It can be difficult to know what material is best for your front door. Many people like the look of a traditional timber door for their residential property but these doors are usually more expensive and need a lot of maintenance to retain the look. A cheaper option is uPVC doors, but these are not as attractive and can sometimes be less secure.
Composite doors have the best of both worlds to offer. They are designed with the freedom and knowledge of using various materials and therefore do not suffer the same faults that other wood or uPVC products do. Composite doors look akin to other doors but they have a longer lifespan and tend to require much less maintenance. If you live in a conservation area or you have a period property then these doors will add to the character of your home.
Composite doors are not vulnerable to the elements like wooden doors that may peel, swell and warp over time if not properly cared for. You may pay slightly more for composite doors in comparison but the life and quality of the doors will far outweigh that of wooden doors which is why composite doors are a clear favourite. Their tough structure makes them very durable and the strong surface ensures it will not scratch or fade easily. You can choose from a larger variety of colours and a selection of finishes so you really can add that personal touch to suit your home.
Wooden doors are a pretty secure option, however, as mentioned above, they require a lot of maintenance to keep them secure and up to scratch. Composite doors do not have the same issue and come with a high security locking system meaning you can feel secure in your home at all times. They provide brilliant thermal and noise insulation meaning you could even save a few pennies on your heating bill! Composite doors are a great choice for your home.
