This will not only save you money but will also help the environment. A composite door, if properly maintained - i.e. lubricate the hinges and locks every 6 months, can last for up to 35 years.
Low Maintenance - Incredibly easy to look after. They have the appearance of a traditional timber door but are coated with a plastic skin (otherwise known as GRP that will not fade, crack, flake or peel) which means you will never have to paint it. Simply wipe clean with warm soapy water - That's it!
