Composite doors are the latest addition to the door industry, and have been designed with the knowledge of the flaws of previous doors. Because of this knowledge and the freedom of using multiple materials, composite doors have been designed to phase out old flaws and create a whole new standard of door.
Composite Doors – Phasing out common flaws
Unfortunately, many homeowners will experience flaws when it comes to their front or back door. The effects of seasonal heat changes are an unavoidable issue when it comes to doors made from a singular material. Reinforcing wood or uPVC doors can sometimes weaken the door, causing other issues. Another general issue is security – how can you keep your home secure without spending a small fortune on expensive additions? Without these additions, other doors are vulnerable to potential attacks. There are many other common flaws that people experience.
The design of composite doors has enabled these flaws to be taken in to consideration, and effectively phased out.
The GRP skin prevents the composite door from warping during seasonal changes, preventing the door from both sticking and causing draughts. The thermal core provides further energy efficiency benefits.
The GRP skin of composite doors is able to withstand a higher level of force than most other doors.
The GRP skin provides a maintenance-free finish. No sanding and painting is required to keep the door protected and looking fresh. It also won’t fade or discolour over time like other doors.
Composite doors have a longer lifespan than most doors, increasing the cost efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of the door.
Here’s what that might mean for you if you’re considering changing to composite…
