Composite Doors vs. uPVC Doors


Choosing the right door for your property is a big decision, with front doors being the first thing any visitor will see and back doors giving you the ability to create light and access to your outside space. Leeds Windows have been helping customers in Yorkshire transform their homes for many years, providing stylish and hardwearing doors in a range of styles.


Two of our most popular door styles include composite doors and uPVC doors, both of which come with their own benefits and work well as front doors or back doors.


Composite Doors


Using a combination of PVC, wood, insulating foam and glass reinforced plastic, composite doors are made from various materials to provide strength and durability. They are highly resistant to cracking, splitting, warping and rot, offering superior weather resistance and energy efficiency compared to other door types. Combined with a quality lock, a composite door is ideal for any Leeds customers looking for a high security and hardwearing door. We supply and fit composite doors in various colours and finishes by leading brands such as UK manufacturer Bowater.


uPVC Doors


Unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) is a resilient yet lightweight plastic used in many areas of construction. Due to its durability, resistance and low cost, it is an ideal material for front or back doors, as well as windows. uPVC doors are built to last and are highly weather-resistant, UV-resistant and energy-efficient. Thanks to advanced technology, they are also available in a huge spectrum of colours and can be matched to compliment existing uPVC windows.


Energy Efficient Doors


Whatever style of door you choose, it is important it complies with current energy efficiency standards set by the UK government. As of October 2010, it has been law that all replacement front doors and back doors must achieve a ‘U’ value rating of 1.8W/m²K or less. This ensures homes across Leeds and the rest of the UK are better insulated and helps to reduce energy usage and costs.


Whether its composite doors, uPVC doors or any other type of door, Leeds Windows supplies and installs products that always meet the ‘U’ value rating specifications. By using highly energy efficient glass for all installations and repairs, we can dramatically reduce your gas and electric bills.
