What is a composite door?

A 'composite' refers to something that is made from a combination of materials. The same goes for composite doors. This type of door is most often made using a combination of timber, uPVC, metals and glass-reinforced plastic. This mixture of materials improves the quality of the doors, making them stronger and more secure. Composite doors often use uPVC elements to build them. This material has a high u-value, which means it is very energy efficient. Double glazed glass can easily be fitted into uPvc composite doors, which keeps cold drafts out and heat from escaping indoor areas. This keeps your energy bills lower and can also improve the overall value of your house.

Those building new homes or undergoing home improvement projects tend to opt for composite doors if they want a secure, durable and cost-effective door. Our range offers all these options, while also making a stylish, attractive addition to your home.

How much does a new composite door cost in Manchester?
