Composite Doors – Front and Back Doors

If you’re considering composite doors for the front or rear of your property, we can help. Choose your perfect door from a wide range of designs and colours to suit the style of your home.

What are composite doors?

GRP Composite doors are made of a selection of materials including a timber core, UPVC and internal insulation to name a few. Each material is chosen for its specific merits and pressed and glued together to make one of the strongest and most durable door types on the market.

Why choose a composite door?

The main reasons for choosing composite for your front or back door are:

1. Security

Highly secure, composite doors can incorporate steel reinforcement and include the most secure Secured by Design locking systems, along with the option for keyless Smart Locks. Any glass fitted will be laminated, providing a further level of security.

2. Thermal Efficiency

Composite doors are usually 44-48mm thick, which is considerably thicker than 28mm UPVC doors. They are also built with insulating materials inside, keeping the heat in and cold air out. This increased level of energy efficiency helps to reduce your energy bills.

3. Individuality

There are a multitude of door styles, designs and colours including black and white to choose from. You can make your composite door design as individual as you are!

4. Kerb appeal

If you’re thinking of selling your home, or just making some enhancements, a composite door is the perfect way to add a new look and make your home stand out.

5. Long-lasting

Composite doors have an average life span of 30 years and are less likely to warp, rot or fade. Our composite doors are all made in the UK from high quality materials.

6. Low Maintenance

Composite doors are easy to maintain and often only require a quick clean and oiling of hinges.

7. Value for Money

Due to being more energy efficient than the UPVC version, composite door prices work out to be comparatively cheaper over their life span. You are also more likely to need to replace a UPVC door, so it’s worth investing in a composite one.

Composite Doors with Side Panels

If you’d like to increase the width of an entrance, or are replacing an old front or rear door, we can provide matching composite glazed panels. These side panels come in a variety of designs including full composite panel, full glass, or half and half. There are also several glass designs to choose from. This can be a lovely way to transform your hallways and incorporate additional light and space.

What’s the difference between a UPVC door and Composite door?

UPVC doors are made purely of plastic, whereas composite doors are manufactured from a number of different materials which are then compressed and glued together in high pressure conditions.

Composite doors are thicker that UPVC doors, being 44mm compared to 28mm. A quality composite door can be made from superior materials which makes them strong, secure, durable and weather resistant. Composite doors are also available in a variety of colours, whereas UPVC doors are usually white.
