Composite Doors in Edinburgh

Do you wish to replace your front door? There are lots of options available to you but none as well-liked as composite doors. But why is this type of doorway the nation’s preferred and why should you consider this for your own house?

There are a lot of reasons to decide on a composite door. To start with they look superb and there is a wide range of choice in the style and design to choose from. If you want a modern day appeal then you can get just that, with contemporary designs to go together with the times. However, if you prefer the attractiveness of traditional front doors, then there are Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian designs to pick from.

On top of this it is possible to pick a colour that perfectly complements your household. Whether you invest in a classic white or black front door, or would prefer the daring red, blue or green, the final decision is yours.

But why don't you consider the composite door’s other features? As well as a strong appearance, you benefit from excellent insulation and a long-lasting, resistant installation. The construction of the door makes sure heat is not able to pass thorough and leave your home, bringing down your expensive energy expenses.

Composite doors are manufactured to resist impacts and the weather too, lasting for decades with practically no upkeep. A GRP (Glass reinforced plastic) skin helps you to protect the front door ensuring it continues to look great for many years to come.

FAQs

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.

how much is a composite front door?

Composite front doors offer a wide range of benefits which includes numerous style and colour options, increased security, personalization options, durability as well as low maintenance requirements. However, with so many options available in the market, it’s also expected that the prices would vary greatly depending on many factors. These factors include the colour, style of the composite door, glazing option, door furniture as well as security locks.

• Colour - More popular and basic colours like white, blue and brown black are manufactured in mass, making them a bit lesser than the unusual colours as they usually go through an expensive colour mixing process.

• Style Of The Door - The most common and popular door styles are manufactured in large quantities and consequently, the cheaper option than the more complex styles. A good example is the six panel door that features two frosted glass inlays will definitely cost more than the four panel plain white composite door.

• Glazing Option - The glass type, design and panel size all play a huge role in determining the price. The more complex your glazing option is, the more money you’ll have to pay.

• Door Furniture - Several composite doors come with bespoke handles, letterplates and knockers to achieve your desired finish. The furniture additions on door can also play a huge role in influencing the overall cost of your composite door.

• Security Locks - Multi point locks typically comes as a standard. However, you might need to determine the type required by your as the quality and type can vary considerably.

Generally, to have a basic style composite door installed, you’ll have spend about £850 and above. And depending on the design requirements and glazing features you select, this price can increase significantly.
