Composite front doors are a popular choice when doing home improvement due to their large range of design options and their impressive durability. If you are considering buying a new composite external door, you are likely researching how much you can expect to pay.

Here, we take you through what factors impact the cost of composite front doors and the features of Vufold’s composite front door range.

How much can you expect to pay for a new composite front door, and what factors can impact cost?

Composite front doors often cost more than options such as uPVC and timber front doors, largely due to their impressive strength, design options and durability. The combination of various materials used in composite front doors results in an extremely reliable and strong front door, as the door benefits from the properties of each material. The price you can expect to pay for a composite front door depends on a variety of factors, such as styles, the supplier you choose, whether your door is bespoke, and more. Typically, the price includes the composite door itself, any additional door furniture and hardware, and installation costs. Vufold front doors come with the tools required for easy installation, meaning you don’t have to worry about additional installation costs. At Vufold, our composite front door prices range from £889 to £1799, depending on the design and model you choose.

For premium and bespoke composite front door options, you can often expect to pay slightly more, especially if additional features and requirements are necessary. However, choosing a bespoke supplier can ensure you get the perfect door for you.
