Are Composite Doors Better Than Wood?

Composite doors are more durable and low maintenance than wood. When comparing high-quality composite doors with timber counterparts, the former offers a wider range of practical benefits. Made with uPVC, a solid timber core, foam and glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), the doors excel in their structural integrity. Composite doors can suit both commercial and domestic properties. Each door offers a wealth of practical benefits, including security, thermal performance and weather resistance.
