Composite doors and windows have risen in popularity over the last few years, especially with homeowners wanting to create a more modern look for their home. But what are they and what makes them different to more traditional windows and doors?
How are composite doors and windows made?
If we look back into the past a little, the vast majority of doors and windows were made from either wood or PVC. Each of these types of material have their own benefits, especially when trying to choose windows that fit into the existing age and style of your property. In some older buildings, there are also restrictions on what you can and can’t have fitted.
PVC on the other hand was a cheaper option than wood, it is also longer lasting, easier to maintain and more practical. Composite doors combine these two materials giving a completely different look and offering a wide range of colours without the need to repaint. It is basically a wooden door or window that is covered with a PVC edge. This allows a merging of the benefits in both types, making the most of their strengths and minimising their weaknesses.
Benefits of composite doors and windows
- Here are some of the main benefits:

So if you are looking for a modern solution and want something that gives you all the benefits of PVC and Wood combined, without the maintenance concerns, then composite doors and windows could be exactly what you are looking for.
