Composite Doors in Cardiff

Do you need to upgrade your front door? There are various options available to you but none of them as preferred as composite doors. So why is this particular type of doorway the nation’s most popular and why would you consider it for your own home?

There are quite a few reasons to choose a composite door. For starters they look superb and there is a wide range of choice in the design and style to choose from. If you would like a modern overall appeal then you can certainly get just that, with contemporary designs to go hand in hand with the times. However, if you prefer the attractiveness of traditional front doors, there are Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian designs from which to choose.

As well as this you'll be able to decide on a colour that properly fits your household. Whether you select a traditional white or black front door, or might prefer the bold red, blue or green, the ultimate decision is up to you.

But how about the composite door’s other features? Along with a strong look and feel, you benefit from outstanding insulation and a sturdy, resistant installation. The construction of the door makes certain heat is not able to pass thorough and exit your property, decreasing your expensive energy bills.

Composite doors are constructed to resist impacts and the weather too, lasting for decades with essentially no upkeep. A GRP (Glass reinforced plastic) skin helps you to protect the front door being sure it continues to look great for a long time to come.

FAQs

how much are composite doors

Unlike several other complex multi choice products, composite door prices are no great mystery. However, it all depends on your personal preferences as well as your budget. There are a variety of customization options and extras, so you can easily select one that’s unique to your home. Composite doors offer you more colours, more styles, a greater choice of accessories as well as more glazing options. With the availability of a plethora of options in the market, it’s very hard to provide a precise price for a composite door as all the options play a significant role in the price structure.

• The Door’s Quality

Composite doors commonly comes with either a CFC-free insulating polyurethane (PU) foam or a laminated hardwood core. The price to be paid will depend on the quality of the composite with the laminated hardwood core being of more quality and ultimately, more expensive.

• Glazing Options

Between a coloured leaded glass double panel and a clear double-glazed panel there’s a huge price difference. And within these two extremes, there are also many other variables.

• Accessories

There are a world of choices when it comes to accessories in terms of the handle styles, letterplates, knockers and more. All playing a role in the price of the composite door.

• Locking System

A common feature of several composite doors is the multi point locking systems. However, the price, choice and security of the lock cylinder can be hugely different which also play a part in the price of the composite door.

• Location

Your geographical location plays an even more important part when you’re having your door installed. For instance, delivery in certain areas in the UK or finding tradesmen comes at a premium which is also shown in the price.

how to fit a composite door

If you’re going through new constructions or renovations and looking to change your old front door and install a brand new composite door, then you’re at the right place. Composite door fitting can be a DIY project but it’s essential to have the necessary training and experience before commencement. If not, we’d recommend you hire the services of a reliable professional to guarantee the best results and save yourself some time and money.Here, we’ll give a good insight into the composite door fitting process.

To get started, here are some of the tools that may be required - tape measure, hammer, stanley knife, crowbar, chisel, saw. Silicone sealant gun, spirit levels, electric drill ( including the hammer section), rubber mallet and 6mm socket spanner.

lPreparation

• Remove the existing door by rounding up the door frame firstly with a knife to reduce the possible damage to the wall.

• Cut through the door jambs.

• Remove each in two separate sections.

• Ensure the opening is level without any screws, mastic and filler.

lAlign Your Composite Door

• Ensure the sill of the door is level and flat.

• Make sure the frame is square and plumb in both planes.

• Bridge the cavity of the wall and cover the DPC

• Ensure that the frame is square. If not, your composite door won’t function as it should.

lInstall Your Composite Door

• Place the door in the frame.

• Hold the frame firmly in position with wedge packers

• Make sure the packers are positioned close to where the fixing will be placed.

• Make sure the jams are square and plumb in all planes by using a long spirit level.

• Secure the frame to the brickwork with the use of a drill.

• Place the fixings at the top and bottom of each hinge as well as each of the lock keep.

• Top fixings should be fitted 150mm and 250mm from each corner.

do composite doors fade in the sun

A composite door is a valuable investment any homeowner would be glad to make due to its numerous benefits. Not only are they super energy efficient and good looking, but also exceptional when it comes to keeping your house warm and guaranteeing your safety and maximum security. They come in wide range of styles, colours as well as personalization options, which makes them one of the most popular and strongest door you can find in the market today. However, the question that hangs over the mind of many potential investors is how fade resistant are composite doors? Would the visual appeal remain intact for a long period of time or fade away after a few years of exposure to intense sun?

The last thing any homeower would want to see is a priced asset looking dull and tired only after a couple of years after installation. Owners of timber doors worry about having to re paint every couple of years. UPVC door owners worry that their doors can, at times, start to fade when exposed to a strong and intense sunlight. So what exactly do composite door owners worry about? The simple answer is absolutely nothing! Proud composite door owners only have to do a quick wash with a warm soapy water as upkeep for their long lasting and durable asset. This is because composite doors are typically made from Glass Reinforced Plastic outer skin which makes them highly resistant to the element. So whether it’s raining heavily or the sun is shining intensely, the colours of your beloved composite door will not fade and will remain exactly the same way it was when purchased. No matter what the UK weather throws at them, the reinforced plastic skin and robust core ensures the door remains water tight and in top condition always.

what is a composite door

When it comes to the installation of an external door in your home or property, you’ll be indulged with a plethora of styles and options available in the market today. But as you would have imagined, not all of these options and styles are created equal. Not all can match the security and quality standards of a composite door. A door’s quality is greatly influenced by a wide variety of factors such as the materials incorporated as well as the overall design. For instance, going for a door made with low quality materials can as well be synonymous with leaving your door open while going out.

Composite doors are modern type of door used in homes in recent times. They’ve been design to combat the common flaws identified in singular material doors. The door puts together a perfect mix of materials which have been singled out due to their beneficial properties and effectively taps out the “old flaws. Composite doors are known to be highly resistant to weather conditions, no matter how extreme and unlike singular material doors, it does not react quickly to seasonal changes. And as a result of the insulating foam core of composite doors, they possess a higher thermal resistance than wooden doors.

Generally, a composite door is designed in such a way that makes it look as a wooden door featuring a very alluring wood grain. With the exceptional quality of the materials incorporated, the colours won’t fade, no discolouration will take place and ultimately, it doesn’t require much more than wiping with a damp cloth when it’s dirty as maintenance activity. In conclusion, composite doors are greatly designed modern doors which are manufactured using various materials. The premium quality provided by composite doors is unrivalled in the door industry.
