When it comes to replacing your front door, a composite one offers better design and higher quality than its uPVC counterpart. This is because it incorporates a combination of materials, making it more robust and more resistant to heat loss. It also provides a much wider choice of colour options, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect look for your home.
What does a composite front door cost?
Aside from their attractive appearance, these doors are incredibly energy efficient. DM create an airtight seal that prevents cold air from entering your home, and they have double glazing or triple glazed options for extra insulation. They’re also more durable than uPVC and won’t need repainting as often as timber doors.
The leading manufacturers offer a variety of designs, colours, and hardware. Here’s a rundown of some of the top options:
Established in 2004, Solidor is one of the most trusted brands when it comes to composite doors, offering many different design options, high-quality hardware and locking systems, and a generous warranty package. They’re also the first to introduce new colour palettes and are constantly in touch with the latest trends. They also partner with Ultion locks for superior security and are advocates of sustainability through their ‘Green Promise’ campaign.
A favourite among installers, Apeer’s doors are A-rated and come with a multi-point lock to keep your home safe and secure. They’re also designed to withstand impact and feature a polyurethane core that’s up to twice as thick as a uPVC door, meaning breaking it is near-impossible.
