Composite doors fitted in and around Tolworth

The classic white uPVC door is still a popular choice for homeowners, but the composite door is fast becoming commonplace in our homes. With additional strength, and a look similar to timber, composite doors can really improve your home’s kerb appeal.

A composite door is essentially a solid, heavy door with a multi-point lock, finished with a wood-like appearance that looks like a classic painted door. Unlike wood, composite doors will never need to be treated, and it’s almost impossible to gain entry since the doors are highly impact resistant. They are designed to resist scratching, and they never need a new coat of paint. Each door also has its own energy efficiency rating.

After the cold winters we’ve had lately, it pays to have a door that keeps the heat in. A composite door could be just what you need.

Choosing a door

There are several factors to consider when selecting the right door, and we can help you through the process.

First, there’s the shape and design. Composite doors come in classic styles and more contemporary designs suitable for new builds and modern properties. The more modern style doors have triangular, semi-circular or square windows, along with some highly interesting shapes and curves.

Traditionally styled, classic doors tend to have much more decoration around the glazed parts, and more glass to let light in, so they are a better bet for properties where you want to maximise natural illumination. Modern doors look fantastic in newer properties, and their unusual looks are bound to attract the eye.

If you want even more light in your hallway, opt for a glazed frame around the door. We can put glass to either or both sides, and even above the door itself, providing you have the space.

Colours and finishes

Composite door manufacturers offer a range of colours for a standard price, including black, white, red, green and blue, plus a classic wood effect that mimics natural timber. You can have different colour finishes inside and out, plus a different colour (normally standard white, or wood grain) for the frame.

Composite doors come with a variety of glazing options for privacy and decoration. We offer plain and patterned frosted glass, plus coloured glass in shapes or floral patterns that add charm and interest to your property.

Finally, we can recommend optional upgrades to your door, such as coloured handles, numbers, a letterbox or a remote-operated lock. While these upgrades are optional, they could make you door much more useful and functional for the family.

Buy cheap – buy twice

Composite doors are more expensive than uPVC because of the additional security features, and the wider range of colours and options. Don’t be tempted to try to cut corners by buying a door second hand. Once you purchase the door and frame as a unit, you cannot change it, and buying second hand means you’ll end up with a door you simply can’t use.

For the best results, and the best home security, choose a door that comes with professional measurements and fitting as standard.
