Why Invest In A Composite Door?
Composite doors are a drastic upgrade to plastic alternatives. They are designed to withstand corrosive weather conditions, improve your Epsom properties security and require minimal maintenance throughout their long life. Keep your home secure and save money on your expensive energy bills by investing in a composite door this Winter.
A composite door is like a traditional timber door, wearing a suit of armour. They are designed to capture the simplistic and attractive looks of wood, minus the drawbacks of old fashioned and outdated doors. By this we mean that, unlike wood, a composite door will not rot or warp.
Therefore you don’t need to set aside 4 hours of your precious weekend to ultimately end up spraining your back and cutting your fingers open by removing the door and planing it level to the frame.
So, why won’t you end up in A and E when you invest in a composite door? Composite doors are made to last, meaning that you will not need to experience the trauma of removing a door and working on it in your free time. In fact, after our in house team of professionals have installed your door, you’ll never need to paint, varnish or treat your door. The highest quality, guaranteed for an entire decade.
Composite Doors and Energy Efficiency
We don’t need to tell you just how important it is for everyone to play their part in the well being of the planet. What’s fact is every small, environment conscious act snowballs to big change. Choose environmentally friendly solutions, help to eradicate global wastage and lower your expensive heating bills. Composite doors are built to last. Built to resist harsh, cold weather conditions. Built to keep warm air inside and the cold winds out.
Alarmingly, research has proven that as much as 20% of your heating simply passes through ill fitted windows and doors. What are your yearly heating bills? £1200? £1300? Let’s take the latter as an example, working our way forward, using the statistic as an example.
£1200 heating bill per year, with a 20% loss through poorly fitted and inadequate windows and doors. Per month, you essentially open the door walk over to a drain, open your wallet and drop a tenner in it.
You do that every month, and that’s your car insurance sorted for the year. You do that for the entire guarantee of your brand new energy efficient composite door, and that’s a staggering £1200 pounds! Or, a cheeky all inclusive summer holiday in Barcelona for yourself and partner.
How Are Composite Doors Made?
Composite Doors are a pretty straight forward idea, executed with advanced technology. Composite doors are covered in an outer skin of durable glass reinforced plastics and have a rigid foam core inside. The foam core make the composite door its energy efficient edge.
