint a composite door as composite door manufacturers seal their doors with a glass-reinforced-polymer skin, which has an estimated lifespan of at least thirty five years.
Strength? Think of the super strong materials that boats are made of and formula one racing car cockpits. An advertised lifespan of thirty five years is most likely on the very conservative side!
Got an unusual sized entrance? No problem, composite doors are all made to order, just about any size, any style and with or without glazing, which is available in several varieties, laminated or un-laminated, colored or standard glass, patterned or plain.
Want to do your bit for the environment? Composite doors are thermally insulated and can even come with eco-friendly frames made from recycled materials. They will trap more heat in the home than other types of door and so reduce your energy use, meaning lower heating bills.
Completely weatherproof, a composite door may be the strongest and longest lasting improvement that you ever make to your home. So When the time comes to replace your doors, think of the superiority of the composite manufacturing process.
Lastly, composite doors may cost a little more than uPVC doors or wooden doors but then, when you compare the features, you can understand why. After all, you get what you pay for.
