Composite front doors have gained popularity in recent years due to their durability, security, and aesthetic appeal. As they are an excellent option to enhance entrances, you probably have seen an increase in demand from your customers. While they offer a range of benefits, in this article, Sternfenster also covers the disadvantages of supply only composite front doors. So you can keep your customers up to date and help them make a fully informed decision.

Pros of Supply Only Composite Front Doors

1. Durability: One of the key advantages of composite front doors is their durability. Unlike traditional timber doors, composite doors are not prone to fading, warping, or cracking. They are designed to withstand the elements and maintain their appearance for many years.

With Sternfenster’s composite front doors, your customers can also benefit from weather resistance. Incorporating an internal construction of timber, LVL, composite and high density polyurethane core, our composite doors remain stable regardless of weather conditions. 

2. Low Maintenance: Composite doors are extremely low maintenance. Unlike wooden doors that require regular painting and varnishing, composite doors only need occasional cleaning with mild detergent and water to keep them looking their best.

At Sternfenster, our composite front doors also feature fully reinforced 2mm thick GRP skins, which are constantly tested at BM trade to exceed industry standards. With this feature, your customers can benefit from low maintenance doors that do not warp or bend in the heat. In the long run, saving them money and time from repairs or replacements.

3. Energy Efficiency: Composite doors offer excellent thermal efficiency, helping to keep your customers’ home comfortable and reduce energy bills. Our GRP composite front doors are 44mm thick featuring fully insulated door slabs for maximum thermal performance of comfort as well as reduced draughts. 

4. Noise Reduction: In addition to their energy efficiency, composite doors also provide excellent noise reduction. The structure of the door, including the solid timber core, helps to block out external noise, making it a great choice for your clients especially if they are located in busy areas or near main roads.

5. Security: Composite doors are known for their high level of security. They are thicker and more robust than most other doors, making them harder to break through. Our composite doors also come with multi-point locking systems, two hooks, rollers, a deadbolt, and one soft latch as standard. However, if you have clients who are particular about security, we also offer the option to upgrade to Secured by Design accreditation with added laminated glass, reinforcing, and anti-snap or drill barrels.

6. Longevity: Composite doors are built to last. With proper care and maintenance, they can last around 35 years, making them a great long term investment for your customers’ home.

Cons of Supply Only Composite Front Doors

1. Cost: While composite doors offer many benefits, your customers can find them more expensive than uPVC doors. However, the additional cost is often justified by the durability, energy efficiency, and security that composite front doors provide.

2. Limited Design Options: Compared to other types of doors, composite doors are known to have more limited design options. However, at Sternfenster, there are a range of exciting options available to suit different preferences, from contemporary to traditional designs. Including high quality, customisable hardware, premium letterplates, handles, slimline knockers and many more.
