It's not always the price that matters, but there are other factors as well that help in deciding which door to use. The quality, durability and maintenance factors all come into play when deciding a door. Let us have a look at both these doors and get a better idea about composite doors and wooden doors.
Entry doors have to be tested and certified for energy efficiency, way before you make a purchase. The doors ought to have tighter-fitting frames, energy-efficient cores, and double- or triple-insulated glass panels to reduce heat transfer in case of sidelights.
Composite doors are on their way to efficiently replacing the wooden and the UPVC material doors. Why? Well, while wooden doors may solve your durability problems and donate a perpetual high on the aesthetic factor, it is required that you pay attention to its maintenance throughout. UPVC on the other hand is durable too, however it is not a material very pleasant to behold. In the light of these drawbacks, composite doors have emerged to be a clear preference for all those who desire security and are also open to aesthetic maneuver's.
The door frame is generally made of hardwood coupled with UPVC (Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) which makes the door frame rank high on durability. The hardwood composition is meant for the outer door frame, whereas for the inner door frame, the material that is employed is called galvanized steel. The composite door thermal efficiency is enhanced due to the polyurethane foam consistency and the use of Glass Resistant Plastic. GRP has the capacity to retain its color and enhances the appearance of the door, thereby giving a grainy wood-like effect. It has a highly resistant fiberglass available in variegated colors, together with galvanized steel that aids the door in sustaining the weather conditions preventing it from warping, expanding or contracting. Thus, the insulation that the door provides is par excellence. Due to the chlorofluorocarbon content in the door composition, the door keeps the interiors of the house warm during winters and pleasant during summers.
