Composite doors are now one of the most popular entrance door options for UK homeowners. Using a combination of materials, they provide outstanding levels of home security and thermal performance with a stylish and attractive aesthetic appearance. Composite doors come in a wide variety of styles and designs. Perfect for both contemporary and traditional properties, composite doors will add style and value to any home.

If you’re planning a door replacement project, a composite door is an excellent choice. To give you a complete idea of the best options for you, let’s take a look at the different types of composite doors available from Emereo.

Composite doors West Yorkshire

At Emereo, we supply and install a selection of high-quality composite doors from industry leading manufacturing companies. Solidor composite doors, Hallmark Doors, and Distinction Doors are all leading composite door brands with a wide range of features and benefits. For homeowners in Huddersfield and across West Yorkshire, our composite doors are an excellent choice.

Composite doors have been used extensively in local authority renovation projects. At Emereo, we work closely with several local authorities and have supplied composite doors as their doors of choice. Composite doors are often chosen by local authorities for their superior security and weather performance. They are a great way to ensure performance is optimized and all building regulations requirements are met.

How do I choose a composite door?

Choosing the best composite door for your home will ultimately depend on your expectations. Knowing what you want from your new door will help you to make a fully informed decision. Important points to consider when planning a door replacement project include:

  • Materials used (timber, PVC, foam, aluminium etc.)
  • Colour choices
  • Hardware options
  • Energy efficiency performance
  • Security standards
  • Weather resistance
  • Styles and designs (modern or traditional)

Once you have a clear idea of what you expect from your new composite door, it will be easier to choose the best door to meet your requirements.

What is the best composite door brand?

As mentioned above, the best composite door for you will depend on your expectations and personal preference. To give you a clear idea of how the three composite door brands available at Emereo compare, we’ve compiled this useful comparison table.

Composite doors Huddersfield

As you can see, our different composite door brands provide a selection of benefits for your home. One of the main differences between Solidor composite doors and Hallmark and Distinction doors is the core material.

Solidor’s 48mm timber core is strong and robust helping to create a door which will resist even the most sustained attempts at forced entry. When home security is your main priority, a Solidor composite door is an excellent choice.

Hallmark and Distinction composite doors, on the other hand, feature an insulating foam core. Although not quite as robust as a solid timber core, they are 19% more thermally efficient. When improving energy efficiency is your focus, Hallmark and Distinction doors are the doors for you.

Composite doors for all property types

At Emereo, we fully understand that different properties require different types of doors. Whether you live in a traditional property with classic architectural features or a modern home with a cleaner contemporary style, our composite doors can be specified to complement your home’s design.

From early 20th century modernist designs to stylish contemporary shapes and styles, our composite doors are perfect for all types of home. Many traditional door styles feature a half-moon glazed section in the upper half of the door. This design is tastefully replicated in many of our composite door models.

For more contemporary properties, a selection of square or circular glass areas can be selected to create a unique appearance and bring more natural light into your home. Alternatively, many of our composite doors can be specified with no glass sections at all. This helps to increase privacy, maximise security and thermal performance, and even boost acoustic insulation.

Don’t just take our word for it

Nothing pleases us more than happy customers. So, here are just a few reasons why we remain the first choice for savvy homeowners, trade installers, and builders in Huddersfield and Yorkshire.

We are delighted with our new windows and doors. The lads from Emereo were punctual, polite and efficient.  The work took two days to complete and the Emereo staff left our house clean and tidy both days. We are so impressed with the blinds in our french windows. They are so neat and unobtrusive, whilst giving us the privacy we require.

We have already noticed a difference to the warmth in the house and a distinct lack of draughts that we experience with our old windows and doors.

I would not hesitate to recommend Emereo to friends and family.  Andy runs a great company with well trained staff and high standards from start to finish.  I cannot thank them enough.

Highly recommend. Efficient, excellent workmanship, clean up after themselves. No decorating required afterwards. Finished mine in a day. Brilliant job – thankyou.


Amazing job today, polite, clean and amazingly efficient.


Spot on from initial quote to install. Entire house refitted and windows look amazing. Impressed with how clean and tidy the house was after all the work the lads put in. Cannot recommend enough.


I love my new doors thank you. The lads have done a great job.

The white interior of the inner door and the choice I made for the glass with your help makes a huge difference to the light coming in. It’s really lovely thank you.

It’s also great having the same key for both doors.

Thanks for all your help Andy and I will definitely recommend you to friends and family. Very friendly and supportive – great customer service
