Here’s Why You Should Choose a Composite Door
If you’re considering replacing your front door, you may have come across composite doors. Modern, durable and engineered from long-lasting, high-quality materials, composite doors come in a diverse array of bold, contemporary colours and designs. From urban modernity to countryside couture, there’s a little something for every home when it comes to choosing a composite door.
So what is a composite door? And why should you choose a composite door for your new entranceway?
What is a composite door?
As the name suggests, composite doors are engineered from composite materials, meaning they are manufactured from a range of different materials for heightened durability and strength. As a result, composite doors are long lasting with a lifespan of at least 35 years minimal required maintenance. With a rigid polymer frame, thermoplastic skin and insulating timber core, the multiple layers of a composite door provide a barrier against severe weather and greatly improves on the performance of standard uPVC and timber doors.
In recent years, composite doors have become increasingly popular here in the UK. Created to have the appearance of a traditional timber door, composite doors combine historical charm and bold colours with modern conveniences such as heightened energy efficiency and security.
Why should you choose a composite door?
Composite doors are a fantastic investment for modern and traditional homeowners alike. From secure back doors leading out to your garden or patio area, to stylish entranceways that enhance the kerb appeal of your home, composite doors come with a number of key standout features that make them an enduring and appealing option on the market.
So why should you choose a composite door for your home?
Composite doors are designed, engineered and installed with security in mind, with secure multi-point locking mechanisms and other highly secure features. They are incredibly strong and secure, and can protect your home and your family from the likes of any unwelcome intruders with a solid timber core.
At Majestic Designs, we install Endurance composite doors. Designed to meet the stringent requirements of Secured by Design, a police-backed initiative aiming to improve the security of UK buildings, Endurance composite doors are engineered with high security locking systems including the ATK 3 Star Diamond Cylinder, meaning they are anti-drill, anti-pick, anti-bump and anti-snap for superb burglar resistance. They are also manufactured with a durable timber core which is highly resistant and durable – even when confronted with a sledgehammer!
When it comes to selecting a composite door, there is no shortage of stylish options with plenty of different colours and designs to choose from. Hardware includes Chrome letterplates, antique black lever handles and polished brass knockers. There is also a diverse array of glazing styles and textures including decorative glass and bevel patterns.
Composite doors are also low maintenance – the occasional wipe down will keep your door looking as fresh, bold and stylish as it was the first day it was installed.
Composite doors boast exceptional energy efficiency ratings with excellent insulative capabilities and weather resistance. By repelling even the most adverse of weather conditions, composite doors can keep your home warm, dry and comfortable regardless of the season and save you the hassle of costly utility bills.
Due to their heightened energy efficiency ratings, composite doors are also great insulators against noise pollution. They can significantly reduce any exterior noise, which for obvious reasons can be hugely beneficial – especially for homeowners in busy cities who may live near busy roads and high foot traffic.
Due to the stylish flair, heightened security and exceptional energy efficiency ratings composite doors bring to a property, installing one can add kerb appeal and value to your home. Although selling may not be on your mind, upgrading your entranceway can make your home more attractive to potential buyers later down the line, as well as make your home the talk of the neighbourhood!
