There is an old saying that ‘You get what you pay for’ and that could not be more appropriate when it comes to the subject of exterior doors for your home. 

You may be unaware of them, so here are some insights into why we recommend you consider a Door Stop composite door when it’s time to replace your doors. 

What are composite doors made from?

Composite doors are made from a variety of materials, combined in perfect balance and bonded using the most modern techniques. The layering and glueing of the materials are done under extreme pressure and each element brings several amazing benefits with it. 

1. Timber core gives a base of extreme strength and flexibility

2. Layers of foam and uPVC provide superb insulation

3. Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) is a key element in their incredibly robust nature

All this is surrounded by a metal frame and the end result is the ultimate in security. It has the bonus effect of making your property look impressive and inviting to visitors and potential buyers.

Strength and security 

Composite doors have a multi-point locking mechanism that makes them almost impervious to forced entry. The material itself offers unbeatable resilience and can endure almost any treatment and remain impenetrable. 

Any intruder that thinks they can force their way through a Door Stop composite door is in for a long, fruitless task. 

Reduced energy bills

Composite doors are completely weather resistant and superb at insulating your home. The compact layers make them exceptionally good at preventing any air or temperature transfer in either direction. This goes further than you might think towards reducing energy bills and efficiently maintaining your preferred temperature at all times. 

Virtually zero maintenance

The most you will ever have to do to keep your composite door in tip-top condition is to give it an occasional wipe with a damp cloth. It really is as simple as that. 

Composite doors are unaffected by sunlight or the worst weather nature can throw at them. Even when temperatures fluctuate from one extreme to the other, they remain unaffected.

How long do composite doors last?

Their longevity is truly exceptional and you can typically expect a brand-new composite door to last for at least 30 years. They will virtually pay for themselves in reduced energy bills during that time and still look as good as new when they’re done. Composite doors really are worth having.

Will a composite door match my traditional style?

Another amazing aspect of composite doors is that they can be made to match any style or period. Many are made to look like timber but the options for customising them are almost limitless. From the colour and appearance to custom etchings on the glazed panels, you can create the door to fit your home rather than the other way around. 

We guarantee a perfect fit every time as each door is made to measure and designed to fit.

Are composite doors more expensive than other doors?

A composite door outperforms all other kinds of doors in every way imaginable but their superior construction does not come without an associated cost. They require a much more complex manufacturing process and higher-quality construction materials than other doors. 

However, when you consider the energy-saving capabilities and extreme longevity of a composite door alone, they still represent fantastic value for money. They are unmatched at creating the best impression of your property and certainly add value if you are planning to sell.

100% recommend Paul and Harry a great father and son team! I'm so pleased that we used them to supply and fit our new front door. Straightforward to deal with from start to finish and communication throughout was excellent. They are extremely knowledgeable and were able to offer advice and suggestions when we were choosing the door we wanted. Nothing was rushed during the installation with great attention to detail. They took away our old door and frame and left everything clean and tidy at the end of the job. Thank you, Harry, for taking the time to go through everything with us at the end of the job, much appreciated. I would not hesitate in using Paul and Harry again. Thank you both so much, we are so pleased!

Had a door fitted by these very friendly chaps about 18 months ago. We're very happy with it. When an issue arose with the mechanism, they came out and fixed it in about 5 minutes and it's as it if is brand new again. Very pleased, would highly recommend.

Highly recommend. We had our front door fitted by this lovely team. They were friendly, helpful, willing to listen to me debate options and provided helpful advice for choosing the right door for us. When he had a slight issue (no fault of their own) they came out to us the very next day and sorted it. Such a good supplier to work with!

Brilliant service. No hidden costs or fees and no heavy sales tactics. Very open and clear from the start, and they worked really hard to fit a great new door in our thinner than average doorway! Great value and great result. Will be recommending to all.

Highly recommend Rock Solid doors. We have used this friendly family company several times and have recommended them to others who have been equally impressed with the high standard of work and the product. We have received quick service and found them to be very reliable knowledgeable with no hard sell. The installations have been carried out professionally and they go the extra mile to ensure you are happy with everything. The external doors are robust and we are impressed with the quality of the product.

Faultless customer service from a fantastic company to do business with. From start to finish it’s been a pleasure buying composite doors from Rock Solid Doors – in fact, we were so impressed with the front door and installation service they provided (we opted for a Solidor Ludlow 2 with 2 x fully glazed side lights) that we got them back to supply our utility door (Windsor Solidor – fully glazed) shortly afterwards. Paul dealt with our initial queries promptly, came to measure on site and provided a competitive quote very efficiently. These guys are first-rate craftsmen and know their stuff: evidenced by working around a couple of quirky construction issues without any problem – leaving us really impressed with the end product. It’s great to come across a local business that takes pride in what they do, going the extra mile for customer satisfaction – we cannot recommend Rock Solid Doors highly enough! Thank you Paul and Harry!

Brilliant service from Paul at Rock Solid; our letter box seal had gone causing a slight leak - he responded immediately, attended this week and fixed with a new gasket. Would highly recommend the product and the service.

I ordered my Vogue Rock door with the Ocean glass from Rock Solid Doors at the end of 2021. I had a number of criteria when searching for my new entrance door. It’s ability to insulate had to be A rated. I also wanted it to have a good quality locking mechanism that is smooth in action. My new door needed to be modern with a pane that lets plenty of light in and thus goes lower than the half line on the door, while leaving sufficient height for the letter box, so it is sufficiently high to be comfortably reached by our postman. The Vogue Rock door provided all that and more. I love sailing and the Ocean glass design evokes the lines of a sail in a beautifully minimalistic fashion. It also makes the door look unique, which is always a bonus. During my search for the perfect door I had lots of technical questions too. Only Paul and his colleague from Rock Solid Doors were able to answer all my questions and provide a door that offered what I was looking for. They supplied and fitted my new door in early 2022. My heating bill has gone down noticeably, as a result. With the golden oak wood grain on the outside, my door looks beautiful and elegant. Everyone who comes to the house for the first-time comment on it. The multi-locking mechanism has a smooth action and it is easy to use. The white wood grain on the inside finishes off the hallway like a designer window and door in one. Paul and his colleague went out of their way to make sure that I have the door and the finish just, as I wanted and that it worked seamlessly there on. We could not be happier. Thank You!
