What Suits You Most, a Composite or UPVC Door?

The front door is an important part of any home. It provides protection and welcomes you after the busy workday. Your front door is the first element of your home that greets guests and the right front door can leave a lasting impression. The front of your beloved home should reflect your household and represent you. If your front door is showing signs of damage, ageing or simply no longer suits you, then now is the time for a quality replacement. 

Hazlemere offers a wide range of UPVC and composite doors. Our doors provide a variety of customisation options, however deciding on which door to pick can be tricky. UPVC and composite doors are both popular picks with advantages to each. We have outlined some factors you might want to consider when contemplating which door to choose. Maybe your current front door has become worn out over the years, or perhaps you’re looking for an exciting style upgrade. Whatever your motivation is, both doors make fantastic options for a replacement.

Visual appeal

Composite and UPVC doors are each manufactured from different materials. Composite doors are constructed from a number of materials and UPVC is a high quality hardened plastic. UPVC can be used to achieve a wood-like finish such as Irish oak door may have. UPVC also has a wide range of colour options beyond typical white. Composite doors offer a huge range of beautiful designs to choose from. A realistic wood grain effect similar to a stylish traditional timber door can also be achieved when installing a composite door.

Home security

As discussed, your front door is the gateway to your household, the barrier between inside and outside and a symbol of home sweet home. Your front door should offer protection and leave you feeling safe and guarded. Whether you choose a UPVC door or a composite door, you can have confidence in security when leaving your house unoccupied.

All our UPVC and composite doors boast robust frames and a technical multi-point locking system. Along with sturdy materials and quality designs, the engineering of our doors makes them reliable, safe and secure.


Invest in your home with a superb quality front door. A bespoke front door from Hazlemere is a worthwhile investment and money well spent. Buyer’s remorse will be the last thing on your mind once you step foot through your beautiful new front door for the first time. All our door products are made to measure. Giving an exact price over the phone or email without the precise measurements can be difficult.

In general, composite doors are more expensive than UPVC. Despite the difference in price both our composite and UPVC doors are fantastic quality and products you can rely on.  Both doors are valuable purchases. Our doors are energy efficient and built extremely well saving you money on energy bills and replacement doors for many years to come.

Moreover, when purchasing one of our doors you will receive your 10 Year Guarantee. This helps preserve the quality of your front door and provides longevity to your worthy investment.
