Reliable entrance doors with subtle differentiating factors

Despite common misconceptions, there are plenty of intricate differences between composite and uPVC entrance doors outside of the obvious materials they use. From levels of tweakable style, energy performance, and affordability, we’ve put together an outline comparing the benefits of each to paint a much clearer picture for homeowners.

Composite doors – Vintage looks with contemporary appeal

They allow UK homeowners to enjoy the look and feel of authentic wood, introducing thermal and security performance levels every 21st century property is expected to maintain.

  • Multi-layered core for high security and thermal retention
  • Outer skin of GRP to reduce fading and improve weather defence
  • Classic aesthetics with modern performance
  • Extremely low maintenance
