Your top questions on composite doors answered

Posted on 09.04.2024

Composite doors have surged in popularity across Sussex and beyond, as a trendy and high-performance replacement for traditional timber and uPVC doors. But are they the right front door for your home?

Bowalker Doors is here to guide you through the different composite door collections we offer, ensuring we find the perfect match. But as a starting point, here are the answers to the top composite door questions we hear from you!

What makes composite doors different from other doors?

Composite doors are distinguished by their construction, combining several materials such as uPVC, wood, insulating foam, and GRP (glass reinforced plastic) to achieve superior durability, thermal efficiency, and weather resistance. Unlike standard wooden or uPVC doors, our composite doors come with a low-density foam or timber core, ensuring a high level of thermal efficiency and strength, making them a versatile choice for homes across Brighton, Crawley, Horsham, Hickstead, Hayward’s Heath and more.

Are composite doors secure?

Absolutely. Security is high on the list for every homeowner we speak to, which is why we ensure Bowalker Doors’ composite doors come with top-grade security systems, including multi-point locking mechanisms. Our doors also have Secured By Design accreditation, a police-preferred specification, and comply with Document Q standards, ensuring they meet the highest security measures.

How energy efficient are composite doors?

Energy efficiency is another critical factor in choosing an entrance door. Our composite doors boast excellent thermal efficiency due to their unique construction materials and design. The low-density timber core and insulating foam layers minimise heat loss, ensuring your home stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer, ultimately contributing to lower energy bills.

Can I customise my composite door?

Now comes the fun part! One of the most exciting parts of upgrading your entrance with a Bowalker Doors composite door is the wide range of design choices we have available. Choose from a wide range of colours, styles, glass designs, hardware and finishes to match – or perhaps stand out from! – your home’s exterior.
