In recent years for example, composite doors have steadily grown in popularity here in the UK. Available in a variety of different colours and styles, modern composite doors combine the visually appealing aesthetics of a traditional timber door with heightened security and energy efficiency.
Perhaps most pertinent, composite doors boast a long lifespan with minimal maintenance while also effortlessly enhancing the kerb appeal of your property. So what is a composite door? And how can it be used to create a grand entrance for your home?
What is a composite door?
Composite doors can create a beautiful grand entrance and as a result, have become increasingly popular in the UK in recent years. Engineered to have the appearance of a traditional timber door, composite doors are manufactured with a number of different modern materials for the purpose of increased durability and strength. Featuring a resilient timber core and thermoplastic skin, composite doors are revered for offering heightened security from both the elements and the likes of any unwelcome intruders.
Requiring very little maintenance and excellent longevity spanning at least 35 years, a composite door is suitable for any accessway but is particularly suited to the front of your home for a little extra kerb appeal. Combined with new windows engineered from uPVC or aluminium, composite doors can bring your home together and create an elegant yet effortless look.
The benefits of a composite door
Suitable in both historical and contemporary properties alike, a composite door offers a number of different benefits for the modern homeowner.
