6 Reasons To Upgrade To A Composite Door
Renovating your home? Looking to ramp up security after an attempted break-in? Or maybe you want to improve your home’s thermal efficiency following the recent increase in energy bills?
Composite doors have soared in popularity in recent years in the UK, and it’s with good reason.
Here the profile bending specialists at ArcOframe explain what composite doors are and why you should consider installing them for your home.
What are composite doors?
A composite door boasts a classic look with modern advancements. It combines the benefits of various materials to provide a strong yet secure entrance to your home.
Composite doors typically have a solid timber core and uPVC, laminate or GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic or fibreglass) surround them. This is to protect the wood against the wind and rain, ensuring your new front door stays looking its best for as long as possible.
Available in a choice of shapes, sizes and colours, you could opt for a traditional square door or an arched door to break up the monotony of straight lines. Either way, you can trust that your door will be robust and make a great first impression.
The benefits of upgrading to a composite door
1. Add kerb appeal
Composite doors are guaranteed to give your façade a more striking appearance, whether your property is contemporary or traditional.
Whilst traditional designs often suit older houses better, they can also add a classic twist to modern homes. Similarly, contemporary composite doors are perfect for new builds and make an eccentric addition to more traditional properties too.
If you ever decide to put your property on the market, you want your front door to stand out from the road and attract prospective buyers. And a composite arched door can really help you give your home the ‘wow’ factor!
2. Strong and durable
Composite front doors have an insulating foam core and sturdy outer frame, making them extremely resilient. Thanks to their multi-layer construction, they are ideal for homes in almost any environment.
Something you may not know about these doors is that an expanded reinforcing mesh is inserted into the high-density core, along with a strong vertical steel bar that exceeds all police-approved security standards. Therefore, composite doors are reliable and secure.
3. Easy to maintain
Timber doors can be a nightmare to maintain – not to mention expensive. However, composite doors provide the timeless look of timber without the upheaval.
Unlike their timber counterparts, composite designs won’t fade, warp or crack. You needn’t worry about having to repaint them either.
All it takes is a quick wipe down with a damp cloth and soapy water to keep your composite doors looking as good as the day they were installed. You can’t argue with that, can you?
4. Reduce noise
Do you live on a busy street? A composite door is a brilliant choice for noisy areas, allowing you to enjoy your home without any noisy disruptions.
Both rectangular and arched composite doors provide high thermal and sound insulation – up to 9 times more than a conventional timber door!
You could go for double or triple glazing to increase the noise blocking ability of your composite doors. As a result, you and your family will benefit from a comfortable living environment.
5. Protect your home
Composite doors have weather-tight seals that will keep your home safe, no matter what the weather throws at it.
Draughts will no longer be a problem, helping you stay warm and comfy all year round and saving you money on your energy bills.
Aside from protecting your property against the elements, these doors can also deter intrusion – especially when they’re fitted with anti-pick, anti-snap or anti-drill cylinders.
A composite front door’s solid timber core and durable outer layers offer impact resistance, making it impossible for burglars to gain access to your property.
6. Guaranteed to last
As standard, composite and arched doors come with a 10-year guarantee. However, when professionally installed, they can last significantly longer. That’s why it pays to use a reputable company like us to measure, manufacture and fit your new doors.
