What is a composite door?

A composite door is not just made of your average wood, a GRP composite door differs as it is made from glass reinforced plastic also known as fibreglass. This is an extremely strong material that provides many advantages for homes. This reinforced plastic is the same material used of the hulls of boats, now that's strong!

Lifespan of a Composite Door

Now a GRP composite door doesn't just have a pretty face, it is also economically valuable to your wallet. The usual Hardwood or Softwood door as well as making your house less secure and draughty which lets face it is bad enough, they also have to painted every 5 years and have the lifespan of 25 years! That means in the life of the door you will need to repaint a total of 5 times, this is not an ideal situation. Painting a door takes time out of your free time that you want to spend with friends and family, with this, we all know that one neighbour where their door paint is flaking off and looks cracked. Little things like cracking and flaking of paint can have huge effects on a persons first impression of your home, whether that be a friend or a surveyor as you are looking to sell! With a glass reinforced plastic composite door, the life span of the door is 35 years, this is 10 years longer then your average wooden door.

In addition to lifespan, a GRP composite door never has to be painted, the total maintenance of a GRP composite door is to give it a wipe clean! This means no spending your sunday afternoon painting and your door always looking flawless in colour and finish.

Attention to detail

As a GRP composite door is made of fibreglass skins it will keep the original colour you asked for for the entire life span of the door and that's a guarantee! No matter what colour you would like your door to be from black to bright pink that door can be made for you complete with a colour guarantee. Not only is the colour of a door important but what about the doors finish? Old PVC doors came complete with a plain, plastic look which can make the front of a house look cheap and dated. GRP composite doors allow you to have a beautiful timber effect grain, therefore giving you the classic, warm welcoming look of a wooden door with all the security benefits a GRP composite door provides.

So why not have the best of both world? Looks beautiful, uncompromising lifespan and unparalleled safety.
