The Benefits Of A Composite Door For Your Home

When you think about it, your front door plays several crucial roles, or at least it should do! It needs to be aesthetically-pleasing, externally and internally, secure and thermally efficient. If the door is particularly old, in all probability it will be failing your home in some regard and needs replacing, sooner rather than later.

5 Star is a well-respected supplier of quality replacement residential doors, so we know what we’re talking about when it comes to entranceways. Our impressive door range includes composite doors.

You might not be as familiar with composite doors as you are with UPVC doors. We’ll soon change that by giving you the low-down on this outstanding door solution…

What is a composite door?

If you look up the dictionary definition of the word ‘composite’ you will discover that it means “made up of several parts or elements” and that’s exactly what a composite door is. It is manufactured using PVC, wood, an insulating foam and GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) skin. The combination of these materials results in an incredibly thick door frame, much denser than any standard replacement door.

It’s amazingly similar to a wooden door

As just mentioned, a composite door contains an element of wood, but you’d think it was a fully wooden door by looking at it. We can categorically tell you that it isn’t, it just happens to have an authentic woodgrain, the kind of woodgrain that you would only normally expect to see on a timber door. In contrast to a timber door, composite doors don’t swell, crack, rot or anything like that.

You don’t have to maintain a composite

Door maintenance is a massive chore and one that all homeowners could do without. This is a big reason to buy a composite door as future maintenance is practically non-existent. You don’t have to repaint the door for a start or repair it, and when it gets dirty, you only need to wipe the frame with a wet cloth to remove any marks.

Composites are unbelievably tough

The resilience of a composite door takes some beating. You would bounce off a composite door frame if you tried to force it open when locked and most likely hurt yourself in the process. All of our composite doors have a multi-point locking mechanism incorporated into them too that’s virtually impossible to break.


You can see a carousel of our composite door designs here and they’re all named after famous UK towns and cities. Wherever you live, a composite door will make such a difference to your home.
