Do Composite Doors Fade?

Composite doors don't fade over time which makes them an excellent investment for your front or back door, which will stand the test of time.

Faded Composite Door

Composite doors are expected to last up to 35 years, which means many years of not fading and looking fantastic.

Design your door

The composite door style designs are endless, and with composite doors requiring virtually no maintenance, opting for a composite entrance door will glam up your home.

These doors are highly durable and stand the test of time, so if you're wondering if composite doors fade, fading is not in the near future for your robustly constructed door!

This guide will go through tips to maintain the gorgeous glam of your composite door.


Dream Composite Door Designs That Won't Fade Fast

With us, you can create the door of your dreams. From glass design, different colours, different frames, and different shapes, a composite door is a rejuvenation for the front entrance of any home.

Modern composite doors have become very popular for various reasons. It's the perfect choice for modernising your home entrance, and the colour glass inserts forming part of the door design have added to its rise in the door rankings.

The versatility of composite doors, with their authentic timber appearance, distinguishes them from the old designs of a typical un-plasticised polyvinyl chloride (UPVC) door.


Composite Door durability

Composite doors are extremely durable, and with a long lifespan of a good 10 to 30 years, you can put the fade worries away for another day.

Composite door durability stems from its solid core, consisting of built-in timber with glass-reinforced plastic (being a polyester component) as an outer skin.

Its robust construction means that it leaves a smaller carbon footprint, with energy efficiency as a priority.

This high-performance design of composite doors is more powerful than uPVC doors, which means minimal maintenance.

With thermal insulation, thermal efficiency means that your home will be kept at the perfect temperature during all seasons.

The reinforced plastic skin protects your door from the sun's UV rays, similar to how sunblock would protect your human skin from exposure.

Come rain or shine, your door will stay looking brilliant! If you look after your door and frequently clean the exterior, its longevity will increase, and then you will have joy for years to come, walking through your beautiful door daily.

How To Stop Your Composite Door Fading

Whether your door design is contemporary & modern, classic, edgy or traditional, having clean composite doors is easy and requires super low maintenance. 

With a few simple steps, you can maintain your new door with a little bit of tender, loving care, a soft cloth and some warm, soapy water. The warm soapy water should not contain any bleaching detergents in it.

You can use a simple glass cleaner to wipe and keep the glass shiny, and there is no need to polish your door surface as you would with wood.

These doors are weather resistant and will withstand stormy days, plus the security features associated with our doors will keep you safe and protected inside. Restoring faded composite doors can be as easy as that!

Maintain Your Composite Door & Fight The Fade

"Do composite doors fade in sunlight?", to that we say, exposure to the sun and elements has an impact on all materials.

Whether you have always had wooden doors or previously preferred timber doors, wood-inspired windows, a wood deck or wooden products in general, extensive exposure to the sun over extended periods may slightly affect the appearance of a door.

The sun will luckily not cause you to have a faded composite door for years to come, as composite doors are extremely durable. The outer skin of the door protects it against scratches, stains, and fading, and prevents your composite doors from warping over time.

These doors also have a product called glazing as an additional protective barrier which will prevent the chances that your composite doors warp.

Not only does glazing add to the sleek style and bespoke design of your door, but it also works to minimise exposure to the elements.

You can also resort to painting your composite door or staining your door to bring back some of the colour, making it look brand-new again.

With the range of designs, colour selections, frames and options to your availability, your door fading in the sun should be the last of your worries for at least a few years.
