Composite doors are everywhere nowadays. You see them advertised and maybe even some of your neighbours have them. But what are they and why should you choose them for your home?
What is a composite door?
A composite door is made up of a combination of materials. This means it can improve on the performance of standard uPVC and timber doors. With a rigid polymer frame and insulating foam core, the multi-layers provide barriers against the cold and severe weather. As well as their unique interior, their exterior also makes them stand out. These doors have a woodgrain effect GRP (glass reinforced plastic) skin that’s damage and impact resistant. This lets them fit in perfectly in traditional as well as modern homes.
What are the benefits of a composite door for your home?
1. They’re attractive and will boost your kerb appeal
