What are the Benefits of a Composite Door? Let us tell you.
There are many varieties of doors available in the home improvements industry and it can be quite complicated deciding on the right one for your home - whether that’s with aesthetics, cost or functionality. However, despite the array of doors on offer, Composite Doors come out on top for worthy, investment recommendations.
For people who know what a Composite Door is, they probably remember them from their hefty price tag – unfortunately they aren’t the cheapest of doors, but this is a minor fee as the benefits you receive from such doors are worthwhile and long term.
Why choose a composite door over PVCu?
For one, your average PVCu, aluminium or wooden door lacks solidity. A typically foam filmed construction only leaves a small section of the door sturdy whilst the rest retains malleability reducing the security of your door and therefore your home.
However composite doors have been designed with a 5-chamber profile, which is 100% recyclable; so not only does this door keep you and your home safe, the door is completely environmentally friendly and sustains your health due to their lead-free build.
Thermally, most basic doors are adequate at sustaining inside temperatures but they add to your energy bill as they haven’t the firm build that composite doors have - which enable them to greatly, reduce energy costs by preserving heat effectively.
With a composite door they prevent draughts from entering your home and are tolerant to weathering and constant usage, unlike PVCu or wooden doors - which deteriorate in functionality and appearance over short periods of time.
Most doors can be easily scratched or marked causing their appearance to worsen; but with composite doors they remain robust through colour-thermo plastic skins, which protect and maintain the look of the door and its pigment.
Bespoke, beautiful ranges of composite doors
With composite doors you can also achieve a realistic wood, grain effect - which isn’t available with PVCu doors due to their shimmer. With authenticity and natural beauty - composite doors really do provide an exciting and beautiful asset to any home.
In terms of security investing in a composite door is your best option, not only are they are impenetrable, but they also retain their strength for years on end so you can be rest assured that you, your family and possessions are safe. PVCu, wooden and aluminium doors can be easily cut in less than 90 seconds, making them a potential target for thieving criminals.
With composite doors you can furthermore modify them for easy mobility access, such assistance includes ramps and lowered sills, which enable wheelchairs or people with reduced mobility to easily enter or exit the home effortlessly. It’s easy to believe that a PVCu or wooden door will do a good job, however although cheap to buy, such a poorly structured door will raise your energy bills through lack of heat conservation. You wont just lose valuable heating, but they will need replacing soon enough as they have not been designed to last – so you can expect to be constantly maintaining the door especially during the colder months.
