When it comes to new doors, we love working with Solidor composite doors.
They’re not the only doors available, and they’re not the cheapest, but they’re right up there among the best, perhaps even THE best. More solid, more secure and more economical and infinitely better looking than a typical uPVC door.
So, what is a composite door?
Composite doors are the newest type of doors to be used in homes. Composite doors have been designed taking into consideration the common flaws experienced in singular material doors. Using a combination of materials which have been selected for their beneficial properties, composite doors allow for the old flaws to be effectively ‘designed out’.
Composite doors are made up from a variety of materials, including PVC, wood, insulating foam and GRP (glass reinforced plastic) which are layered together. The combination of materials results in a door that is very strong and secure.
Whether you’re choosing front or back doors, they have a high resistance to weathering and will not react to seasonal changes like a singular material door. Composite doors have a higher thermal resistance than wooden doors, due to the insulating foam core.
The range of doors that Solidor provides, from contemporary to classic styles, means that you’re not short of options and that you’ll be hard pressed to find something that DOESN’T match the aesthetic of your home. Such is technology now, you can even match your door to your windows, or vice versa! Solidor offers a variety of colours for you to choose from, inside and out, which makes them immensely versatile.
On top of this, they’re proven to be more economical, keep the cold out and the heat in, which means in the long term, it has potential to save you money with your household bills.
Finally, they’re secure. Due to the layering they’re much more sturdy, as well, Solidor (and Emereo) recommends using Ultion Locks to keep it tight, using multi locking systems, which means they’re secured at multiple points around the frame!
The difficult decision with this is…once you’ve chosen Solidor, what colour and style do you want?! With over 200+ combinations there’s plenty to keep you busy. You can even customise your own door, get in touch to find out how!
