uPVC Doors | Composite Doors
To understand the difference between these types of doors and their wooden counterparts, you need to check out a guide & discover the properties of doors made of modern materials in comparison with traditional versions.
uPVC doors have a more contemporary aesthetic than wooden doors and are widely sought after for a number of reasons.
First of all, uPVC doors are less pricy than solid wood doors, and they also require little maintenance, being extremely resistant to wear and tear. They’re also better thermal insulators and they do not change shape in normal weather conditions.
Wooden front doors
Traditional doors made of wood and solid wood mixtures have been used since forever, yet the natural appearance, familiarity and simplicity of these doors keep losing points in favour of more durable and resilient materials of doors like uPVC.
Composite doors guide
Nonetheless, the quality of composite doors is superior to both of the above-mentioned materials simply because the use of a singular raw material promotes certain flaws that pertain to both wooden and uPVC doors.
The design of composite doors is thus not limited to a single material, hence excluding classic issues and boasting of an unparalleled strength and durability that makes this type of doors increasingly popular amongst property owners.
Composite front doors come with a new manufacturing approach, being made of a mixture of materials especially selected for their high advantages in order to exclude the flaws associated with traditional materials. This material combo makes them extremely resistant to breakage and weathering, they’re less prone to damages following seasonal changes and they’re also great insulators, having amazing thermal resistance due to their insulating foam core.
If you’re not willing to compromise the classic and natural wooden aspect in favour of a more modern appearance, do note there are composite doors especially designed to resemble the aesthetic of a wooden door, but with the added benefits of the materials used in their manufacturing process.
The superior make of composite doors give a whole new meaning to quality doors, composite versions requiring almost no maintenance at all and being extremely resistant to discolouring and fading.

What is a composite door made of?
As its name suggests, a composite door is made of a combination of different materials which although can take the form of a classic hardwood door, have the cost-efficiency, insulation and the resiliency expected from an uPVC door.
In understanding the benefits of composite doors over other types of doors, you need to learn more about the materials used in the manufacturing of these modern day door versions. Although the actual percentages of materials from composite doors differ from one manufacturer to another, there are certain materials that are more than likely to be present in the material combo associated with your door.
These include wood, PVC, uPVC, glass, insulating materials and glass reinforced plastic. The latter is basically fiberglass, and comprises the outer layer of the composite door, often receiving colouring and texturing treatments towards giving it an aesthetic similar to the one of a traditional solid wood door.
The selection of materials is based on the intended purpose of the composite door, yet all such doors have common qualities like great thermal efficiency, a multi-decade lifespan, little maintenance and the possibility of customising it to suit your décor requirements.
Composite doors range in price depending on the configuration of materials used, as well as their visual impact. The numerous advantages over other types of doors plus the numerous design options make composite doors an increasingly popular option amongst homeowners.
