Frequently asked questions
Which door is better, uPVC or composite?
Both composite and uPVC doors have their own advantages and considerations to keep in mind when making a decision. Composite doors are praised for their superior durability, resilience and longer-lasting appearance. They often feature a timber core covered in a GRP skin, offering traditional aesthetics, colour options and better insulation and scratch resistance.
On the other hand, uPVC doors are low maintenance, customisable, resistant to rot and fading and can be more budget-friendly, at least initially. Assessing priorities in terms of appearance, energy efficiency, durability, security and budget can help homeowners make an informed choice between the two options.
Can you fit a composite door to an existing uPVC frame?
It is indeed possible to fit a composite door to an existing uPVC frame. The dimensions of composite doors can often be adjusted to match standard uPVC frame sizes. However, it is crucial to ensure that the uPVC frame is in good condition and structurally sound before installing the composite door.
Seeking advice from a professional installer, like us at Emereo, or a reputable door supplier is recommended to assess compatibility and potentially make necessary adjustments during the installation process. By ensuring proper dimensions and seeking professional guidance, fitting a composite door onto an existing uPVC frame can be achieved successfully.
