What is a composite door?
A composite door is a cost-effective exterior or entrance door made from a range of different materials, including the water-resistant synthetic material called PVC (Polyvinyl chloride), insulating foam, wood and GRP (glass-reinforced plastic). These combined materials make this type of door more energy-efficient, secure, and highly durable.
Can I paint a composite door?
The colour of composite doors runs throughout the skin, rather than coating the surface, that’s why it does not quickly wear away or fade like other painted doors. The colour is long-lasting, and the level of maintenance needed to keep the door looking smart and opulent is decreased. You just need to clean the door with a sponge and warm soapy solution if it begins to look dirty and grimes start to build-up. It requires minimal maintenance, and it does not require painting at all.
But then, if you want to update your composite door, you may think of painting it to change the look into something more trendy and modern. You can paint your composite doors or spray it with a different colour. But, it is not designed to be sprayed. And the warranty will not cover any scratches, smears or damage to the skin or its finish caused by painting or other alteration.
How do I maintain a composite door?
Composite doors are high quality, durable, secure, energy-efficient, fantastic looking, and they require very little maintenance because of their nature and composition. They are not prone to won’t discolouration; thus, they don’t fade or warp.
However, to keep your composite door’s lustre and well-refined finish, we recommend cleaning it regularly with a soft cloth with a warm soapy solution to remove grime and dirt.
