Why choose Composite Doors
Composite doors offer the look and feel of a timber door without any of the inherent problems , such as cracking, bowing or twisting. They have a high density foam core, which offers excellent strength and thermal performance, and a durable Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) skin to protect from the elements. GRP is the same material that is used to make the hull of lifeboats - demonstrating just how tough it really is!
And unlike timber, composite doors are incredibly low maintenance - an occasional wipe over with a damp cloth will restore it to its original finish.

Most PVC doors have a 3 or 4 point lock, but our composite doors have a 5 point lock, meaning it is one of the highest performing on the market today.
