Composite doors vs uPVC doors – which one suits a Swindon home?

Are you a homeowner in Swindon who’s looking for a new entrance door? Perhaps your old timber version is at the end of its tenure and a replacement is nigh? If so, we’ve got a range of fantastic options that are suitable for both front and back entranceways. But to help you decide which is right for your home, lets take a closer look at each of them below.

Composite Doors

  • All of them feature an impact resistant, highly durable Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) skin. This is highly customisable in a range of colours and woodgrain finishes for a genuine timber aesthetic that will last for years
  • The GRP skin is also exceptionally weatherproof, keeping unwanted draughts and rainfall out of your home
  • Utilising a highly insulated core, the levels of heat retention are nothing short of spectacular. Whichever you opt for, there’s great potential to save on your energy bills
  • Featuring the latest in advanced locking technology, your home will be expertly secured from potential intruders
  • Solidor composite doors have a core that is 10% thicker than its competitors, for increased levels of durability
  • The Distinction range has a variation which is 70mm thick, offering a further boost to heat retention and sound insulation. This helps create an ultimately peaceful and warm home environment
  • Infinity doors utilise an ultra-dense foam core, helping them to achieve an ‘A’ energy efficiency rating
