One of the most searched terms is ‘cheap composite doors’.

We believe cheap is false economy in every walk of life, however affordable quality is a completely different question.

We compare a door from one of the leading retail warehouses B&Q considered to be a cheap composite door, against our own offering of the same style and similar glass design.

Right the similarities:

B&Q Global Door
Frame reinforcement Yes Yes
Multipoint locking Yes Yes
Toughened glass yes Yes
Pre-finished Yes Yes
Free delivery Yes Yes

Lets where the similarities end:

B&Q Global Door
Choose Height No Yes
Choose Width No Yes
Open Out No Yes
Choose Colour No Yes
Furniture matched No Yes
Left or right No Yes
Delivery less than 7 days No Yes
Set delivery time No Yes
Installation service No Yes
Delivery on small vehicle No Yes

You can take the product specifications on face value, but you need to look further. Just because it says multi-point locking, what does that mean?
Our door comes with a Yale multi-point lock and a Yale 1 star high security euro cylinder. You can check out why a cylinder is one of the most important features here.

We know a thing or to about door installation and we understand to get the correctly fitted door, it needs to be made to measure, not a set size and set configuration.

Check our online designer prices:

So our door with handle comes in at £535 inc Vat and the B&Q door comes in at £499 inc Vat without handle.
Once you’ve found the right handle on the site its another £18.98 inc Vat which means their total is now £517.98 inc Vat

A difference of just £17.02 inc vat.

When you put this in to perspective with delivery times and the thought of cutting out your new door to accommodate a letter plate when buying from the retailer, we believe this makes us in comparison a cheap composite door, but with all the added benefits.

However, we still prefer the term affordable quality.
