Composite Door Frequently Asked Questions

These should help answer common queries about composite doors, but if your question is not here and you would like some further information, please get in touch.

Should I clean my composite door regularly?

Composite doors are very low maintenance and don’t require much in the way of cleaning. However, to keep your door in tip-top condition, it’s recommended that you use soapy water and a cloth once a month. Avoid any harsher chemicals or sponges as this could damage your door’s finish.

What colour composite door should I choose and will it fade?

The most popular colour choice with Comp Doors is Anthracite Grey, thanks to its versatility and tendency to look cleaner for longer. With this in mind, don’t be afraid to get creative with whichever colour would fit best with your vision. We have over 250 colour finishes for you to choose from, with the option for different colours internally and externally.
When it comes to the durability of your new composite door’s colour, a lot of composite doors can fade over time due to weather exposure on their painted finish. You won’t have this problem with Comp Doors, thanks to CoolSkin technology providing a colour protective layer against temperature changes and other impact. This means your door won’t fade and will fare better than other materials such as uPVC or timber, due to its superior quality.

Are composite front doors the strongest option compared to other materials?

Thanks to their timber cores and multi-layer compositions, our range of composite doors is much stronger than uPVC and timber alternatives.

Will temperature changes cause my composite front door to move or alter its shape?

Although some level of thermal movement is inevitable, Comp Doors’ timber core and Auto Slam Shut locks minimise bowing and shifting when compared to alternatives like timber and uPVC, making your new front door more weather resistant.
