By combining different materials, they can create strikingly attractive patterns that are never possible with a single material.

What Are Composite Doors Made Of?
What are the benefits of installing composite doors?
Composite doors can keep your home feeling fresh and stylish all year long. Their aesthetically pleasing appearance are perfect for giving properties a modern facelift whether it’s for the front door or back door. Regardless of how you feel about your current door, it’s time to think about how it could look once you do a composite door upgrade. At Ace Glazing London, we can help you make the most of your home’s entryway with a stylish new composite door.
Strong and Durable
Composite doors render benefits in terms of their durability and strength. They have a guaranteed lifespan of over 70 years, thus many people who install composite doors for the first time are not worried about their durability. Moreover, this material is able to bear extreme weather conditions, such as poor air quality and moisture exposure.
Easy to Maintain
Composite doors are extremely easy to maintain provided the right care is taken. Composite doors do not warp or split easily, so are very hard-wearing and resistant to damage making them easier to clean than timber. This will also reduce the need for costly repairs, particularly if they are fitted with double glazing.
The U-value for a composite door on the warm side is typically 0.3W/mK. This means that only 3% of the heat generated by sunlight or electric light enters through the door and thus, there is 97% less heat loss than with a wooden door. This makes them one of the most thermally efficient front doors on the market.
Composite doors are up to 50% more soundproof than conventional wooden front doors. All of our doors reduce noise from the outside, which means less maintenance and healthier living for you and your family.
Good First Impression
Composite doors make a great first impression. A good looking door will give that instant wow factor when visitors walk into your home or office.
Composite doors are fitted with multipoint locking, this will secure your property and prevent intruders from breaking in.
Protection from Elements
A composite door provides protection from elements by keeping out water and preserving heat or air conditioning, as it is mainly constructed of a non-porous material such as glass or plastic, depending on the situation. As you can see, there are just so many reasons to invest in a new composite door for your home. If you think a composite door will look good on your London property, then give us a call to walk you through your options. Call 020 452 51670 for a free, no-obligation quote today.

Remove the existing door
Before we start your new composite installation, we remove the existing doors and frames, ensuring your property is left completely clear of all debris, but without damaging any part of your property.
Install the frame
Our high-quality composite door frames are finished with a tough textured, paper-backed film in a range of colours. The frame is made from high-pressured laminations of Polyurethane and Fibre reinforced glass-filled polyester, covered with a smooth durable finish.
Install the hinges
Usually, door hinges are installed on the left side of the door. However, there are some configurations where these hinges may be installed on the right side of a door. The method of installation remains the same in both cases. We use an electric drill for drilling holes and an electric screwdriver for tapping screws into place.
Fitting the door
When you choose Ace Glazing London, we will come to your home and fit the door with minimal disruption to you. Remember that we will only move forward with the installation after you have chosen your preferred composite door. Our certified installers have the experience and knowledge needed to ensure your door is fitted correctly and efficiently. If this sounds like your kind of service, call us today!

Do we need Planning Permission to install a composite door?
If you are installing a new composite door or replacing an existing door, then you may need planning permission. The construction of a door and the frames that open into shared areas such as corridors, landings, stairs and walkways requires planning permission even if there are no structural modifications like brickwork openings to walls, foundations or extensions. Contact your local council for information on planning procedures before the installation takes place.
Alternatively, our Ace Glazing experts can reach out to your local council on your behalf to help you get the relevent information you need concerning planning permission. Get in touch today for more information.
