Let’s imagine you’ve installed a beautiful composite door from our Country Collection. It’s rustic and inviting and makes a charming statement for anyone walking up your driveway. However, you’ve recently modernised the front of your home, and the door no longer matches the aesthetics. Ripping it out and starting a new door from scratch isn’t an option, and besides, it’s still just as sturdy and thermally efficient as it ever was. What can you do? Well, with a few adjustments, you can transform it.

Modernising A Composite Door

First, let’s consider the handle. Traditional homes often have Monkey Tail Handles fitted and they are a great choice. There’s a satisfying, old-fashioned vibe to them and they feel like they could have existed for centuries, but they’re not for homeowners who want a cutting-edge look. Replacing one with something that has a more twenty-first-century style, like a chrome Heritage Lever Handle can make a big difference.

Next, there’s the letterplate. We find that letterplates are timeless and universally applicable, but our Architectural Letterplates look strikingly modern. A composite door with an Architectural Letterplate in pewter will look brand new, regardless of how many years you’ve had it. 

Your choice of Knocker can subtly alter the door too. For example, we love the Heritage Bull Ring knocker. It’s a classic style and when you see one, it could be anywhere between a day and a couple of hundred years old. However, it looks out of place on more modern doors. If you’ve got one and want a more contemporary replacement, a chrome Architectural Knocker is a good choice. Alternatively, by choosing one of our Paw Knockers, you can add a lighthearted vibe and let visitors know you’re an animal lover.

Modern Glazing For Composite Doors

Aside from the accessories, your choice of glazing can have an effect. Glass with elegant patterns, such as our Spring or Clarence designs, make delightful additions if you want a vintage look. At the same time, tinted ones like our Elizabeth Red are stunning too.

Modern glazing however, tends to be more simplistic. Our Satin glass for example, can turn a traditional door into a more modern one, and with an opacity rating of five, you won’t have to worry about privacy either. We also have bordered designs like Virtue and Iris, which bridge the modern and the classic. Removing your floral glass and replacing them with any of these will help to update your door.

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.
