What To Look For Before Purchasing Your Composite Door

Posted on 16th January 2020

Doors are a very important part of our houses. They are a barrier between you and the world. They provide privacy, security and keep thieves and robbers away in addition to giving an aesthetic feel to your home. So, you have finally decided to buy a composite front door after being wowed by its benefits over other types of doors. Now you are confused about how to choose the right one for yourself. There is a lot more to a good door than how it looks. Here are a few tips to help you buy the right composite door for your house.

What style are you looking for?

First and foremost, you need to decide the kind of door that suits your house. Did you recently get a house or is it made according to the modern styles of this century? Or was your home built in the older time or gives a traditional look? Your home décor is going to be the deciding factor between getting a modern composite door or a traditional or heritage composite door.

Most composite doors offer a woodgrain finish so they give the feel of wooden doors. However, you get doors that give a plasticky finish as well.

All of the doors come in a variety of different colours as well. You could choose one colour or go for a contrast. You could also choose different colours for the front part of the door and the back part of the door.

Then come the front door accessories. A wide range of handles, knockers, glaze and letterboxes are available to decorate your front door with.

Basically, you need to decide a door first and then choose the accessories according to it. Simple and plain composite doors work well with modern and traditional homes alike. Panelled doors would suit traditional or Victorian styled houses more. You can decide the woodgrain finish and colour according to how your home looks from the outside and the look it gives.

You could choose a solid or an insulated core for your composite front door!

Composite doors having a solid core are pricier than ones having an insulated core. However, they give a more wooden and authentic feeling and if someone knocks on your door, the feel is better. Insulated core doors are lighter and give a less authentic feel when someone knocks on them.

However, both kinds of doors are efficient, robust and extremely secure. So, basically there is no different in the benefits that they have to offer.

Composite doors are more expensive than other types of doors and, if you have finally decided to get one, we will advise you to go the extra mile and get the solid cored one for a more authentic feel. It’s not like you buy doors every day. However, it is entirely your personal choice and depends on the door, the available options and your budget. So, get whatever suits you.
