If your front door is in need of a revamp, a composite door is far more than just an adequate replacement. Composite doors combine a range of materials in an expert fashion, resulting in exceptionally high performance.
Here are 6 key reasons why you should choose one for the front – or back – door of your home.
1 – Enhanced Security Features
Composite doors set a high standard for home security. Our doors are built with a core that’s 60% stronger than the standard, ensuring maximum rigidity. Beyond this sturdy core, multiple solid brass hook locks run the entire length of the outer frame, leaving no weak spots for a potential intruder to leverage. Even the glazed areas are securely locked in place with a unique S-glazed system, making every aspect of the door highly reinforced.
2 – Boosted Energy Efficiency & Sustainability
The glazing locking mechanism serves a dual purpose; it also prevents draughts from entering your home and keeps the heat from escaping, thereby improving your home’s energy efficiency. This not only results in a more comfortable living environment but also lower heating costs. Plus, with its increased energy efficiency, your home’s carbon footprint shrinks, supporting our shared aim of a more sustainable planet.
3 – Aesthetic Appeal with a Natural Touch
Composite doors are graced with a Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) exterior, purposefully manufactured to mimic the natural texture of wood grain. This authentic and beautiful look enhances your home’s kerbside appeal significantly.
4 – Long-lasting Durability
The attractiveness of the GRP exterior is matched by its durability. Resistant to chips, scratches, and various forms of damage, these doors retain their appeal despite exposure to the elements, including sunlight, which won’t cause them to fade. This ensures that the stylish facade of your door will stand the test of time.
5 – Extensive Customisation Opportunities
At Reddish, our composite doors come with a variety of design options, catering to both contemporary and traditional tastes. They can be fitted with a selection of unique glass designs and accessorised with a range of hardware options, from letter plates to spyholes and door knockers. With over 256 possible colour combinations, you can create a composite door that truly reflects your personal style and complements your home.
6 – Sound Insulation
One often overlooked advantage of composite doors is their sound insulation level. Their multi-layered structure and solid core help to dampen and absorb external noise, making your home a more peaceful and quiet place to be. This can be especially beneficial if you live in a busy or noisy area. With a composite door, you can enjoy a tranquil home environment, irrespective of what’s happening outside
Providing every home with an abundance of style and numerous practical features, it’s difficult to go wrong with a composite front door. Interested in one for your home? Give Reddish Joinery a call on 0161 969 7474 or contact us online.
