When it comes to deciding on your front door, there are a range of factors you will want to consider, from security through to strength and style. If you’re considering a composite front door, you may be wondering how it compares to other door types, such as uPVC, and what costs you could expect to pay. We have created a guide, providing you with all the information you will need to know about composite front doors, from price to practicalities.

What is a composite front door?

A composite front door is a door type comprised of a combination of materials. This includes a solid timber core, uPVC, and Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP). This blend of materials ensures that composite doors provide significant advantages for your home.

How much is a composite front door?

As with many aspects of home design and security, costs can vary. You could predict that those on the higher end of the price scale are manufactured to a higher standard but, overall, brands will supply composite front doors at varied prices. It is worth bearing in mind that you will be paying for the quality of the materials and manufacturing process, as well as the installation. You can expect a price range of £900 – £1600 for high-quality composite front door.

What are the benefits of a composite front door?

The combination of quality, durable materials used to manufacture a composite front door provide a range of benefits. These include:

  • Increased security due to the density and strength of the materials used.
  • Enhanced energy efficiency due to the thickness of the materials and their ability to trap warmth internally.
  • Improved style both internally and externally with a range of colours and finishes to choose from.
  • Improved weather resistance, preventing damage such as warping or fading from occurring.

How does a composite front door compare to a uPVC front door?

uPVC front doors are a popular addition to homes across the country, and many face confusion over the differences between these and composite front doors. uPVC is a cost-effective material, but the strength that composite doors hold is a step above. Due to the thickness of the material, they can boost energy efficiency more than uPVC can, and provide strength that further increases the security of the home. This means that the durability of composite front doors outlasts that of uPVC, providing a long-lasting, high-quality solution for your front door.
