New Year, New Door!

8 reasons why composite doors are perfect for your Edinburgh home

You’ve probably seen our posts on Facebook and Instagram about our composite door services, but have you ever wondered what’s actually so good about getting a composite door for your Edinburgh home? Keep reading to find out the top 8 reasons why a composite front door will soon be on your wishlist in 2020. 

They look great

Composite doors are versatile. They can look like a traditional wooden door, or even be powder coated aluminium for a more modern aesthetic. Either way, they look fantastic and will seriously improve the kerb appeal of your home adding to its wow factor. 

You’ll be warm all winter long

Composite doors are fantastic for their thermal performance. Cold spots or draughts will be significantly reduced thanks to their highly insulted core. This also means that heat is a lot less likely to escape and the cold can’t get in, so you’ll also be privy to lower energy bills and a warmer home. 

Your home will be better secured

With secure locks and a strong thick door, your home is much better protected from possible intruders. The enhanced security of a composite door is another reason for its popularity. With secure locks and a strong thick door, composite doors offer superb protection against intrusion with an anti-drill, anti-pick, and anti-snap cylinder. Our composite front doors also meet Secured by Design accreditation. 

They are durable and strong

From a strong frame and an insulating foam core, the multi-layered components of a composite door provide strength and durability. This  makes it perfect for residential use in any environment. 

Maintenance is a breeze

Maintenance is super simple, or more accurately, basically non-existent. In short, one of the biggest draw cards of a composite door is that it doesn’t require costly or time-consuming maintenance to keep it in perfect condition. The glass reinforced plastic (GRP) skin won’t fade, wrap or crack, and will keep it protected against bumps and scratches. All you need to do is wipe it down with a soapy cloth once in a while to ensure your new door stays looking new for years to come.

Be creative with colour

With a beautiful and wide range of colours available, it’s easy to make your composite front door fit your home and style perfectly. After all, your front door is the first chance you’ll often get to make a good impression with visitors, so you may as well make it a bright one! Whatever your chosen colour is, it will stay as bright as the day the door was installed for many years to come.

Enjoy some peace and quiet

Soundproofing is not a main design criterion for a composite door, but it is an add on benefit. Only when you  come to install one, do you actually realise just how much of the outside world it blocks out, which makes it perfect for homes in busy areas or on main roads. Composite doors are fantastic for reducing unwanted noise so you can enjoy your home in peace and quiet. 

Weather resistant 

If only we were weather resistant too! (*Said while shivering*) In all seriousness though, composite doors have been built to last, which also means they are designed to be totally weather resistant. Perfect for Edinburgh, right? A composite door can withstand storms, icy temperatures, wet weather, and UV rays (for when we get lucky), so you won’t need to be replacing it every few years due to weather damage. Just ideal for our part of the world!
