The quality of the composite door is the first factor which decides the worth of the door. Some composite doors have laminated timber core while others come with a CFC free PU. The ones with a timber core are slightly stronger and also give a more unique wooden feel when someone knocks on them. This is why they are more expensive.

  • Style of the door

Composite door styles in the UK that are more popular and have a high demand will obviously be produced in bulk so they will be comparatively cheaper. However, if you would want to try something different or a unique style, that will obviously cost you more.

  • Color of the door

Basic colors like white, blue, grey, black or brown cost less because they are purchased more by the customers. However, if you want to design your own composite door and want to get a more unique color such as duck egg blue or poppy red, or choose a contrast between 2 colors, then it is going to cost you more.

  • Glazing of the door

Some companies might give you discounts while others will not. If you buy from a more popular and reputable company, it will obviously cost you more than some company that has newly opened or is less renowned.

  • Where do you live in the UK?

The area you live in will determine the cost of your door. For example, if you live in the suburbs, you will have to get your door delivered from the city and that will cost you more. Also, in some areas, few good tradesmen are present and so they charge more.

All these factors will determine the final price that your composite door comes to. The two most important factors influencing the price is your preference and your budget. Both of these factors can be controlled only by you. We advise that you choose wisely so that you do not regret your decision later.
