Composite Doors for Durability
Your front door is the most commonly used door so needs to be durable.
You want your door to look fantastic but it has to be tough enough to withstand battering by inclement weather, being bashed by the pushchair and slammed by the children. It always without fail, manages to get scraped when you carry large objects in so your door needs to be tough. For your peace of mind, you want to know that your new composite door will stand up to family life.
Front Doors and Back Doors
Homeowners used to choose back doors that matched the windows, typically just plain white with a window. That makes sense when you consider that it’s not seen by everyone in the same way as front doors. Nowadays, with the wide array of options to choose from, our Cardiff customers seem to prefer a stylish back door and will often choose one that compliments the front door and looks attractive from the grade.
This customer chose an Elephant Grey Endurance door for both front and back. The back door could also have been a stable door which is particularly useful if you want the airflow of an open door but need to keep young children and pets safe.
Despite the importance of a front door for kerb appeal, it’s often the last thing on the list when homeowners think about home improvements. Unless you are replacing the door before selling, your choice is personal. There is a lot of attention on Instagram and designer blog posts to brightly coloured doors but if you are thinking of selling in the short term, you may want to consider choosing a colour for mass appeal and saving your dream door for your next home.
A new front door can not only improve the appearance of your home, but it can also help to reduce energy bills and coming home all the more simple and enjoyable. It’s actually one of the cheapest things you can do for maximum benefit.
Side Panels for Your Front Door
If you have a space for your door that is wider or taller than needed, you have further choices to make.
Will you design the door in the middle with panels on both sides, or choose to have the door to one side and a single panel?
The space you have behind the door and which way the door opens may influence your choice.
You have the same design options for your panels as for the door so we will be able to match perfectly.

We offer a choice of gold, silver or white handles, letterboxes and door knockers all made from stainless steel. This not only means that they match perfectly but give you ultra long-life and trouble-free performance for up to 25 years. Our composite doors do not fade with time.

What is a Composite Door?
A composite door is made from a mixture of materials, including wood, PVC, and insulating foam

A composite door is the most popular choice for a new front door.
A door that not only looks aesthetically pleasing, which, let’s face it, is essential for most homeowners but has other essential qualities: durability, security, easy maintenance, and excellent thermal efficiency. It’s pretty much everything you could possibly want in a door.
How are Composite Doors Made?
The core of composite doors is made of wood and insulating materials protected by other layers with an outer layer made of weather-resistant material. The different materials are glued together under high pressure. Composite doors are usually thicker compared to other types of doors.
Because they are made from a combination of materials, composite doors are extremely durable, strong and great looking.

The most important characteristics you look for in a door are strength and durability. Composite doors are long-lasting and thermally efficient.

Are Composite Doors Secure?
The main reason why we need doors is for the security they provide to our homes. When you think of security, composite doors are the only thing that you need for your home.

So, if you’re looking for doors that can withstand any kind of weather, composite doors are the way to go!
What are the Benefits of a Composite Door.
When something new comes on the market, it’s usually because it’s a better product. Whilst wooden doors and UPVC doors are excellent choices, if you’re replacing a door, it only makes sense to opt for a door that has better qualities, and a composite door has been designed to account for the common flaws experienced in single material doors.
A combination of materials is used to create a composite door, which has many beneficial properties. These include:
A super sturdy and rigid door frame thanks to the solid composite sub-frame. This tends to be around 1.7 inches thick and often contains an outer layer of hardwood.
Extra stability due to the outer frame consisting of UPVC as well as galvanised steel enforcements around the edges.
High resistance to weathering or any weather-based damage that unfortunately is attained with wood: warping, twisting or cracking.
Very little maintenance is required as it is not prone to discolouration. A composite door will not have to be repainted, whereas a wooden door needs to be treated every five years. It is not prone to discolouration. Simply give it an occasional wipe with a damp cloth and it’ll look as good as new.
Excellent thermal insulation. Composite doors are injected with an additional layer of this in the form of a polyurethane foam core. Say hello to a cosy home!
Variety. A composite door is available in various colours and designs to suit your home. Like the look of a wooden door? You can get the look with our woodgrain effects.
Increased security. Composite doors can be fitted with a lock system to prevent break-ins.
