Your front door is the first and last thing your visitors will see. It’s a gateway into your beloved home, where you share some of your most cherished memories and prized possessions – it’s only fitting that your home exterior reflects what is inside.

What is a Composite Door.

The term ‘Composite Door’ is such as well-known phrase that it is now always used to describe an entrance door, but did you know that a composite door is actually a door made from a mixture of materials, and at Clydebuilt – we only use the best!

Rather than using timber which often swells & bows, we use a high-density core that is 60% stronger than your standard composite door in all of our entrance doors, back doors, french & stable doors. With added extras such as steel mesh to make the door four times stronger, you really wouldn’t be able to find a more robust composite door than Clydebuilts doors!


Thermally Efficient.

When manufacturing our composite doors, there are various innovative technologies used that make our doors superior to most exterior other composite doors. Thermal efficient materials such as PVC-U skins, glass, reinforced frames, & polyurethane foam all work together to achieve the best possible energy ratings.

A clear backing glass is another great way to improve the thermal performance of your door, as a special coating can be applied to the glass, making it even more thermally efficient. Unfortunately, special coatings cannot be applied to textured glass designs, so if you’re really looking to drill down your energy bills, then you need to choose clear glass!

A Low PVC-u threshold is another option that can help reduce energy bills and achieve an A-rating!


Choice of 13 Stunning Colours

With 13 stunning colours to choose from & hundreds of back & front door styles, you can be assured that your door will not only look the part but be secure too!

Composite Doors FAQs

One of the significant advantages of a composite door is the combination of materials used to make the door, making them one of the most low maintenance, secure, & thermally efficient door available. A composite door also has a wide choice of colours & designs, including a stable door option, so unlike hardwood doors, they’re very low maintenance & require very little upkeep.

A brand new composite door is seen as a favourably home improvement that can add some value to your home. This is much like getting new uPVC windows, as it creates a great first impression to prospective buyers as one of the first parts of your home they see. It’s low maintenance and secure & looks like a solid hardwood door from the outside.

Composite doors are made from a number of materials that are pressed & glued together, whereas uPVC doors are made out of a single material. uPVC doors are the most popular choice in homes across the country because they provide a good balance between insulation, security & cost. Composite doors are a lot more expensive than uPVC doors, which is why uPVC remains the most popular choice of door.
