When you’re looking to upgrade your front door, a composite door is one of the best choices for security, style and longevity. Unlike uPVC, composite doors are made from a combination of materials and therefore are incredibly strong and durable. They will not rot, warp in the heat or swell during rain. They also look far better than uPVC and need very little maintenance to keep them looking good.
A composite door can withstand most methods of attempted break-in. They are incredibly difficult to breach, with multi-point locking systems to make them near impossible to break into. This means your home will be much safer from unwanted intruders, especially as all glazed areas are fitted with 4mm toughened safety glass.
With a range of colours to choose from and many different styles, it’s easy to find a composite front door that perfectly matches your home. You can even customise your composite door with a choice of side panels and transoms, giving you the perfect entrance to your property.
Composite doors are made from a GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) outer skin, which is spray painted with a colour at the factory and then baked with infrared to seal it in. This means your composite door will never need painting, and will not chip or peel. This is in contrast to uPVC doors, which will need a regular paint job, and are prone to pitting and scratching.
The core of a composite door is filled with warm thermal polyurethane foam. This helps to insulate your home and improve energy efficiency. It also gives the door a robust feel and helps it to resist draughts. All of this makes a composite door a great choice for your South Wales home.
Despite being more expensive than uPVC, a composite door will often pay for itself over time. Not only will you save money on heating bills, but you’ll be less likely to spend on replacement windows and doors in the future. They’re long-lasting, durable and come with a guarantee to back this up.
When choosing a new composite door, it’s important to choose a quality supplier to ensure your purchase is backed up by the manufacturer. It’s also worth noting that most guarantees will only be valid if the door and frame are properly maintained. This should include an occasional clean with soapy water to stop hardware pitting and a yearly oil of the hinges.
There are a number of excellent brands to consider, including Solidor and Endurance. Both of these manufacturers offer a fantastic selection of designs and are among the most respected names in the industry. Solidor are the first to launch new colour palettes and are always in touch with changing trends, while Endurance are well known for their high-quality locks and hardware, as well as Ultion cylinders.
