Composite External Doors

The beauty of a composite external door is far more than just skin deep (although the skin is pretty perfect too!).

When it comes time to replace your front door, back door or any other door that gives ingress to your property, you can’t beat a composite door for style, function, insulation, security and value for money. In fact, a new composite door is practically perfect in every way.

That’s why when customers ask us at Alan Joy Windows to recommend a new front door in Melksham, Trowbridge, Chippenham or anywhere else across west Wiltshire where we work we’ll suggest you choose a composite door, and fit it expertly for you.

For many years external doors were made of solid wood – they may have looked good initially but in the face of British weather they were inclined to rot and warp, meaning they had a relatively short lifespan. Then along came uPVC front doors – a cheaper option but aesthetically limited in styling and colour choices, and inclined to look shabby after a few years.

Composite doors are stylish, versatile, and low maintenance

Composite front doors are the modern, quality alternative – stronger and more durable than wood and more stylish, versatile and low maintenance than uPVC.

Many of our customers ask what composite doors are made of. The answer is in the name – they’re constructed from a composition of various materials. The outer frame is made of reinforced galvanised steel, then there’s a subframe of uPVC and a solid timber core.
This strong, stable, rigid base is then finished off with a GRP (glass reinforced plastic) skin, which is available in a vast range of colours and textures – including wood grain – so you can choose any finish you like to complement the style of your property.
Customised composite doors can be ordered with glazed insets of all shapes, sizes and types of glass if you wish, and a dazzling array of door furniture is available to further enhance the look and appeal of your chosen door, making it an impressive entrance to your home or commercial property.
A composite door may be a welcoming sight for visitors to your home, but it certainly isn’t welcome to unwanted intruders. Composite doors with appropriate locking systems are recognised by insurance companies as being a vital security feature: one manufacturer maintains it would be difficult to smash down a composite door even with a sledgehammer.
