How much will a composite door cost?
There is no set price for a composite door, however its price will vary in accordance with a number of factors. Factors that affect its price include door furniture, any security extras, its size, style and colour. If you have a set idea for your composite door’s design, colour and features, please feel free to get in touch with the Reddish Joinery and we will provide you with a quote.
How long will a composite door last?
Like any entrance door, the length of time that a composite door will last will depend on how well it’s cared for and how much use it gets. The extent of weather exposure is also likely to have an effect on its lifespan. Generally, however, you can expect composite doors to last around 35 years, give or take. Our door slabs are also guaranteed for 10 years, the handles and hinges for 5, so if anything goes wrong within that time, we’ll come out and rectify the issue.
Will composite doors warp?
Composite doors from Reddish Joinery will not warp. The door has a perimeter subframe of a solid, water-resistant polymer material, which is reinforced with Laminated Veneered Lumber (LVL). A thermoset GRP skin is bonded to this subframe and the core of the door is then filled with high density, 100% CFC-free polyurethane foam. Water-resistant polymer composite rails protect the core from damage or water absorption, preventing the door from warping, whilst the high impact resistant thermoset GRP skin keeps your door looking great for longer!
Can I paint a composite door?
In theory, you can but we would not recommend it because they’ve not been designed in this way. The colour that is applied to the skin of our composite doors is not just a coating; the colour runs throughout the whole of the skin. This ensures they’re able to retain their vibrancy year after year whilst making them easy to keep clean.
What size is a composite door?
The size of a composite door varies on a project by project basis. Here at Reddish Joinery, they’re made to measure. We either use the measurements you provide us with or take them ourselves, before a composite door is made to those exact size specifications.
