It’s fair to say that for a while now, composite front doors have made a name for themselves as being somewhat of a tour de force as a choice of entrance solution for both homeowners and installers alike. Wholeheartedly one of the highest performing door styles currently on offer, memorable transitions in and out of the home are always guaranteed with a beautiful composite door.
Still not convinced? To help prove that making the switch to a composite door when replacing your existing entrance, we’ve put together 9 lucrative reasons!
1. The best door entrance security option
If you’re someone wishing to up the safety in your home, you can rest easy knowing that a composite front door is the very best choice. Featuring a solid core panel made up of multiple materials hence the name “composite”, when combined with the style’s multi-point locking, they provide the best security around.
2. The benefits of uPVC and timber combined
One of the main draws of a brand new composite front door is the ability for your home to enjoy the classic aesthetics of a vintage original timber door, without any of the required high-maintenance or re-varnishing to keep the door looking good. Normally this “lasses-faire” approach is one of the main advantages to sticking with popular uPVC, but now contemporary composite doors have this too.
3. Thermally insulating for a more comfortable home
Keeping a home warm and inviting should never be a chore, and now thankfully it isn’t any longer thanks to the many insulating qualities found with a replacement composite front door from Albion. Featuring a unique 48mm solid core slab that always assures heat has a tough time escaping, the acute combination of composite materials and weathertight frame makes for increased comfort.
4. An eclectic colour choice suitable for modern and classic homes
Whether you’re hoping to truly recreate the traditional feel of 19th century timber entrance doors by opting for a woodgrain pattern such as Vintage Rosewood or Eternal Oak, or are seeking something a little more modern, our composite doors can accomplish both.
5. GRP outer coating for harsh weather protection
GRP or Glass Reinforced Plastic has become a main stay amongst most composite door unit, acting as an additional protective layer to the outer panel which works wonders to keep your door looking great and performing well even in the event of harsh weather. This ensures that your composite front door purchase remains a worthwhile stylistic investment for years to come.
6. Classic style without the classic drawbacks
Although evocative of traditional timber door styles, whereas these original panels could often be prone to frequent rattles, draughts, and pesky cold spots, modern composite doors remain weathertight so they’re never an annoyance. No longer will door panels require vast amounts of re-varnishing either as an intuitive GRP scheme helps protect the unit.
7.‘A’ rated for energy efficiency as standard
Composite doors prevent the escape of heat as we touched upon earlier, rendering the home not only more warm and comforting but energy efficient too. The simple act of introducing a door that’s better at insulating, means that less energy is being wasted thanks to less reliance on central heating and electric. Our composite doors are some of the most energy efficient around, achieving an A rating.
8. Well suited for front and rear entrances
Although often solely thought of for use as a front entrance option, composite doors are also suited for use as a rear entrance solution whenever patio or French door styles aren’t wanted.
