A range of front doors on demo at our showroom in wales

As homeowners ourselves, we can relate to the fact that when it comes to buying a replacement door, there is a multitude of different options available. From aluminium replacement doors in Anthracite Grey, to composite replacement doors in Chartwell Green, there is a lot of information to be considered and ultimately, we want to make sure that you have all the information you need to make the most informed, and best decision for you.

Which is why in this blog we’re going to talk you through two of our most popular door materials – uPVC doors and composite doors. From this, we’re hopefully that you’ll have all the information you need to make a decision.

Are composite doors better than uPVC doors?

Fundamentally, no door material is superior to the other. Both materials feature a wide range of benefits and advantages – we’ve written a few blogs about the advantages of uPVC and why you should choose aluminium recently – most of which we’ve mentioned above, for you to decide which one is most suited to your priorities and personal preference.

Whatever door material you decide to choose, we can guarantee that your replacement door will enhance the security and insulation of your home whilst creating a stylish-looking ‘wow-factor’ exterior at the same time – something we know our customers love. If you’re still unsure which material is best for you, we’d recommend viewing our gallery where you can see a plethora of photographic examples of our expert workmanship.
