Composite door, Derby

Over recent years, homeowners want a front door that not only looks good, but is low maintenance and stands the test of time. Doors which don’t fade or warp are a really great investment for any home.

Sometimes people can overlook the fact that a great looking entrance door can revitalise a home. With a composite door you can have a front door that is completely different and the envy of your neighbours.

Composite doors have grown phenomenally because of their high-quality look, and their material that makes them extremely resistant to the effects of weather and regular use, to leave homes with an entrance door that welcomes visitor’s year upon year.

Here at Trade Windows, we have been working on more and more composite door installations across Derby as an increasing amount of people recognise the benefits of having a composite door fitted in their homes.

Here are our four top reasons as to why we think composite doors are so popular with homeowners.

Easy to Maintain

Composite doors are made from a mix of materials which make them extremely durable and resistant to the effects of weather.

Even if you live on a busy main road where the air tends to be filled with a little more debris from the cars passing by, your composite door will still very rarely need cleaning.

And the finish on our composite doors are resistant to any weather. Even with heavy rain and wind in the winter or the glare of the sun during the summer, a composite door will remain unaffected by the elements and keep its fantastic look and colour.

Thermal Efficiency

When you’re replacing your front door, you’re not only looking for a door that looks great but you also want it to stop heat escaping from the home, to keep you warm and help lower your energy bills.

The combined mixture of materials in a composite door with a foam core makes it really thermally efficient.
