Composite Door Comparison

You can't always see the difference

Here we take a look at four composite doors, from the ranges we supply and install at Andy Glass Windows. At first glance they all look very similar, so what makes them different and how does this effect the cost?

Please note that our door suppliers have all been hand selected by us for their quality and cost effectiveness. Additional features can alter door costing, for example frame colours, matching internal and external colours (as opposed to white internally), your choice of hardware and locking mechanism as well as glazing options. We will always be happy to discuss your requirements and match them to the best product for you, providing choice at different price points.
