Composite Doors as a Financial Investment

Installing a modern composite door in your home is a great experience, but did you know it’s a long-term investment as well? We tend to take doors for granted; we use them every single day without thinking and rarely consider the extra value that our doors provide. In most people’s minds, ‘investing’ involves trading stocks and shares, not buying a new front door.

Here at Endurance Doors however, we’ve got years of experience designing front doors and have picked up on all the hidden savings they provide. When you install a new composite door, it’ll start paying for itself almost immediately. Here are several reasons to think of composite doors as a long-term investment.

The Hidden Savings Of Composite Doors

Composite doors are stylish and attractive, but they’re also remarkably strong. Here at Endurance, our doors are manufactured with a solid timber core and we are extremely proud of their resilience and durability. They can withstand severe weather conditions and even direct hits from sledgehammers. Additionally, they come fitted with top-of-the-range locking systems and are rigorously tested to make sure they meet our high security standards.

This is very good news for homeowners. Composite doors will withstand break-in attempts, so you won’t need to worry about unwanted intruders stealing your valuables or vandalising your house. Having your home broken into is expensive and traumatic, but a composite door reduces the risk of it happening. It’ll also withstand whatever nature throws at it and requires minimal maintenance, so you won’t be spending money on repairs.

The Energy Benefits

Due to their density profiles, composite doors are better insulators than traditional timber doors. They have lower u-values and are around 17% more energy efficient. In layman’s terms, this means they help your home stay warmer for longer, so you’ll have to rely on your central heating a lot less.

Over time, this will result in cheaper energy bills, and those savings will pile up as the years go by. You’ll be taking the edge off your energy consumption, spending less, and as a bonus, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint. Double-glazed windows and loft insulation are talked about a lot for their thermal benefits, but composite doors contribute too.

Long-term Savings With Composite Doors

Add all these benefits together and it becomes clear why composite doors are a long-term investment. They keep your home safe from intruders, require minimal maintenance and can help reduce your heating bills. That aside, if you ever decide to sell your home, an attractive modern door will add to the value.

How Are Composite Doors Made?

17 Laminations

Our composite doors are made up of 17 laminations with a solid timber core. We use BBA accredited, engineered LVL (laminated veneered lumber.). Our 48mm thick core offers exceptional stability and eliminates the possibility of warping over time. Each door is manufactured with an integrated Moisture Barrier System in the base of the door which protects your door from water damage, delamination and maintains its integrity, avoiding common problems with composite doors.


Door Skin

Endurance composite doors feature a laminated door skin with a highly weatherproof and durable acrylic layer, offering exciting vivid colours and luxurious wood effect designs that perfectly match the door frames into which they are installed. Our replacement front doors are finished with a foiled 3D Cool Skin that features an embossed woodgrain texture to offer a surface that won’t crack or fade. Available in 16 colours ranging from neutral shades to bold bright tones, you can create a composite door solution that is colour lasting and will continue to look great even after years of use. Once you’ve selected the style, and design of your new door and applied your preferred colour you can add finishing touches to your composite door with a wide selection of hardware and security options. Select from handles, knockers and letter plates to personalise your door and make it your own.

Hardware Options

With 10 hardware colours to choose from including Gold, Graphite, Antique Black and Chrome you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to putting the final touch to your composite door. Created to blend into the surroundings of your property and to complement your existing décor, we know that you’ll be pleased with the finished result.

what are the benefits of the solid timber core external doors

Solid Timber Core

The Endurance door has a solid core unlike others. This robustness means there are more advantages and far fewer problems with composite doors from us compared to other companies.

With 48mm thick cross-bonded veneered laminated timber door lead, Endurance composite doors deliver lateral strength and unrivalled stability.

We use Kerto LVL for our solid core, a material which is incredibly strong and dimensionally stable timber beam. The makeup of our solid core is designed so that it can be cut to any height or width without affecting its integral strength.

Our solid core competitors use cores that incorporate less dense mixed species woods with a stile and rail subframe. The core’s strength comes from the outer subframe in these doors. A narrow or short door involves cutting into this subframe and cutting away the strength of the door. These doors don’t always hold their shape when facing the temperature changes of British weather and central heating.

We are so confident in the quality of our Endurance composite door we offer a 3mm bowing guarantee on our doors.
