Timber doors vs composite doors

Last Updated: 5 September 2022

A question we at Reddish Joinery hear a lot is which type of door would we recommend: Timber or composite? Unfortunately, the answer isn’t so definitive, with both styles offering their own unique benefits that any individual homeowner will perceive differently. We only provide Cheshire residents with the very best solutions. In this sense, there is no wrong answer. However, to help you determine which one will best suit your needs, we’ve rounded up the highlights of both.

Timber door

Timber doors

Sustainably sourced and attractive in the most classical sense, our selection of timber doors is elegantly constructed to deliver the true look and feel of traditional wood panels. Timber doors match this aesthetic with an equally impressive level of thermal efficiency thanks to wood being a natural insulator. Once installed, you can rest comfortably knowing that the front of your home will always feel comfortable. Timber doors also suite those with ever-changing personal preferences, thanks to their ability to be repainted.

  • Wood construction for true authenticity
  • Repainted for easy customisation
  • High levels of thermal insulation
  • Potential lifespan of over 60 years

Composite door

Composite doors

Largely considered the most secure option for front entrances, composite doors take their name from the fact that they are constructed using a mixture of materials. This means that they boast a slab that is incredibly dense to stay both defensive and attractive all at the same time. An outer coating of glass reinforced plastic means they can withstand the generally wear and tear brought by the harsh weather and never need touching up or painting.

  • Mixture of materials for added strength
  • GRP coasting for long-lasting finish
  • High levels of thermal insulation
  • The low maintenance of uPVC with the look of timber

High quality timber-like entrances whatever your choice

Hopefully that’s helped to highlight which of the two might best be ideal for your personal preferences and your home. However, if you’d like to learn more feel free to get in touch with a member of the Reddish team today.
