The decision to install an entrance door is one where you want to make sure you’ll be satisfied with the outcome. For a lot of people, it’s hard to decide whether a uPVC or composite entrance door is the right choice for your property. Both doors have their own unique selling points and complement homes in a variety of different ways.

Why choose a uPVC entrance door for your home?

White uPVC entrance doorAs perhaps the most popular front door choice in the UK, the uPVC entrance door has a glowing reputation. Renowned for superb thermal efficiency and affordability, a uPVC entrance door can be the perfect all-rounder door. Consisting of multiple internal chambers, our uPVC doors are designed to prevent heat from escaping your home. When you don’t have to rely so much on artificial methods of heating, you’ll find yourself spending less money on energy bills.

uPVC entrance doors from Dream Installations also make use of double glazing to further increase their energy efficiency. When it comes to security, our uPVC entrance door is fitted with multipoint hook locks that effectively protect homeowners from would-be intruders.

One of the best things about uPVC as a material is that it requires little to no maintenance, so you won’t need to find time in your life to keep it looking its best. Speaking of looks, Dream Installations can install a uPVC entrance door in a variety of colours or woodgrain foils.

Why choose a composite entrance door for your home?

Anthracite grey composite entrance doorComposite doors differ from uPVC in that they’re made up of a combination of timber & uPVC construction materials. They have a focus on durability & strength and are one of the sturdiest entrance door choices available. You can have a composite entrance door with either a 48mm solid timber core or an insulating Polyurethane core.

Composite doors are both multi-layered and dense, making them airtight within the frame, which improves upon the levels of thermal retention and security that can be provided by a uPVC entrance door. A composite entrance door excels at resisting harsh weather elements thanks to its glass-reinforced plastic outer skin. Just like uPVC entrance doors, a composite door is low-maintenance and won’t warp, rot or need painting. In terms of security, a composite door boasts an impressive Ultion cylinder lock.
