It is estimated 34% of break-ins occur through the front door. Choosing the right materials for your front door can help keep your family safe and secure. While there are many types of doors to choose from, a composite front door is a strong, practical, and affordable option for homes in Ireland.
A composite door costs a little more than other door options, but the durability and low maintenance cost more than pay for it over time. In this article, we will look at the many benefits of composite door materials, including the energy efficiency they provide and the many available frames and finishes.
Composite Front Door Construction
A composite front door is typically made with a uPVC frame with various hardwoods for the inner core. Composite doors are sometimes made from fibreglass with a foam interior. Both types are very strong and require very little maintenance.
Composite doors have a unique exterior coating to prevent warping and shrinking. The coating also provides a layer of insulation between your home and the outdoors. This helps you lower your energy bills and keep your house a comfortable temperature year-round.
Because of the material composition, composite doors are low maintenance doors. You won’t have to paint or stain the door over time. A simple wipe with soap and water will keep it looking new for a long time.
Safety and Security
Composite doors are made from durable and robust materials. They are harder to break into than other types of doors. They undergo rigorous testing to withstand the most aggressive attacks, including sledgehammers and crowbars.
With the right combination of door lock, they can provide you with a superior protective barrier against burglars and other threats.
On average, a composite door lasts around 30 years. That’s far longer than other types of doors. And since the finish and colour are permanent, there’s no need to worry about repainting or staining the door.
Many Styles to Choose
There’s no shortage of style when it comes to composite doors. You can find the perfect option to complement your home. Choose from traditional or contemporary, cottage to designer, or somewhere in between.
You can also select single, double, or stable door styles.
If you choose a composite door with a wooden inner core, the colour and finish may be more limited because of the type and grain of the wood. Fibreglass composite doors have a more comprehensive range of colour availability.
