The benefits of a composite door for your home

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 appealing and will increase your kerb appeal

The aesthetic appeal is what people notice first when looking at the front of your home. Your front door is what people first see and approach so it’s important that it impresses and the composite doors do the job. With resistant GRP skin, the colour will never fade. 

These doors have the timber look without the maintenance and with modern performance. Fine detailing adds to the authenticity of the composite door.

2. Energy saving – no draughts

Do you feel a cold draught coming through your current front door? The installation of a composite door will put an end to that and better insulate your hallway.

Our composite doors have superbly low U-Values and by keeping out draughts and promoting heat gain, they will keep your energy costs down. During the lifespan of a composite door, you could save a huge amount of money.

 

The thermal performance of our composite doors is second to none. With a highly insulating core, your home will no longer suffer from cold spots or draughts.

  1. Composite doors are intrusion resistant

The use of several materials to manufacture a composite door (including a proportion of wood) makes a composite door frame incredibly thick, much thicker than your ordinary door frame.

Having a thicker door will vastly reduce the chances of someone breaking into your property as this thickness will make it practically impossible for someone to force a locked composite door open.

4. Their strength makes them ideal for a door

These doors are extremely durable and rigid so provide more than enough protection against intrusion, the elements as well as regular wear and tear.

5. Maintenance – Free

Essex Composite Doors won’t need repainting and the GRP skin keeps it protected against bumps and scratches. This durability will ensure that your new door stays looking good forever.

6. They give your home the wow factor

Composite doors really look the part! You could easily mistake a composite door for a traditional timber door as the frame has a very prominent and realistic wood effect.

This stylishness won’t diminish over time either, eliminating the need for maintenance. When the door gets dirty, you will only need to take a wet cloth to it to remove any marks – the paint brush can be left alone.
