Why Choose Composite Doors?

Choosing new doors for your home can be challenging. With so many products on the market, it can be difficult to know where to begin.

This article will help by providing all the information about composite doors that you need to make an informed decision.

Composite Door Benefits

Composite doors offer a range of excellent benefits that make them a more suitable choice than timber doors.

The following examples show why so many people around the UK choose a composite door over other options.


One of the most significant reasons that people may choose a composite door is because they are one of the most secure options on the market.

Doors at UK Composite Doors have a solid timber core and come with Secured by Design approved and accredited ABS lock systems.

These state-of-the-art locking mechanisms provide excellent security to protect doors against lock picking, drilling, bumping and snapping.

This also makes it difficult for thieves to gain forced entry through a composite door, which works as a deterrent for would-be burglars who might then look for less protected homes.


You will want your front door to be welcoming and add kerb appeal to your home. All our doors are available in a range of styles and colours, allowing you to design the perfect front door for your home.

Low maintenance

Choosing a composite door over a traditional timber door also has other great benefits. Composite products are always low maintenance and can help to save you time and money in the future.

Timber doors require staining, painting, and weatherproofing on quite a regular basis. None of this is necessary with composite front doors, however. When you buy a high-quality product like one of UK Composite Doors' doors, it won't rot, warp, or fade.

Energy efficient

Energy efficiency is an excellent feature of composite doors. Most composite doors will contain an insulating foam core or timber core.

This can be an excellent selling point, improve the home's efficiency and decrease heat loss in winter. A thermally efficient door will help keep the cold out and heat in during colder months, reducing energy bills - and also reducing your carbon footprint.

If you have invested in insulation, double glazing, and a good heating system, you won't want your front door letting you down. If you want a warmer home, a composite entrance door is an ideal solution.


The other reason you might want to invest in a new composite door is its durability. You will need an entrance door that can withstand the UK weather and regular use. Many homeowners find that composite doors are more than up for the challenge.

Composite doors are long-lasting, won't suffer from heat damage, and won't be affected by wood-boring pests.

This durable option also offers excellent weatherproof qualities that prevent leaks and annoying draughts.
