The Perfect Door For Your Home: Wood, UPVC or Composite Doors?

The Perfect Door For Your Home.

Are you considering buying a new door for your home? Then you’ve come to the right place. With so many different options available it can be difficult to decide which type of door to choose. Can’t decide between wood, UPVC or composite doors? Here you can take a look at the pros and cons of each.

Wood

Wood doors offer a warm and welcoming entrance to your home. Find out if these attractive doors are the right choice for you:

Pros

Providing you keep on top of treating and maintaining a wooden door, it should last for more than 100 years. So, if you want to buy a door that will last and are prepared to take good care of it, a wood door is perfect.

The beauty of a wood door is that you can paint it different colours, so if you fancy a new look in a few years’ time, you can do so without replacing your whole door!

Cons

However, if you don’t have the time (or the patience) to treat and maintain a wood door, this isn’t the right choice for you. Wood doors have a tendency to twist and warp if they do not receive the TLC they need due to them being vulnerable to the elements.

UPVC

UPVC doors are a classic choice. If you want a more modern look for your home then this stylish door may be the one for you:

Pros

These doors are a dream. Why? Well, they require no painting or staining so they’re very low maintenance! UPVC doors usually come with multipoint locking to ensure complete security, so not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they’re practical too. What more could you want in a door?

Cons

If you change your mind like the weather, a UPVC door probably isn’t a good move. It’s extremely difficult to change the colour and style of a UPVC door once it has been fitted, so if you’re one to regularly give your home an exterior makeover, this door is not the one for you.

Composite

Pros

Composite doors can be made to look like real wood, yet they don’t warp or require repainting like wood. So, if you like the appearance of a wood door, a composite door is ideal.

These desirable doors are typically supplied with multipoint locks, plus they’re very well insulated, making them an effective choice for your home.

Cons

Unfortunately, the price tag is slightly more expensive. However it’s worth spending a bit more on a quality product like a composite door.
