Composite Doors Pros & Cons

Composite doors have started to gain traction for many reasons, mainly because they offer something completely different contrasting it to UPVC and timber counterparts. Listed below are the pros and cons of owning a composite door. 

Pros – Security – There is nothing stronger than a composite door. There is considerable thickness to the door frame, so if anyone did try to force it open when its locked then they are likely to do themselves some damage. 

Aesthetics – It has a similar appearance to timber frames so people often confuse the two, as composite is partly manufactured from wood and that is why you can see the same patterns a timber door would usually exhibit. 

Maintenance- free – A composite door requires far less attention than a timber frame, in fact you barely have to do anything to preserve it. You will only occasionally have to wipe it down with warm soapy water. 

Cons – Cost – Although a composite door can be higher priced than say a UPVC door, it will more than likely actually turn out saving you money in the future in terms of energy costs.

Have been dealing with Andy and Kim in the main at C&A windows for a few months now and the service overall has been great, quick quotes, lead-times inline with expectations and well presented and packaged goods. Great responsive aftersales assistance when called upon. Would recommend C&A for sure.
