Frequently Asked Questions

Here's some handy information all about composite doors, we're just a phone call away if you want to know more…

Q: What is cylinder bumping?

A: A special key is used, and a person with little or no skill can bypass a cylinder quietly in seconds. There is no sign of forced entry with this technique and therefore, most insurance companies will try to use this to their advantage

Q: Why composite GRP?

A: Our doors are manufactured from compression moulded fibre-
glass one piece skins. These are tough, stable, durable, very low maintenance and provide long warranties

Q: Will I have to paint or stain my door, like a timber door?

A: Not for at least fifteen years in normal everyday use - however, you can paint or stain over at any time without effecting your warranty.

Q: How do I clean/look after my door?

A: We provide a maintenance guide. We also include an easy to use instruction guide on your new multipoint lock, with every door order.

Q: How long will it take to install the door from an order?

A: We normally quote two weeks, as each door is manufactured bespoke to your property. Please take into consideration the additional time needed to manufacture your glazing choice.

Q: Can I still have a yale lock on my door?

A: We can still use a multipoint lock and use a split spindle. You still have the security of a multipoint lock with a "yale lock" facility.

Q: I am concerned about security, how can I make my door safer? I have heard of problems with the cylinders.

A: There are various options too many to list here. We have different cylinders - some that break off at the door edge if anyone tries to gain access by breaking the cylinder. This will stop anyone gaining access, but you can still use the door and the cylinder is easily replaced.

Q: How long does it take for someone to call out to survey and give a quotation?

A: We always arrange a convenient time for you. Normally within 48 hours - Why not visit the showroom and see our extensive range?

Q: How long have you been supplying GRP composite doors?

A: We have been supplying GRP composite doors for over ten years now, but they have been used in the USA for over 30 years.

Q: Why are your PVC-u composite doors more economic than GRP?

A: PVC-u is cheaper than fibreglass, and is a manufactured using a completely different process. The PVC-u sub frame is also cheaper than structural plastic. Doors are only available in white and the door is guaranteed for ten years and not twenty-five.
