UK: Exterior Doors: Exterior Door Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT EXTERIOR DOORS
The most common materials for exterior doors are timber or composite. Timber exterior doors are usually made from hardwood, which may be painted or stained, or from engineered wood with a hardwood veneer. Composite doors are made from a fibreglass or UPVC skin applied to a rigid and insulated core. Fibreglass exterior doors can provide up to six times the heat insulation of timber doors. Although they are very practical, and do have a wood grain effect surface, fibreglass doors do not have the authentic look and feel of real timber. Steel exterior doors are also available. Leading UK suppliers of exterior doors are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
