How to Choose the Best Composite Doors
Providing security, durability and style, composite doors are becoming a homeowner’s choice for their versatility. But with so many designs, colours and hardware options available, finding the perfect composite door for your home can be a challenge.
Choosing the right composite doors is crucial to the overall look of your property and should never be taken lightly. A reputable composite door company will offer a wide range of options to suit both the modern and traditional styles of homes. But how can you be sure that the product you receive is the best on the market?
As a general rule, the most expensive is not always the best and this is especially true of composite doors. It’s important to check that the product you choose has been tested to high standards and is backed up by an insurance backed guarantee. This will give you peace of mind that your investment has been well worth it.
The majority of our composite doors are made by Solidor, the UK’s most popular manufacturer. The range of Solidor composite doors includes both classic and contemporary design, with a selection of glazed panels and solid panels. For example, our Richmond composite door is a contemporary statement piece with 4 square glazed panels and our Sussex, Sutherland and Bedford composite doors all have large glazed windows to flood your home with natural light.
One of the key features of a composite door is that it can be fitted with the latest technology in security. All our composite doors are fitted with a euro cylinder lock which is a keyhole lock with a high security rating. This means that the lock cannot be picked, snapped, ‘bumped’ or drilled out easily, meaning that your family and possessions are safe.
As with uPVC doors, composite doors have the advantage of being weatherproof and energy efficient. They provide great acoustic insulation, which reduces the amount of noise that can be heard from outside your home. The GRP skin on the front of the door also helps to minimise heat loss, ensuring that your living spaces remain comfortable throughout the year.
In addition to their state-of-the-art design, composite doors are also incredibly hard-wearing and long-lasting. They won’t swell, warp or crack and are resistant to scratching and denting. In fact, if they are installed by a professional and properly maintained, they should last up to 35 years.
When you buy a composite door, it will be manufactured from the highest quality materials, designed and made to your exact measurements for a perfect fit that eliminates draughts. Each composite door is hand sprayed in your chosen colour with a hard-wearing finish that is guaranteed to last up to 20 years. Some suppliers will offer a bespoke service, allowing you to choose from a range of colours on the RAL chart. However, we would urge you to use caution – the RAL colour can be applied to any surface, so the quality of the door itself could be compromised. composite doors neath
