What is the difference between a UPVC and a composite door?

Articles

UPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) and composite doors are both popular choices for external doors, but they have some significant differences.

UPVC doors are made entirely of plastic and are lightweight, durable, and easy to maintain. They are relatively inexpensive and offer good insulation, making them an excellent choice for those on a budget. UPVC doors come in a range of colours and styles, but they can look somewhat plain compared to other door materials.

Composite doors, on the other hand, are made from a combination of materials, including UPVC, wood, and glass-reinforced plastic (GRP). They are stronger and more durable than UPVC doors, with a high level of insulation that makes them energy-efficient. Composite doors can also come in a wide range of colours and styles, with some designs mimicking the appearance of traditional wooden doors. However, they tend to be more expensive than UPVC doors.

In summary, UPVC doors are a good option for those looking for an affordable and low-maintenance door that provides good insulation. Composite doors are a more expensive option, but they offer greater durability and strength, along with a wider range of styles and colours.

UPVC and composite doors can both be good choices for your home. If you’re not sure which is right for you, contact us to speak to a member of our team.
