Can you paint composite doors?

Grey composite entrance door from Associated Windows in Bristol

Often considered the most robust and reliable front entrance style on the market, composite doors provide homeowners with a lot of benefits. Multi-layered, insulating, and secure, one question we at Associated Windows get a lot, however, is “Can you paint composite doors?”. So, to set the record straight once and for all, we’ve taken the time to provide an in-depth answer.

No, but it’s not the end of the world!

Unfortunately, it’s true: you cannot paint composite doors once they are supplied and fitted. But don’t worry, it’s for the benefit of both you and your property. Composite doors are built with durability in mind, being extremely hard-wearing in nature to better fend off any harsh weather elements. Because of this mixture of materials, it’s very difficult to repaint your composite door over the panel’s original colour.

This may come as a surprise to some, particularly those who have gotten used to changing the colour of their original timber door. Despite evoking the look and feel of wood, however, composite doors are an extremely different beast. For them to perform fully efficient and be kept looking stylish, all that’s needed is a wash using warm soapy water and a touch up. Your composite door will look as good as new in no time.

The freedom to customise without the need to paint

While making all the creative decisions at the beginning of the composite door fitting process can seem like a huge pressure, the large number of options available helps alleviate that. In terms of just colour finish alone, we offer everything from authentic timber woodgrain tones like Golden Oak, Walnut, and Rosewood to more contemporary shades like Peacock Blue, Aubergine, and Anthracite Grey. We’re sure to have something suited to every house style and personal taste.

If that wasn’t enough, there’s an entire collection of locking, handle, and hardware options ready to be easily integrated into the panel. The best-looking composite doors are those that are the most unique, so it’s only right that we give you the appropriate tools. We do as such while keeping composite doors’ inability to be painted in mind, and it’s our hope that you’ll never feel the need to do so.

Added security and efficiency as well as great style

With style taken care of, your new composite door from Associated Windows can get to work keeping the living space insulated and defended from attack. Their composite construction means being able to take advantage of each material’s individual benefits. You get the low maintenance of uPVC, the feel of timber, and thermal performance of aluminium.
